London Luton Airport Guide

London Luton Airport Guide


London Luton airport is undergoing a £100m redevelopment which will allow it to offer a transformed passenger experience in the future. As part of this redevelopment you will notice some changes to the airport as you pass through. There will also, from time to time, be some disruption as work on the airport is carried out. Where major disruption events are expected we will provide updated information on the ‘Latest Travel Information’ section of our web site.

easyJet is working closely with the airport’s owners to deliver a step change in customer experience. We are genuinely excited about the changes taking place at the airport and we think you will be too. Take a look to see what’s planned for the future.

"Welcome to London Luton Airport and on behalf of easyJet I wish you a pleasant journey through our corner of the network. I have a great team here in Luton who are all looking forward to being of service to you, making it easy, at every step. We have put this guide together to try and make your journey that little bit easier! Have a great journey." (Denise, Airport Manager)
