MAKING BEST USE OF OUR RUNWAY
"We have a unique opportunity as the owner of London Luton Airport to support sustainable growth of the local, sub-regional and national economies, and help meet the significant projected shortfall in aviation capacity in London and the South-East to 2050."
Following our initial consultation on proposed long-term sustainable growth of London Luton Airport in summer 2018, we have now begun a second public consultation from 16 October to 16 December 2019.
As we confirmed in February 2019, we are targeting expansion of the airport to 32 million passengers per annum (mppa) from its current cap of 18 mppa, using the existing single runway.
This second ’statutory’ consultation includes key strategies to minimise and mitigate impacts on the environment.
We would like to welcome everyone to attend one of our community consultation events in autumn 2019, and to provide their feedback. All responses will be carefully considered for the future of our airport.

It is expected that our application to the government for a Development Consent Order (DCO) will be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate in mid-2020. The final decision will rest with the Secretary of State of Transport.
We'd like to keep you up to date with the latest news about our proposals for London Luton Airport. Opt in to receive emails from us and you'll get the latest news first.
