History
An airport was built at the site in 1938. During World War II it was used for Royal Air Force fighter aircraft. After the war, it was returned to the local council who kept it as an airport for commercial operation. Percival Aircraft had its factory on the site until the early 1960s. In the 1960s, executive aircraft were based at the airport and later became an operating base for charter airlines such as Autair (Court Line), Euravia (Thomson Airways), Dan-Air, and Monarch Airlines. Court Line later became bankrupt in 1974.

In 1985, a new terminal was built and in 1990, the airport was named London Luton Airport. In 1997, the council issued a 30 year concession contract to London Luton Airport Operations Limited to fund an extension of the airport. In 1999, a terminal made of aluminium and glass based on an original design by Foster and Partners was built which included 60 check-in desks, baggage, flight information systems, and a wide range of shops, resturants, and bars. In 2005, London Luton Airport Operations Limited was acquired by Airport Concessions Development Limited.
