New 'Meet And Greet' Service To Open At Stansted

03 Jun 2013

Stansted Airport will open a new ‘Meet and Greet’ parking service next month, a premium service for budget conscious travellers costing as little as £7.30 a day.  The new service, which opens for business on 1st July 2013 in time for the busy summer season, can be pre-booked online now at www.stanstedairport.com/parking.

‘Meet and Greet’ is an affordable luxury for smaller budgets, located in the Short Stay Car Park, only a  short walk from the terminal building and is ideal for passengers who want to leave cars close to the terminal, don’t want a premium Valet service on the forecourt and want to avoid charges for parking in Short Stay while they’re away.  

Customers also have the reassurance that vehicles are only moved a short distance to a secure area within the airport until their return.

Speaking about the new ‘Meet and Greet’ option for Stansted Airport customers, Head of Travel Services Kevin Day said:

“Under our new ownership there is a real focus on transforming the passenger experience and this new ‘Meet and Greet’ service not only gives our car park customers another option but is a premium style product at an affordable price.  

“Valet Parking has always been very popular here but customer feedback tells us that there is demand for a service that sits between premium Valet and standard Short Stay that balances the convenience of both those options at a competitive price.  We hope that the new ‘Meet and Greet’ service fills that gap and I’m looking forward to welcoming our first customers next month.”

Stansted Airport now offer five different parking options for passengers looking to leave cars at the airport whilst away, all of which can be pre-booked online for the cheapest rates.  Drop off arrangements for each are as follows:


Option Where to leave car Distance to terminal
Valet Main forecourt Direct access to terminal
Meet and Greet Short Stay car park - dedicated area Short walk to terminal
Short Stay Any Short Stay car park zone Short walk to terminal
Mid Stay Any Mid-Stay car park zone Courtesy shuttle (5 mins)
Long Stay Any Long-Stay car park zone Courtesy shuttle (10-15 mins)
