About our project
LTN is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and is now the fifth busiest airport in the UK. At its current rate of growth, LTN is forecast to reach its existing permitted capacity of 18 million passengers per annum (mppa) in 2021. It is our responsibility to plan for LTN’s long-term future, and ensure that everyone can enjoy the benefits of this growth. We believe it may be possible for LTN to handle up to 36-38 mppa. This website sets out our early thinking as to how this can be achieved, and asks for your views.
Our key considerations
We appreciate that airport operations can have an impact on people and the environment, and acknowledge that communities close to the airport will be affected. As we develop our masterplan, we are looking at the potential impacts that expansion may bring and ways to manage them, as we believe our plans must happen in the right way. We will look to minimise and, where necessary, mitigate potential adverse environmental impacts.
We are now consulting with you
From 25 June until 31 August 2017, we are consulting on our plans to expand LTN by making best use of our runway. Our plan is to progressively expand LTN to achieve the growth, which would require new terminal capacity and other landside and airside infrastructure. We are keen to hear your views on the proposals, and on the matters you think we should be considering. Please take time to read our proposals and complete the related questions in our consultation questionnaire.
