Luton Airport guide

Jump to:


Terminal layout

Luton Airport has one terminal, spread over two floors. Those arriving by train will need to head to Luton Airport Parkway Station, which is a ten minute shuttle ride from the airport. These leave every ten minutes from 5am to midnight and meet all overnight trains calling at the station. Visitors will need a ticket that takes you all the way through to Luton Airport. Without this, the shuttle will cost £1.60 each way. The journey from central London stations takes approximately 40 minutes, including bus transfer.

Bus and coach bays are located in front of the terminal building.

Terminal map

Luton Airport has a full map of their terminal on site, which shows where you’ll need to head for check-in and where you'll be able to find amenities through the airport.


Check-in is on the ground floor of the terminal. To reach security and departures, you'll need to head to the upper floor.

There are baby changing facilities by the toilets on each floor of the terminal and near the information desk on the ground floor and in two locations on the upper floor; by Frankie and Benny's and near The Real Food Company.

There are currently no facilities for heating baby milk throughout the terminal.

Families are permitted to push buggies through security, but your child will have to be removed momentarily while the buggy is x-rayed.
