London Luton Airport expands retail and F&B offering

London Luton Airport (LLA) in the UK has opened eight new retail stores as part of its £160m (US$220m) redevelopment program.

This includes Oliver Bonas’s first ever airport store, as well as Kurt Geiger, Ted Baker, Rituals and Fiorelli. The new retail openings, along with the wider transformation, will offer passengers an enhanced experience as they travel through the airport.

Passengers can also enjoy a wider range of food and beverage (F&B) outlets. Dubl, a premium wine bar specializing in sparkling wines, opened in February. Oriel Brasserie, serving French-inspired dishes, is set to open in the coming months. More retail openings, including luxury brands Hugo Boss and Chanel, will also be arriving soon.

The openings mark the latest stage in the airport’s transformation, with the newly-extended terminal opening later this year. As well as being able to choose from a greater variety of shops and restaurants, passengers will have access to more seating and eight new boarding gates.

Work has also begun on a mass passenger transit (MPT) system, which is being delivered by Luton Borough Council. The MPT will connect Luton Airport Parkway (LAP) station with the terminal, operating 24 hours a day. Once complete, it will reduce the journey time between central London and the airport to just 30 minutes.

Nick Barton, CEO of LLA, said, “We’re delighted to be able to offer people a new and improved choice of shops and restaurants when they travel with us. The fact that so many prominent retailers have chosen to open stores at LLA is further evidence of our transformation into a world-class international airport.”
