Stansted Airport has unveiled a new campaign to promote its route network amongst local markets.
The airport is boasting its 150 direct scheduled connections into Europe throughout the promotion, which will run across Essx, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and parts of London.
Recent new routes at the airport include Ryanair’s services to France and Morocco while flights to Switzerland, Romania, Croatia, Czech Republic, Sweden and Montenegro will come online soon.
In addition Loganair has announced flights from the airport to Dundee, while Atlantic Airways will offer services to the Faroe Islands.
“Stansted has been one of London’s best kept secrets for too long now, and it’s time we told passengers what they’re missing out on.The airport has an unrivalled network of European destinations and is the south-east’s most punctual major airport so our ‘Fly Stansted’ campaign is designed to drive home the message that we really are the European airport for London – both in terms of choice and on-time performance,” said the airport’s managing director Andrew Harrison.
Stansted is clawing back the passengers it has lost in the last few years but still only carries 12 million of the 46 million journeys made each year by those living near the airport.
“We’re already making really good progress in cutting through the myths that have surrounded Stansted in the past and I’m sure our ‘Fly Stansted’ campaign will boost awareness of what’s on offer at the airport,” added Harrison.
