New Stansted takes shape

New images and details have been unveiled of how Stansted’s planned new arrivals terminal, complete with plaza-style forecourt and spacious new immigration and baggage reclaim areas, will look when it opens in 2020.

The updated computer-generated imagery (CGIs) are the latest concepts by architecture firm Pascall+Watson, which was selected as the designer of the £130m building last March.

Stansted transformation director Paul Willis said: “The terminal is the centrepiece of our £600m rebuilding programme and these latest images whet the appetite of what the new and improved Stansted will look like when the facility opens.

“This five-year multi-million-pound project will transform the experience for millions of passengers and help to unlock the airport’s spare runway capacity, providing passengers with a wider choice of airlines and destinations.”

Phase one of the transformation project is well under way with a new check-in zone, 350-seat restaurant and short-stay car parks opening over the summer, against a background of London’s third busiest airport welcoming a record 27m passengers in the past 12 months.

Stansted currently has permission to handle 35m passengers a year and has plans to increase capacity to 43m, subject to planning permission, without any additional noise impacts beyond its permissions.
