Luton Airport Special Assistance

Luton Airport has a well-thought-out design that's compact, but like most airports, it might require you to do some walking and deal with stairs when you're coming or going. So it's a good idea to plan in advance and book Special Assistance through your airline, tour operator, or travel agent at least 48 hours before your flight. While the Special Assistance team can still help if you haven't booked or do it late, there could be some limits or wait times.

The Special Assistance team is there to support you every step of the way at the airport. That includes helping you with:

  • Getting to and from public transport, like the Luton DART or Luton Airport Express.
  • Navigating to and from your chosen parking area.
  • Carrying your luggage.
  • Guiding you through the check-in and security processes.
  • Assisting you in reaching your aircraft.
  • Making sure you safely get on and off the plane.
  • Helping with your bags when you arrive.

Hidden disabilities

Stickers are available for those travelling with a hidden or non-physical disability to make them identifiable to staff. This will allow staff to recognise that the individual may need additional support, without them having to give details if they don't wish to. These are especially useful for those travelling with someone with autism or dementia for example.

Assistance Dogs

When you get to the airport, head over to our Special Assistance reception desk. Our friendly staff will be there to assist you. You can easily find the Special Assistance reception on the ground side, near the main entrance of the terminal – just follow the signs. If you have a service dog that requires a "Service Animal Spend Area," please don't hesitate to let one of our team members know when you arrive at the Special Assistance reception.

If you need to retain your blue badge for your trip, please speak to the APCOA team to let them know you will be parked in a designated bay.

Advice for those requiring special assistance at airports

To ensure maximum assistance make sure you contact your airline directly or through your travel agent to advise them if you have trouble with walking, need wheelchair assistance or have any special dietary requirements. This will enable any special arrangements at the airport or during the flight, to be made. Passengers are requested to advise staff on check-in of all their requirements.
