IMG_5747 (1)London Luton Airport announced plans to introduce the Luton Airport Express, a new train service to the airport.

The airport, working with the Dutch transport company Abellio, which is owned by Nederlandse Spoorwegen, the Dutch national rail operator, will introduce the service by the end of 2020. Abellio, which will operate the East Midlands Railway for the next eight years, will invest over £600 million in improvements to rail service across the East Midlands.

The new express train will run every 30 minutes from the St. Pancras International railway station in London to the airport.  St. Pancras is in the London borough of Camden and it shares a tube station called King’s Cross St. Pancras with the nearby King’s Cross railway station. The two stations are separated by a pedestrian area and road.

“Once the developments are completed, passengers will be able to reach the airport terminal in a little under half an hour from central London,” said Alberto Martin, the airport’s CEO.

St. Pancras is the terminus for the Eurostar train, with service to and from Paris Gare du Nord.
