The £600m Transformation Programme at London Stansted Airport is the airport’s biggest single investment since its inception in 1943. Central to the transformation project is a new £130 million arrivals terminal which is due to open in 2020. The 34,000 sqm building will feature a modular sky-lit roof above the double height space, containing enhanced immigration and baggage reclaim areas, spacious arrivals concourse and welcoming public forecourt.
The existing building will be transformed into a departures-only terminal, freeing up space to create 134 check-in desks plus more seating, shops, bars and restaurants. Stansted are investing £40 million on a brand-new security and baggage delivery system which will be housed beneath the terminal, speeding up the time it takes for bags to travel from check-in to aircraft. The transformation will also bring new airside coaching facilities, 24 aircraft parking stands, taxiway infrastructure and car parking facilities, allowing the airport to accommodate new airlines as it grows.
