Recent growth

Nearly 22 million passengers have passed through Stansted Airport during the past year, flying to more than 150 destinations throughout 34 countries. A lot of the airport’s recent growth – Stansted is currently Europe’s fastest-growing airport - has been down to the success of the 'low-cost' airline. Easyjet, Ryanair and Flyglobespan all operate flights from the Stansted Airport, serving a huge range of destinations throughout Europe and the UK. The opening up of the EU in May 2004 has also contributed to Stansted’s surge in popularity - with an increase in the number of destinations in Eastern Europe.

Increasingly, more long-haul routes are expected to operate from Stansted. In November 2005, the newly-formed airline Maxjet started a low-cost business route to New York’s JFK airport. They will be in competition with the luxury carrier Eos who began their transatlantic service the previous month.

One of the most popular destinations from this airport is flights to Malaga Airport on the Costa del Sol which is currently undergoing expansion plans due for completion in April 2010.

The future

In 2003 the government published its plans for air travel over the next half a century. They identified Stansted has the location for the South-East’s first new runway in 50 years. BAA, who operates the airport, expects to make an application for permission to build the runway in 2007. Although this application will probably be subject to a public enquiry, BAA hopes to have the new runway in operation by 2013.
