London Luton Airport (previously called Luton International Airport is an international airport located 2.8 km east of the town centre in the Borough of Luton in Bedfordshire, England and is 56.5 km north of Central London. It is the fourth largest airport serving the London area after Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted, and is one of London's five international airports along with London City Airport.
The airport is 3.2 km from Junction 10a of the M1 motorway.
The airport possesses a single runway, running roughly east to west, with a length of 2,160 m. The runway is equipped with an Instrument Landing System, allowing the airport to continue operating in conditions of poor visibility.
All the airport facilities lie to the north of the runway.
The terminal and aprons have a somewhat unusual layout, with ground-side access to the terminal being via a road (which goes under the taxiway) to a bus station, drop off area, taxi rank and short term car park on the runway side of the terminal building.

There is a short stay car park adjacent to the terminal, together with medium and long term on airport car parks to the west and east of the terminal respectively and linked to the terminal by shuttle buses.
Pre-booked off airport parking is also available from several independent operators.
