Stansted Airport's June traffic sets new record

Posted 11 July 2019 · Add Comment

London Stansted saw over 2.65 million passengers pass through its doors in June, the highest total for the month on record at the airport.



The monthly total was boosted by the 10 new routes operating this year compared to June 2018. The destinations now available are Venice, Murcia, Kyiv, Nantes, Paris, Lvov, Rijeka, Kristiansand, Rodez and Hurghada.

The top three destination countries reporting the strongest growth by passenger volumes in June over the same month last year were Turkey (+31%), Portugal (+19%) and France (+14%).

The moving annual total for the 12 months ending June 2019 increased by 6.3% on the previous year as the airport welcomed over 28.49 million passengers.

Steve Griffiths, London Stansted Chief Operating Officer said: "June was another very busy month for the airport, and the start of what we anticipate will be our busiest ever summer at London Stansted.

"During the month we recorded our busiest ever June day as over 97,000 passengers passed through the airport on the 2nd June, many of which were football fans returning from the Champions League final in Madrid. We also welcomed President Trump to the airport in June, the fifth presidential visit the airport has hosted in recent times.

"As we head into the peak summer months and the main holiday getaway, we continue to drive forward our plans to enhance the passenger experience, create more choice and improve our facilities and services.

"Last week we opened our first on-site multi-storey car park that provides 2,700 new spaces and offers passengers even more parking options, and this week we will open eight new check-in desks in the latest phase of our terminal transformation programme.

"In addition, we have installed four new water refill stations across the airport to provide passengers with free water and cut down on single use plastics, and our multi-million investment to upgrade our baggage system continues to make good progress."
