17 Oct Stansted Airport has set out its growth strategy for the next decade
London Stansted Airport has set out revised proposals that show how its growth over the next decade can be achieved without increasing either the number of flights that are currently permitted to operate each year or the size of the airport’s approved noise ‘footprint’.
Ken O’Toole, Chief Executive of London Stansted Airport, said:
“The feedback we received from our neighbours during our extensive consultation was clear – that they support the ongoing growth and investment in the airport and welcome a further increase in destinations and choice.”
Currently, around 26 million passengers use Stansted each year – an increase of nearly 10 million passengers compared with five years ago.
London Stansted Airport has advised Uttlesford District Council of these changes in relation to its future planning application. Prior to the submission of a final planning application in early 2018 the airport will organise further feedback sessions in November 2017.
