We’re mad about airports. That might be a bit obvious, but, let’s face it, how else can you get away on holidays without travelling through some of the many lovely airports across the country. Flights from Luton Airport are great value and offer so much choice. Firstly, from there you can go direct to destinations all Europe and parts of the Middle East and China, or catch a connection along to way that will literally take you anywhere. Luton proudly says they fly to over 90 destinations across three continents. We think it’s hard to top that!

Luton Airport’s Servisair is also a handling agent for Monarch, Ryanair, Thomson, First Choice and Air Europa, so it’s a super handy choice for your next holiday. The celebs are always breezing through; Madonna and Wayne Rooney have both been spotted there in the past year alone. On top of that, they make it easy. We love nothing more than being able to hop through an airport ASAP, so we can really feel like we’re getting our holiday started. They’ve built a handy (and super cool) 3D map, there’s wifi there if you need to update your Facebook before you go, and of course there are tones of shops so you can stock up on the essentials before you hit the skies.

So with a lovely airport like Luton just over the road, where should you go to? We’ve been having a think about it and figured out some of our top choices from Luton this year.

Flights from Luton to Sharm, Egypt

Sharm el Sheikh is one of the most popular resorts in Egypt, possibly even the world! It is home to some of the best diving you’ll ever experience, with stunning reefs at Ras Mohammed and Tiran. It’s also right on the Sinai Peninsula, at the edge of a major mountain range. This duo of mountains and sea offer views you will never forget. An evening out at Naama Bay is a must, while horse riding, quad bikes and even a camel trek will make your holiday unforgettable.

Flights from Luton to Heraklion, Crete

Holidays in Greece are a great choice this year. There’s a big push on getting tourists in, so prices are lower than ever, while the warm welcome and fantastic weather means it’s a sunny home away from home! One of the biggest cities on the southern island of Crete, Heraklion is just a few hours away from Luton. If your idea of fun is a week in the sun by the pool, with a sprinkling of museums, fantastic food and drink and gorgeous views, then what are you waiting for? Heraklion is certainly the place to go.

Flights from Luton to Pisa, Italy

Are you something of a photography buff? How about creating one of your own mind bending pictures, where it looks like you’re holding up the famous leaning tower? Pisa is a stunning Italian city, a weekend there is just perfect. Not only is it home to the world famous leaning tower, but there’s plenty more besides. Start with a stroll through the streets, enjoy some pasta on a piazza and maybe take a quick train trip to the nearby city of Florence. A weekend away just got a whole lot better!

Flights from Luton to Enfidha, Tunisia

About three hours from Luton Airport, you’ll find the historic land of Tunisia with its glorious sunshine, endless miles of sandy beaches, and fantastic value. Tunisia’s becoming more and more popular with people all over the world. The whole area of Enfidha at the Gulf of Hammamet is home to an ultimate holiday experience. Think marinas, golf courses and tones of hotels. There are soft sandy beaches, with warm tropical waters, and more the history of the area is just breathtaking. The nearby mosques and ancient ruins really make you feel like you’re getting away from it all.
