I was told by a member of staff at Luton airport during an emergency redirect of my daughter's flight from Heathrow during heavy snow that children (Unaccompanied minors - UMs) cannot normally fly out of Luton. But I don't know if the staff member was speaking for the airport as a whole, or for their specific airline. Nothing on the Airport website, search or FAQs. The airline I want to use does allow them to fly alone at her age. No mention of Luton in their FAQ either.

Normally UMs flight is an airline's policy and responsibility. Not sure how an airport plays into this at all. – Karlson Jul 12 '12 at 21:03

I checked london-lutons FAQ's the closest I could find was special-asistance / wheelchairs where they recommend you contact your carrier.
