London Luton Airport, located 30 miles north of Central London, is the fourth largest airport serving the capital after Heathrow, Gatwick, and Stansted.

Grab those last-minute holiday essentials at W.H.Smith, Boots, Dixons and The Sunglasses Hut, or browse for some new clothes or accessories at Monsoon, Tie Rack, Cotton Traders, Kurt Geiger, JD Sports or Accessorize.
From eating on the go to enjoying a leisurely pre-flight meal, there's a selection of food outlets at Luton Airport to suit all your dining needs. Choose from Starbucks, Costa Coffee, PIP, Krispy Kreme, and Pret a Manger for snacks and drinks, as well as Est Caffe and Bar, The Food Village, Yam Yam To Go and Bar Des Voyageurs for full service dining.
To escape the hustle and bustle of the terminal, head to the Luton Reed Aviation Lounge for some peace and quiet before you fly, and relax in a calming environment whilst enjoying complimentary snacks and drinks, TV and internet access.
