Luton Airport Departures Overview


Check-in is on the ground floor of the terminal. You should check with your airline how early you need to arrive. Luton airport advises getting there at least two hours before your flight, and we’d second this, particularly as there are sometimes problems with traffic congestion as you approach the terminal.

Baggage allowance

Passengers flying from Luton airport are only allowed one item of hand luggage, except those flying with El Al, who are allowed two pieces. The maximum size varies depending on your airline, so check with them.

Large electrical items like laptops and hairdryers need to be taken out of your hand baggage and screened separately. A laptop in its case would count as one item of hand baggage. Liquids, pastes and gels can only be carried in hand luggage if they are in containers of 100ml or less; they must go in the hold if the container is bigger than that. Liquids must be taken out of your hand luggage and carried through security separately in a clear, resealable plastic bag.

For more information, see our Luton airport luggage and security page.
