Our plan is to:
  • Provide more flights to more places by making best use of our runway
  • Invest in new facilities to improve the passenger experience
  • Unlock economic growth and create more local jobs and apprenticeships
  • Operate in a cleaner, quieter and smarter way
  • Maintain our number one position for public transport usage
  • Ensure the local community and businesses benefit from our success

In our 2015 Sustainable Development Plan, we laid out plans to make the full and efficient use of the capacity on our existing single runway. We consulted publicly on this plan, the final version of which is available to view at www.stanstedairport.com/developmentplan

Stansted is one of the most important airports in the country. We have the best European network in the UK, serving more than 40 countries and 190 destinations and are the third biggest cargo airport connecting local businesses with the global marketplace. Our vision is to make best use of our runway in the most sustainable and responsible way, maximising the benefits for everyone.

This is all part of the plan for Stansted and the future of the region, providing long term certainty for the local community, our airlines and business partners. You can help create more choices for passengers, attract new businesses and opportunities and provide great career chances for our young people by telling us what you think about our plans.
