Romance beckons for Valentine's passengers

More than 100,000 fly off into the sunset

The capital city of love looks set to be busy this weekend as passengers jet off from Luton airport for a Valentine's break.

More than 100,000 people are expected to make a getaway, with Paris, Barcelona, Prague, Vienna, Amsterdam and Budapest the most popular choices for romantic city breaks.

Sun seekers will head for the Canary Islands, Sharm El Sheikh or Marrakech - while passengers looking for somewhere more unusual may head for central and eastern Europe.

The airport runs flights to Poland, Romania, Bulgaria and, as of last December, the Ukraine and they are proving increasingly popular.
