Airport Transfers

Airport transfers

At London Stansted we do our best to make your transfer trouble-free, but please help us by allowing plenty of time between your connecting flights, especially if your baggage has not been checked through to your final destination. If you arrive at London Stansted on an international flight you will need to pass through passport control/immigration, whether your connecting flight is domestic or international. You will therefore need the correct documentation for entry into Britain. If you are connecting from a UK flight to an international flight you will need to pass through special immigration control points where you may be asked to show your passport.

Stopping over

If you're stopping over between connecting flights you'll need to leave the airport via passport control, baggage reclaim and customs, then check in as normal in time for your onward flight. There is nowhere to sleep in the terminal. However, there are hotels next to the airport and plenty more in the surrounding area. Many provide courtesy transport to or from London Stansted Airport. If you need to find somewhere to stay why not book an airport hotel with us.
