Climate change activists have blockaded the entrances to Luton Airport‘s private jet terminals today.

Extinction Rebellion dubbed their Valentine’s Day demonstration ‘love in action’ as they urged the government to ban private jets, tax frequent flyers and ‘make wealthy polluters pay’.

Eco zealots blockaded the entrances to Luton Airport’s Harrods Aviation and Signature private jet terminals.

The protest is part of a global co-ordinated action launched last week by climate activists across 11 countries that is targeting multiple sites in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and the US.

Groups chose to take action today due to the rise in the use of private jet flights for supposedly romantic Valentine’s Day dates.

Demonstrators have locked themselves to a large blue boat that is blocking all three gates to Luton Airport’s Signature Terminal.

Another group of protestors barricaded the entrance to the Harrods Aviation Terminal, with activists locked onto two oil barrels.

Other activists have gathered in front of both terminals dressed in hi-vis jackets, holding flags and banners in the style of airport signs, and wearing pink vests.
