Stansted Airport saw over 1.15 million passengers pass through the terminal in January 2014 – an increase of 7.2% over the same month last year.
The overall number of passengers using Stansted in the year ending January 2014 was 17.92 million, an increase of 2.6% over the previous 12 months.
Andrew Harrison, Stansted’s Managing Director, said:
“The increased number of passengers using Stansted this January compared to last year is a good start to 2014 and a signal of the airport’s future potential.
“Our £80 million terminal transformation project continues at great pace with customers already enjoying improvements to the security area of the terminal with even more changes to come. We are also set to welcome a host of new routes to our network in the coming weeks and months that will offer passengers even greater choice of destinations from Stansted.
“The aviation market in the south-east has never been as competitive as it is right now, and to sustain long-term growth we will need to exceed the expectations of our existing carriers and fight hard to win new business and passengers.”
