The Stansted timings are very passenger friendly departing 21:10 with arrival early morning 07:10, and in the other direction leaving Dubai at 08:50 and arrive in Stansted at 13:30 (local times).  The news follows Stansted lounge upgrade in BTN 1 August and with it a Bottega Prosecco Bar & Caffé and the opportunity to taste Bottega’s carefully selected still and sparkling wines.
