Overview of £80 Million Investment

Why Change

Modern air travel has significantly altered the way in which passengers use airport terminals, more so at Stansted where 50% of passengers now check-in online, travel with hand luggage only, by-passing traditional check-in procedures and head straight to security. The terminal re-design not only makes better use of space and improves passenger facilities but also helps create the type of experience our passengers demand today while keeping an eye on the future needs.

Why Change

Check-in & Security Search

Air travel has dramatically changed over the last decade or so with most passengers checking in online, using bag drop facilities or heading straight to security if carrying hand luggage only.
