Originally used as a base for Royal Air Force fighters in 1938, and by 1969, it had become Britain’s most profitable airport. In 1990, thanks to the proliferation of low-budget airlines such as RyanAir traffic began increasing, and Luton’s championing of low-cost, no frills flying led EasyJet to choose Luton as their first UK base. By 1998, Luton had the fastest growing airport in the UK, and a large-scale development took place the following year which invested £40 million into the main terminal. The originally designed terminal now houses 60 check-in desks, state of the art baggage and information systems and a wide range of shops, restaurants and bars to suit every budget.
Many conveniences can be found in Luton Airport, such as The Someries, an executive lounge with a wide selection of drinks, music and television to escape the frenetic pace of the airport before your flight. For kids, there are GamesGrids and amusement centers to pass the time, and there is even a chapel close by the entrance to ensure peace of mind before the flight.
Luton Airport has excellent connections with key towns and cities across the UK. It is close by to the M1, which connects easily to London in the south and directly to Leeds and Newcastle in the north.
