Luton Airport Arrivals Information

Luton Airport has one main terminal which handles a small group of airlines. A selection of car hire companies are located in the terminal as you come through the walkway. Rail and bus tickets can also be purchased here and taxi stands are located at the front of the terminal building.

The Luton DART (Direct Air-Rail Transit) is like a breath of fresh air for travelers heading to or from London Luton Airport. Instead of the old bus service, it's a shiny new way to get around.

This nifty shuttle covers a short distance of just 2.3 kilometers, zipping you from Luton Airport Parkway to the main airport terminal. What's really cool is that it's completely automated and runs on electricity. Plus, it's super speedy – you'll be at the terminal entrance in less than four minutes.

The best part? The Luton DART seamlessly connects you between the train services at Luton Airport Parkway and the airport terminal. It's a hassle-free and reliable way to travel.

What are some of the changes to arrivals due to Brexit?

As Brexit has officially taken place now and the UK is no longer part of the EU, you will notice some changes when you arrive at the airport. Some of these changes include:

  • Removal of the EU lane, which will now be replaced with “goods to declare” or "nothing to declare"
  • If you're an EU citizen, you will still be asked to have your ID checked like before and might also be asked about the purpose of your journey.
  • If you're an EU citizen not living in the UK, you could now be required to have a “permitted paid engagement” visa if you're coming to the UK for work reasons

Please note that, though these are some of the changes, we recommend that you always check the rules before booking as they could be ever-changing.
