Stansted’s GBP80 million transformation has continued with the opening of a new security area.
The area has been relocated away from the central location to another that is twice the size and has more natural light.
It is the first phase of the terminal redevelopment and will be fully operational by Christmas. “Stansted Airport’s terminal transformation project is really beginning to take shape and promises to be an important step towards Stansted’s ultimate goal of becoming the best airport in London,” said Stansted’s transformation director Martin Lyall.
“Our passengers have told us they want to get through security as quickly and safely as possible and we believe the additional space, easier access and improved way-finding in a great new location flooded with natural light is a real step change that will get passengers through security more quickly and efficiently,” he added.
Early next year work will start on a new departure lounge with the full project to be finished in 2015.
