Wizz Air HQ lands at Grade A office building at Luton Airport

31st March 2023

Wizz Air have made the final approach and landed perfectly at Percival House based at Luton Airport. Regional Developer and Investor, Hampton Brook, has invested over £10 million in refurbishing the former Monarch HQ and Wizz Air now joins the Airport Operations business in the fit for purpose HQ.

The relocation of the company to Percival House forms part of Wizz Air’ expansion plans and highlights its continued commitment to London Luton Airport and the surrounding region. It has agreed to lease 12,931 sq ft of Grade A office accommodation within the headquarters style building to support its passengers travelling to 75 destinations worldwide, as well as providing an extra boost for the local economy and creating more local jobs.

Since its acquisition of the 36,900 sq ft office building, which was left empty when Monarch Airlines collapsed, Hampton Brook has invested significantly in transforming the three-storey office building to deliver an exceptional high standard of accommodation. The transformation of the space has already attracted London Luton Airport Operations (LLAOL) for its headquarters, having consolidated multi-site operations on the Airport, where it is responsible for the operation and management of the same.

Announcing the latest deal, Ian Jackson, Director of Hampton Brook, said: “We undertook this comprehensive refurbishment because we were confident in the expansion and significant inward investment of £1.5bn expansion plans at Luton Airport, which are now set to start in 2025. Exciting plans include the delivery of the £225 million light rail system (the DART) linking the Airport with Luton Airport Parkway station and is anticipated to be fully operational shortly.

“To have secured another high-profile occupier is an excellent result that endorses our strategy; to deliver high quality office accommodation at a key strategic Transport Hub that focuses on the changing occupational needs of forward-thinking organisations such as Luton Airport Operations and Wizz Air.”

Strong interest in the building continues to be shown from other high calibre occupiers for the ground floor space, totaling 11,750 sq ft. The building has the advantage of both the sustainable features and the transport infrastructure improvements that have taken place at the Airport, as well as its ongoing planned expansion.

Percival House comprises a total of 36,900 sq ft of office accommodation over three floors and sits in a 2.9-acre site. The building benefits from a manned reception, ancillary space/storage, as well as lifts, air conditioning and 187 car parking spaces.
