MAG STN COLR POS RGB5th June, 2018

Today, alongside confirming support for the development of a third runway at Heathrow, the Government has confirmed, in a statement to Parliament, its support for other UK airports looking to make best use of existing runway capacity. The policy makes clear that Government supports all UK airports making best use of their existing runways.

This follows a consultation last year as part of the Government’s development of a new Aviation Strategy.”

In response to the Government statement, Ken O’Toole, London Stansted CEO, said:

“Ahead of the anticipated decision from Uttlesford District Council relating to our application to increase the airport’s limit on passenger numbers to 43 million per year, we welcome today’s statement from Government confirming its support for airports looking to make best use of existing capacity. 

“It is vital for the UK economy that the country has the best possible aviation connections and that there is an urgent need to actively support airports, like London Stansted, that can deliver that access now. 

“Over the last five years we have increased passenger numbers by nearly 10 million, doubled the number of airlines and secured six new services to the most popular destinations for passengers from the region including Dubai, New York, Boston, Toronto and Washington. 

“Building on these successes, we are investing £600 million to improve the airport experience and have submitted a planning application to make best use of our single runway. This will unlock Stansted potential and enable us to serve up to 43 million passengers, deliver 50 percent of London’s expected passenger growth over the next decade and extend the choice of airlines and destinations we serve.”

190716On one of the hottest days of the year, SACC Members and Guests got together to enjoy the heatwave, network and share experiences of this year's Check-in @ Stansted Business Exhibition brought to you by the Stansted Airport Chamber of Commerce which was held back in June.  Quite a contrast on the weather front, with the exhibition date itself suffering from torrential rain and storms!

It was good to welcome some new faces to the event including Fiona Henry from the Cannon Ball Run Europe, Stephen Hanks from Blue Dragon Cars, Pri Bamford from Nurture Pensions, Steve Clayden from airport based Swissport, Lottie and Joanna from IWM Events as well as Jamie and his colleagues from Taylor Milburn just to mention a few.  We are hoping to welcome them as SACC Members really soon!

Julie Budden, Chair SACC said:

"A lot of hard work is put into organising events and it was a delight to see so many people come along to support the BBQ. Having the sunshine was a real bonus! Mike Shields and his team did us proud once again with tasty food, chilled wine and beer - a perfect end to the day!".

Julie went on to say:

"It was great hearing from some of the exhibitors how they have secured business from the recent Check-in @ Stansted - this makes it all worthwhile".

Mike Shields, owner of the Lion and Lamb said: "It is always a pleasure to host the SACC BBQ, there are some wonderful people within the group and I have made some great contacts over the years. I look forward to seeing them all again soon here at the Lion and Lamb".


We are pleased to advise the date for next year's Check-in @ Stansted Business Exhibition has now been released - Thursday 22 June 2017 back at the Diamond Hangar! So get the date in your diary!
