New direct rail link between Luton Airport and London

A new train route connecting Luton Airport and central London is to launch this northern hemisphere summer, taking just 30 minutes to get passengers to the terminal.

This is good news for travellers flying with low-cost carriers, with the airport operating flights with Ryanair, EasyJet and Wizz Air, Travel Mole reports.

Taking a London airport taxi from Luton airport to the downtown area of London is currently the most convenient transfer option. The ride costs approximately 80€ (£70) and takes around 1 hour and 15 minutes

Trains do not currently run from Luton airport to the centre of London. To reach the train, you will first have to take a 10-minute shuttle bus from the terminal to Luton Airport Parkway - inconvenient for those with luggage.

The new route - set to open from May - will be a faster, non-stop option. It will run between 6am and 10pm every half an hour on weekdays. It will also link with Corby in Northamptonshire

Eeast Midland Railways managing director Will Rogers said that the new route will offer "more seats, quicker journeys and a simpler and more resilient timetable".

Other London airports already have fast routes, include the Gatwick Express, Stansted Express and the Heathrow Express.
