Luton Airport Express launches with £10 fares

Business travellers can now reach London Luton Airport from central London in just over 30 minutes for as little as £10 on the new Luton Airport Express. 

The non-stop rail service, operated by East Midlands Railway, runs from London St Pancras to Luton Airport Parkway where passengers can now use the brand-new Luton DART shuttle to the terminal.

Luton Airport Express trains depart every 30 minutes, from early morning to late at night Monday to Saturday, with less regular services on Sundays.

The Luton DART runs 24 hours a day and takes customers from the train station to the airport terminal, meaning an overall journey time to or from Central London of 32 minutes. 

Simon Pready, Commercial Director of East Midlands Railway (EMR), said: “EMR’s Luton Airport Express will provide customers travelling from the capital and the south, a convenient, fast and environmentally friendly way to get to the airport – with a trip taking as little as 32 minutes and costing from as little as £10 – it’s a great option.

“Along with the introduction of DART, the Luton Airport Express represents the beginning of an exciting new chapter for the town and we are proud to be part of such an environmentally and economically important project.”
