Terminal expansion planned at London Stansted
The capital’s third largest airport has announced its intention to submit a planning application for an extension to its existing terminal building.
The proposed scheme will see a three-bay extension to the back of the terminal building. This will provide a more spacious departure lounge for passengers, including new shops, bars and restaurants, state-of-the-art check-in equipment, increased baggage system capacity and an enlarged security hall with additional space for more security lanes fitted with next-generation scanners.
London Stansted has been one of the UK’s fastest recovering airports following the lifting of international travel restrictions last year, serving more than 26 million passengers in the last 12 months.
Gareth Powell, London Stansted’s Managing Director, said: “Our plan to invest in new facilities is great news for our customers, partners, and the region because it will provide additional terminal capacity and a better passenger experience for everyone travelling through London Stansted Airport.
“Our proposal will create a much more spacious and relaxing terminal environment providing space where and when it’s needed, and giving passengers even more choice when it comes to dining and shopping.”
