|London Luton Airport Ltd (LLAL) is pleased to let you know that today we’re announcing our preferred option for the long-term sustainable growth of the airport.
LLAL is the Luton Council company that owns London Luton Airport (LTN), and we’ll be targeting expansion to a capacity of 32 million passengers a year (mppa) from the current cap of 18 mppa, using the existing single runway.
The proposals are of a scale that require an application to the government for a Development Consent Order to authorise the expansion.
LTN is the UK’s fifth largest and fastest growing major airport. At its existing rate of growth, the airport will be operating at its current planning limit by 2020.
Our proposal is aimed at moving towards making best use of our existing single runway, in line with government policy and contributing to the projected shortfall in national aviation capacity.
It will seek to deliver maximum benefit to the local, regional and national economy and actively manage environmental impacts.

Representatives from Luton Airport will be at the Local Area Forum being held at Ivinghoe Town Hall this Thursday from 7pm if any members of the public wish to attend and ask questions.
