 Stansted Airport Feedback

Following feedback at the consultation events in July 2017, we’ve listened to the local community and adapted our proposals. Growth at the airport over the next decade can be met without increasing the agreed number of flights or the size of the airport’s environmental ‘footprint’. Making best use of our runway to serve 43 million passengers will help create more choice and better terminal facilities, new jobs for local people, clarity for the local community while providing airlines and businesses with the confidence to invest in Stansted. To find out more please see overleaf, or visit one of our feedback events:

Tuesday 21st November 2017, 4pm until 8pm Radisson Blu, Waltham Close, Stansted Airport, CM24 1PP Free parking for this session is available at the hotel,  on registering at the event.

Thursday 23rd November 2017, 4pm until 8pm St Michael’s Church, 1 Windhill,  Bishop’s Stortford, CM23 2ND

Friday 1st December 2017,  4pm until 8pm Talberd Room, Foakes Hall, Stortford Road,  Great Dunmow, CM6 1DG

We’ve listened to your feedback and adapted our proposals, so growth can  be met within the current cap on the number of aircraft movements. Ken O’Toole, Stansted Airport

DROPPING OFF FOR FREE At the consultation, there was some confusion about our drop off facilities. Many people were unaware that you can park for up to one hour in the mid stay car park for free. Whether you are helping someone reach the terminal, or awaiting family and friends, the mid stay car park is the free alternative for dropping off at Stansted.
IMPROVING THE LOCAL TRANSPORT NETWORK We appreciate community frustration that local roads and trains are busy, particularly at peak times, and we are working with the highways authorities on solutions. Our plans focus on making best use of our single runway and encouraging more passengers to use public transport, particularly when new longer trains arrive in 2019. We remain committed to ensuring over half of our passengers travel to / from the airport by public transport and will continue to financially support local bus routes. We will also continue to champion improvements to Junction 8 of the M11 and  A120 and faster and more reliable rail  services to London and Cambridge.
MANAGING NOISE AND  THE ENVIRONMENT We’ve listened carefully to feedback about extra noise from more flights and understand the concerns this brings to some affected communities. As a result we’ve decided to adapt our proposals so growth will be delivered within our existing flight limits. This results in growth in passengers to 43 million passengers a year. We will remain within our environmental limits. With new aircraft technology, planes are getting quieter and greener and can also fly closer  to designated routes, helping to reduce the number of people impacted by air travel.
JOBS, APPRENTICESHIPS  AND INVESTMENT Over 50% of local people said jobs were very important and we should offer more career opportunities for young people. We couldn’t  agree more! With 12,000 employees on-site we already play a crucial role in providing jobs and  apprenticeships. To improve our offer we’ve teamed up with Harlow College and Essex County Council to build the UK’s first airport technical college. It will specialise in science, technology and maths, helping us to create the engineers of the future. Find our more at
OFFERING FLIGHTS TO  MORE DESTINATIONS Many people told us Stansted was their airport of choice and they wanted us to offer more destinations across the world. We agree! In the last 12 months, we have secured 8 new airlines, including Jet2 and BMi and now serve  190 destinations. From next April we’ll be flying even further with Primera Air offering New York,  Boston and Toronto, enabling us to offer more choice from your local airport.
RESIDENTS DISCOUNT CARD As part of our work with our independent Consultative Committee, we have an agreed discount scheme for local people to drop off outside the airport. If you live within 10 miles of the airport you will pay just £1 to drop off. Residents living within 5 miles of the airport get a further discount to just 50p. Visit  for more information
