Plans to expand London Luton Airport have been approved by Luton Borough Council.
It means the airport will be able to increase capacity from 12 to 18 million passengers a year.
We have committed to developing an Airport which everyone in the local area will be proud of and passengers from all over the world will enjoy visiting.
In the year of our 75th Anniversary this is an exciting milestone for all of us at the Airport, the local area, and the millions of passengers who use us for business travel, to visit friends and family or to get away on holiday.”
