Airport bosses want to double the current number of passengers to 18 million, with the possibility of growth to 30 million in the future, using the existing runway.

London Luton Airport Limited, which runs the airport on behalf of Luton Borough Council, says the growth would create 6,000 new jobs at the airport, but anti-noise campaigners have voiced concerns about the increase in passenger numbers.

Concerns have also been raised about how the roads leading up to the airport would cope with an increase in traffic.
