12 Sep London Stansted CEO set to outline airport’s plans to serve 43 million passengers a year
London Stansted’s CEO, Ken O’Toole, will today set out how the airport will provide London with the international connectivity required to enable it to continue to grow and prosper over the next decade.
Speaking at the London First Infrastructure Summit 2018, Mr O’Toole will update the audience of 500 infrastructure industry experts on the £600m investment programme currently underway at London Stansted and how that investment will enable the airport to deliver as much as 50 per cent of London’s total expected passenger growth over the next decade.
In addition, he will outline how, if the airport’s current planning application to serve 43 million passengers a year is approved, it will not only grant London Stansted a licence to grow but will also give the green light to continued economic growth for London and the East of England.
Mr O’Toole will also call on Government to match the airport’s growth ambitions with swift and supportive action including; delivering an aviation strategy that sets out a clear plan for maximising the potential of the UK airports most capable of driving economic growth in their regions and for UK PLC; leading the delivery of short-term rail improvements to the London-Stansted-Cambridge line; introducing long overdue reforms to Air Passenger Duty (APD); and committing to increased investment to reduce queue times at the Border for inbound passengers to the UK.
