A direct coach route from the Stadium location in Stratford transports customers to Stansted in as little as 37 minutes, with four Stansted Express trains per hour from nearby Liverpool St adding access for travellers across east London and beyond.
 
Stansted Airport currently serves over 28 million passengers a year and with many low-cost airlines making it their base and as the only London airport with permission to grow, these numbers are forecast to rise as it delivers a major investment programme to increase capacity and transform the passenger experience.
 
London Stadium is one of the world’s most versatile multiuse venues, hosting Premier League football, Major League Baseball, UK Athletics, global renowned artists for concerts and events, plus much more. The Stadium sits in the heart of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the site of the London 2012 Olympic Games and now one of the top destinations in London with over 20 million visitors per year.
 
The collaboration aims to offer unparalleled convenience to travellers, sports and music enthusiasts, establishing both venues as shared gateways to a variety of events and experiences.

Graham Gilmore, CEO of London Stadium, said: “It is a great pleasure to announce this partnership and welcome London Stansted Airport, a nearby major international airport with excellent transport links to our home in Stratford. We have a shared vision to do more, do things differently and do them better, while providing the best possible experiences for our visitors. It is an incredibly exciting time to add London Stansted Airport to our growing list of premium partners, with the Stadium summer events just around the corner.”
 
Gareth Powell, Managing Director of London Stansted Airport, said: “We’re delighted to announce our exciting new partnership with London Stadium, bringing together London’s fastest growing major airport, with the iconic home of the London 2012 Olympics that now sits at the heart of the transformational regeneration of Stratford and the surrounding areas.
 
“London Stansted is the second biggest port of entry for visitors to London, so as the closest major international airport to the Stadium and with quick and direct public transport links, we will provide convenient, easy and affordable access to thousands of people every year wishing to visit London Stadium plus the shops, restaurants, offices and university close by.
 
“This partnership will not only give London Stansted a global profile at major sporting and entertainment events, it will also cement our commitment to continuing our work in the local area, helping provide jobs plus skill and training opportunities for people wishing to join us at the airport.”
