Swift Hire’s Response to the Luton Airport Fire on October 10th


Dear valued customers and community members,

On the night of October 10th, an unexpected incident unfolded at Luton Airport. A significant fire erupted in one of the car parks, leading to the suspension of all flights until 3pm the following day. Understandably, this caused distress for many travelers who were left uncertain about their immediate plans.

With over 100 firefighters working tirelessly to manage the situation, it was clear that this was a major incident. We learned that around 1,200 cars were affected by the fire, and some individuals, including firefighters and airport staff, had to seek medical attention.

From our viewpoint, the community’s safety and comfort are paramount. Our fleet of buses and minibuses were ready and available to ensure stranded passengers could reach their destinations or return home safely.

We want to extend our gratitude to the emergency services who responded to the incident and our heartfelt wishes for a speedy recovery to those injured. We also want to thank our dedicated drivers and staff, who worked extra hours to accommodate the sudden influx of requests.
