HEADLINE: Luton Airport owners LLAL want to double capacity yet again
Luton Borough Council’s subsidiary LLAL which owns the airport is consulting on its plans to double capacity yet again from 18 to 36 million passengers and 240,000 flights a year – see LADACAN’s thoughts on this “sham” consultation.
>> Luton Airport further growth
Why is there so much more aircraft noise from Luton Airport these days?
Luton Airport is getting busier far more quickly than we were told it would when Luton Borough Council gave it permission to double its capacity. Why? Because the Council’s airport holding company LLAL incentivised rapid growth by discounting the concession fee payable to operate the airport.

Who are we and what do we do?
LADACAN stands for the Luton And District Association for the Control of Aircraft Noise. We are members of the Airport’s Consultative Committee and we fight against aircraft noise and further expansion of Luton Airport, given that its planes overfly so many rural towns and villages as well as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

LADACAN fully supports the creation of an independent aircraft noise regulator and new legislation compelling airports to reduce noise by forcing airlines to fly quieter planes, by banning the noisiest aircraft, and by restricting night flights. We have co-signed a strong statement by the Aviation Communities Forum >> ACF statement
LADACAN submitted a report to the CAA RNAV Post-Implementation Review process which highlights the issues with flight concentration >> Runway 26 RNAV PIR
