Airport Parking at Luton
So London Luton Airport (LTN) is your launchpad for your next weekend break, family holiday or business trip?
And you need to find the latest information on LTN airport parking?
If you’re nodding your head, you’ll be relieved to know that you’re in exactly the right place. You’ll find everything you need to know about parking safely, securely and conveniently right here, as well as lots of useful info about LTN facilities and amenities.
But if you’re not a local (and have the time) you might want to sample the delights of Luton itself before you head to sunnier (or snowier) climes. With fast and easy road access to London, this Bedfordshire town is a popular place to live, but it’s an entity in its own right with lots to offer. Famous for hat making, its local football team and as the home of Vauxhall cars, Luton plays a proud part in Britain’s industrial and sporting heritage. Awesome things to do here include strolling around the lush, 100-acre Stockwood Park, discovering the Mossman Collection of stunningly well-preserved horse-drawn vehicles, marvelling at the Gothic grandeur of St Mary’s church and hanging out with cheetahs, lions, rhinos and elephants at Whipsnade Zoo. Meanwhile, Woodside Animal Farm is always popular with families, Haddington Hill at Dunstable Downs is the loftiest point in the East of England and Shaw’s Corner (10 miles out of town) is the perfect pilgrimage for literature
But enough Luton trumpet blowing – let’s get on to that LTN airport parking!
Find the best deals at London Luton Airport
London Luton Airport is a bit of a parking paradise, with on- and offsite, park & ride and meet & great options all on offer for a reasonable price. Pre-booking is always safest and if you’re prepared in advance, the entire process is simple and smooth.
And ample parking is only one (albeit super-important) part of Luton Airport’s fascinating heritage. The genesis of LTN was way back in 1938 when the local authority owned the land, which was soon taken over during World War Two for fighter squadrons to use. In the post-war years, the airport was used for civilian flights, but this was minimal until the 60s and 70s, when it became the hub of choice for Brittania Airways and a centre for Monarch and Courtline (the airline for package holiday form Clarksons). By the 90s, Easyjet was flying from Luton and because it has traded on offering cheaper flights than many of its competitors, it’s the savvy choice for thrifty travellers from all over the UK.

So what’s the best way to suss out your perfect LTN car park space?
It really all boils down to your needs and personal preferences. For instance, if you’re a business traveller with a tight schedule or a family with young kids or elderly relatives, you’ll probably want to park as close to the terminal as possible. But if you’re jetting off with your rugby club mates for a continental tour, you might not mind parking a little further out and enjoying the banter as you stroll into check-in.
