Ambitious plans submitted for London Luton Airport expansion project

London Luton Airport has submitted plans for a significant airport expansion to increase capacity from 18 million to 32 million passengers annually. The plans include community funding ideas. Over time, this could give communities in Luton and the surrounding areas an additional £14 million annually. Plans were revealed by Luton Rising, the Luton Council company that owns the airport.

Consent is being sought to build a new terminal, a major program of earthworks. By doing this, it will be possible to expand the current airfield platform and build new facilities on the airside and the landside. The Luton DART will be extended, and the surface access network will be improved, according to the airport owners. Further infrastructure improvements and initiatives are also wanted. This will help achieve the goal of zero-emission ground operations by 2040.

London Luton Airport expansion plan

An extensive consultation programme that lasted more than four years helped to shape the proposals. The Development Consent Order application for Luton Airport consists of 198 documents and more than 25,000 detailed pages of plans and proposals.

“We’re pleased to bring forward these proposals for the expansion of London Luton Airport,” said Graham Olver, chief executive officer of Luton Rising. “We aim to enhance economic activity in and around Luton. The project will also provide numerous community benefits and make the airport a leader in sustainable aviation.

“We are currently anticipating the Inspectorate’s decision on moving on to the DCO process’ examination stage. We hope that this will usher in the next stage of our commitment to expanding London Luton Airport. Thus, Luton and the surrounding communities will have much-deserved employment, prosperity, and positive social impact.”
