London Stansted Airport is the fourth busiest airport in the UK carrying over 21 million passengers a year. As well as a key enabler of growth and jobs in the local community we help to connect business and leisure passengers to over 170 destinations across 32 countries.

In addition to being an economic catalyst for the East of England, we strive to be a responsible neighbour and that means operating in a sustainable way, both by sharing the benefits of living near an airport and limiting any environmental impacts that may be felt as a result of our operation.

We continue to look for ways in which we can manage and reduce the number of local people affected by noise as a result of our operations and we are delighted that we have been able to work in partnership with the community, airlines and industry bodies to introduce new and exciting innovations in aviation technology.

Together with the Stansted Airport Consultative Committee’s Environmental Issues Group, over the last two years we have conducted an airspace trial at Stansted that we feel demonstrates significant and positive improvements for the local area. The results of the trial are shared in these consultation documents and we want to hear the views from members of our local communities.
