Glad somebody’s finally talking about Luton! Space to expand, already has motorway/rail connections (including to the South of London), is in the right place to be relatively easily reached from the big cities of London and Birmingham (plus those further North) and could be straightforward from Oxford/Cambridge.

Surely the obvious location to replace Heathrow as a hub (if that’s the intention) and it must be less expensive than creating a new island even with improving the current links (high speed rail from St Pancras anyone?). Very few people would plan an airport far from most of Britain and closer to rival hubs in Europe…?
