About Stansted Airport 

London Stansted Airport (STN) is an international airport, located in Stansted Mountfitchet, approximately 40 miles away from central London. The airport serves as a base for more than 15 different airlines, flying to over 160 destinations across Europe, Asia, and Africa. STN is used as a base by many low-cost airlines, particularly easyJet,, and Ryanair, with the latter flying to more than 140 locations from Stansted. It’s currently the fourth-busiest airport in the United Kingdom, after Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester.

The airport currently has one terminal building, which is divided into three sections, while the gates are subdivided between Satellite 1, Satellite 2, and Satellite 3. An additional building, known as the Advanced Passenger Vehicle building, was brought into use in 2015, to help the airport cope with the increasing number of flights departing early in the morning. The airport’s last major redevelopment programme was launched in 2013, with the aim of upgrading the terminal building by relocating the security area, doubling the amount of available seating, and improving the information displays. This in effect created a new Departures Lounge, with a food court and shopping facilities, however drew heavy criticism as it lengthened the time required to walk to the departure gates.
