Application submitted for London Luton Airport expansion

Posted on by in Weekly News

London Luton Airport has submitted plans for an expansion to raise capacity and cement its position as a regional transport hub.

The plans include community funding proposals that, in time, could provide an additional £14M every year for communities across Luton and neighbouring areas, and would support the company’s wider ambition of making London Luton Airport a leader in sustainable aviation.

Consent is being sought to increase the Airport’s permitted capacity of 18 million passengers per annum to 32 million. This would be achieved with the construction of a new terminal.

Graham Olver, Chief Executive Officer of Luton Rising (the council-owned company that runs the Airport), said: “We’re pleased to bring forward these proposals for the expansion of London Luton Airport – we aim to enhance economic activity in and around Luton, provide numerous community benefits, and make the airport a leader in sustainable aviation.

“We have certainly endeavoured to do everything we can to deliver an achievable, detailed and evidence-based application that will meet the Inspectorate’s requirements. We hope that this will mark the start of the next phase of our commitment to grow London Luton Airport and help to deliver employment, prosperity and positive social impact.”
