Consultation for London Luton Airport expansion

There are just under two weeks left of London Luton Airport's public consultation.

​The consultation, about its proposed long-term expansion, runs until 16 December. Proposals include a second terminal north of the runway and extensive new airfield infrastructure - in preparation for the airport's growth to 32 million passengers a year by 2039.
Also proposed are a third station and extension for the Luton DART fast transit from Luton Airport Parkway station to the new terminal, plus on- and off-site highway improvements.
