The airport was opened on 16th July 1938. During the Second World War, the Royal Air Force used the airport as a base for fighter aircraft. After the war the city of Luton again acquired the airport. In 1972, Luton was one of the most profitable airports in England. However, when the tour operator Clarksons (Court Line) went bankrupt in 1974, the airport suffered a serious setback.
After the airport had been refurbished for 15 years, a new international terminal was opened in 1985. In 1991, the airport was renamed and has since then been known as London Luton Airport. On 1st July 1995, a new departure hall was added and then in 1999 another terminal was opened. On 6th July 2007, the airport management decided to build a new runway as well as a new terminal building.
