Work has started on a slick and curvaceous Foster and Partners design for Luton Airport. The metal and glass terminal will cost just under £100 million. It will aim to increase passenger flows from 4.2 million a year to 10 million by 2008. Under the curved roof will be 60 check-in desks and 1600m2 of shops and catering space. The consortium financiers, including Barclays Private Equity and engineering firm Bechtel, will lease the airport from the council for

30 years and run it. Completion is due next summer.
