A total of seven games will be played at Wembley in Euro 2020 - three host games, a last 16 tie, two semi finals and the final.

Stand as in single but seeing it is costing around £2.5 million it would maybe suggest it will be bigger than parking just an Airbus and will be used for remote long term parking of biz jets and could be attached to taxiway Foxtrot. Harrods and Signature aprons are signified by a stand number.

If you read the Contract Notice section 11.2.4 they do actually state Stands.

I believe this is the area designated between the East Apron and South Stands which will become available when MSCP2 is built. Just an apron as Lot 1 states a value of £700k for it.Lot 2 ( local works) doesn’t have a value inserted but states the whole project will be capped at £2.5 Million.So what will the local work be at circa £1.8 Million.
A Pier extension? how much did the new Pier cost I wonder!

I must be going senile, I have mentioned before the probability of an apron going on the temp drop off area and then I forget about it. If a pier reached this apron why stop there and not continue it to the south stands although it would be a long walk.

Loads were around 90% outbound and over 90% inbound according to a local news report.

According to Gibraltar TV a total of 125 on the Luton-Gib leg, no details on the Gib-Luton leg. Usual water cannon welcome etc.

Does anyone have a document/plans or information relating to the current construction work at the airport (e.g. the retaining wall in front of the control tower by the dual carridgeway, the new taxi way or stands etc)

I found the documentation for the long term plan of the airport, however I can't find anything for the short term.

It may have been posted in this thread already, but I can't seem to find it-- thanks.

The short term work is just temporary works so no plans have been published but the retaining wall in front of the control tower is for the temporary rerouting of the road to allow for a cut and cover tunnel to be dug for the Dart rail link. Once the tunnel is built the road will be put back to its present alignment.

Surf Air have never flown to LLA. I presume you mean LTN.
Can we all be more professional than the incompetent team that have decided to rebrand LTN as LLA.

Easy mistake to make. As the airport is called London Luton Airport they call themselves LLA

This is my point ...
All Airports are given an IATA code it is the Code the airport should be known as around the world, I have no problem with London Luton Airport but when people start to use a different 3 letter code for an airport problem start occurring.
One small but significant problem is if LLA becomes the norm and a passenger flys AMS-LTN but his bag ends up somewhere remote a RUSH bag label could be issued to LLA instead of LTN meaning the passenger will be longer without his bag or even worse the bag could just end up sitting in LLA and would never get reunited to the passenger.

Who is paying for the new stands, Concessionaire or the Luton public?

Very annoying if your bags were sent to Sweden but I doubt it would ever happen.

I speak from experience I worked very closely with a airline at STN that kept receiving Rush bags or if you prefer expedite bags from a Italian airport marked with the designator IATA code of STN it took almost a week to find out the bags should have been rush bags for Stavanger airport in Sweden code SVG.
