LUTON AIRPORT”S new departure lounge, apron extension and boarding gates were officially opened by minister for transport Alistair Darling last week. Part of a ”35m investment, the new first floor departures lounge is most impressive, well lit and overlooks an apron, the single runway in the far background. With what must be a first for Luton the lounge is approached via twin escalators, followed by the usual security areas. Amongst the food offerings is Costa, Est Bar Est, a bar serving antipasti platters, plus a full service restaurant. Millie”s Cookies sells what it is named after, whilst Pr”t a Manger has its normal product range, as does Starbucks. The Juice & Bagels Store says it all with its name and The Real Food Company has counters for hot food, deli, bakery, grab and go and hot and cold drinks. There is also a whole series of shops offering just about everything you forgot to pack for your holiday. Most of the food outlets are open from 0500 to 2200, the shops until 2100.
