5 reasons to fly from Luton Aiport

1. Parking is easy

By visiting Luton Parking you can book your holiday parking online at up to 60% off. They also offer priority and park up meet and greet options, taking the hassle out of getting to the departure lounge.

2. It’s actually a big airport

Despite having just one single runway, Luton Airport is bigger than you might expect and there’s plenty of space to wander (or run) around while waiting for a flight. Which is good news if you’ve got little ones who need to let off some steam before you get on the plane.

3. It has great shops

From MAC make up and Sunglass Hut to Kurt Geiger and Accessorize, the wide range of shops when you’re through security means you can pick up any last minute items that you have forgotten or left until the last minute to buy at the airport so you can save space when packing your suitcase.
