Stansted Airport submits plans for new £130m arrivals terminal

London Stansted Airport has submitted plans for a £130m arrivals terminal.

The scheme, which would be the latest phase of the airport’s multi-million-pound investment plan, would see construction of a 34,000 sq m terminal building.

Stansted expects the project to take three years once it has received planning approval.

Plans for the terminal include a larger immigration and baggage reclaim area, new retail facilities and a public forecourt for inbound travellers.

The scheme will also allow the existing terminal building to be redeveloped and dedicated entirely to departing passengers.

Stansted’s current terminal building is said to be the busiest in the UK, with 5,000 departing passengers travelling through it every hour.

Stansted Airport chief executive Andrew Cowan said: “The planning application and concept design for the new £130m arrivals building marks the latest phase in Stansted’s transformation and enables us to support further growth over the next decade and give our passengers the facilities that they want.”
