London Luton Airport (LTN) has submitted an application to expand its current cap of 18 million annual passengers up to 32 million passengers per annum.

This expansion would involve extending the current airfield platform, constructing new airside and landside facilities, enhancing the surface access network and expanding the Luton DART automated people mover (APM) network.

The airport also plans to carry out landscaping and ecological improvements, as well as further infrastructure enhancements to support its target of achieving net-zero-emission ground operations by 2040.

Graham Olver, Chief Executive Officer of Luton Rising, said:

We’re pleased to bring forward these proposals for the expansion of London Luton Airport – we aim to enhance economic activity in and around Luton, provide numerous community benefits, and make the airport a leader in sustainable aviation. We now wait in anticipation for the Inspectorate’s decision as to whether we proceed to the examination stage of the DCO process.

The Development Consent Order (DCO) application includes 198 documents, containing just over 25,000 detailed pages of proposals and plans.

It will now be reviewed by the Planning Inspectorate, which will act on behalf of the Secretary of State for Transport to decide whether the application meets the required standards.
