 Stansted’s vision to expand doubling passengers and raising the regional economy



Stansted Airport has released a report of a plan to double the passenger numbers to 45million a year hoping to generate billions of pounds, improving the economy of the region. According to a public consultation launched in this week, the plans will involve developing the existing runway.

This comes after the chairman of the Airports Commission; Sir Howard Davies rejected the plans for ‘Boris Island’ which had also been supported by Saffron Walden’s MP Sir Allan Haselhurst. The airport aims to increase their flights and also bring in new routes. This plan is envisaged to drive growth reaching the planned targets.

The business is owned by Manchester Airport Group and serves over 18 million passengers in a year and it targets to serve 45 million passengers per year on the single runway. Currently, the present capacity can support 10,000 extra onsite jobs and can generate an additional £4.6billion according to Stansted.

This plan will help in giving recommendations to the government regarding how the airport’s existing capacity will meet the demands in the next 10 to 15 years coming. The airport says the plan establishes a framework for ‘responsible and sustainable growth’ and it is currently open for the public consultations. Anyone interested about this plan is encouraged to visit their exhibitions to hear more about the plans and also give their views.

The managing director at Stansted, Andrew Harrison, believes that the airport has a potential for sustainable growth which will be of great value to the economy of the UK as it is also working towards developing its global connectivity to support development activities such as trade.

The public exhibitions will be held in The Swan, Thaxted, Town Hall, Saffron Walden, Silver Jubilee Hall, Takeley and StanstedMountfitchet.
