Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all regular services and hours may be subject to change. Thus, if the idea is to spend the night in the public area, consider a plan B in case the stay inside the airport is only allowed for those who are close to boarding.
Spending the night at the airport
At Luton airport there is a lot of movement even during the night, so it is recommended to have headphones or earplugs. In addition, have a sleeping bag or blankets, as the place is pretty cold.
Where to rest: The best spot is the Arrivals Hall, with some comfortable benches. However, you may have a hard time finding a free one, as, generally, the airport has very few seats. You can also find sofas next to gates 5-6. Another option (by paying or with a credit card that provides the service) is to enter the VIP lounge of the boarding area, although it closes at night. On the other hand, there are several cheap hotels in the surroundings.
Baggage: In the public area you will find a left-luggage office that lets you store your bags 24 hours a day.
Eating and drinking: There are options open during the night only in the public area.
Restrooms: Showers available in the airport's VIP lounge.
Wi-Fi: Free for 4 hours.
Other services available around the clock: ATMs, currency exchange bureaus, baby changing facilities, prayer room, children's play area, duty-free store.
