About Us

London Stansted Airport & MAG Group

In February 2013, Manchester Airport Group (MAG) acquired London Stansted Airport, with ownership and operations handed over in a seamless process, ensuring staff and passengers could take advantage of the airport facilities as usual.

Find out here about the exciting plans in development in this new phase of growth which will see the airport develop in several key areas. 

Airport Improvements

The acquisition of London Stansted Airport by MAG has seen a renewed period of investment into improving many aspects of the customer journey. A total of £80 million pounds has been placed into improvement works of the main airport terminal, with the coming months and years seeing an exciting period of transformation of retail and passenger facilities amongst many other intriguing developments. 

Doing Business With Us

There are ample opportunities in which to promote your business with us at Stansted Airport. Take advantage of our status as the third busiest airport in London, serving over 18 million passengers a year, with the purchase of property and retail space or airport advertising, alongside the chance to make us your base for new airline operations.  


Acting as a gateway to the UK transport and road networks, London Stansted Airport's 24/7 cargo operation connects with the Greater London area and the Midlands, ensuring cargo operators a next level service which delivers 365 days a year. 


Stansted's plans for improvement under new MAG ownership include extensive improvements to the current main terminal, although the outline for development includes a vision to provide the region with a choice of new routes to destinations such as USA and the Middle East.

The aim of striking a balance between environmental impact and tapping into the economic growth of the area as a whole is the reason for a development outline for capitalising on ever increasing passenger numbers, providing a customer journey to savour in the coming years.
