Luton 19mppa Consultation

Our Proposals

Our proposals to increase passenger capacity will involve the submission of a planning application to Luton Council.

This application will seek to vary existing conditions attached to the planning permission which granted consent in 2012 for the airport to operate up to 18mppa. We are seeking to vary the following conditions:

Condition 8

We are proposing to modify the wording of Condition 8 to allow the airport to continue to operate and expand viably within a cap (or limit) of 19mppa. Growth in passenger numbers to 19mppa will result in an increase in the number of daytime flights on peak days but will not increase the number of night-time flights. There is sufficient capacity in the airspace system to accommodate the increase to 19mppa and therefore changes to flight paths are not required.

Condition 10

We are proposing to modify the wording of Condition 10 to amend the day and night noise contour until the end of 2027, when it is envisaged that newer and quieter aircraft would allow us to operate within the existing requirements. This modification will enable the airport to grow in tandem with the introduction of quieter aircraft. In the period until the end of 2027, this would increase the area for the daytime contour from 19.4 sq km to 21.6 sq km and the area for the night-time contour from 37.2 sq km to 42.9 sq km.

Condition 22

We are proposing to modify the wording of Condition 22 to allow car parking areas for up to 19mppa to be managed in accordance with an updated Car Park Management Plan.

Condition 24

We are proposing to modify the wording of Condition 24 to allow passenger and colleague travel for up to 19mppa to be managed in accordance with a new Travel Plan.

Condition 28

We are proposing to modify the wording of Condition 28 to ensure that passenger throughput above 18mppa is carried out in accordance with the approved plans and details that will accompany the application for planning permission.
