London Luton reveals new airport 'masterplan'

Airport operator London Luton Airport Operations yesterday revealed a new masterplan that aims to help it meet a forecast of a rise in passenger numbers from 10M to between 15M and 16M annually.

The phased development over the next 15 years involves improvements to the terminal with construction of a new pier, extending the taxiway, and construction of two new traffic lanes for a new set-down system.

It also plans continual improvements to transport links with the capital.

 “London mayor Boris Johnson has proposed a new hub in the Thames Estuary to deal with the constraints on medium and long haul aviation capacity in London and the South East,” said London Luton managing director Glyn Jones. “Today we have outlined a credible and realistic plan that, if approved, will put Luton at the heart of solving the burden on point-to-point short haul operators who want to grow.”
