Stansted gathers pace

Phase one of Stansted Airport’s brand new international departure lounge was officially opened today by Charlie Cornish, Chief Executive of M.A.G and Andrew Harrison, Managing Director, Stansted Airport, at a special event to mark the launch of the World Duty Free Group’s new flagship store and entrance into the multi-million pound development.
The £80m terminal transformation project taking place at Stansted to significantly improve the services and facilities available for passengers marked its first major milestone earlier this year with the full opening of a new security search area, providing additional lanes and dedicated channels for fast track, families and passengers needing assistance. 
This latest phase guides passengers on a simple journey through the largest World Duty Free store in terms of retail space and onto the many leading travel brands that have already secured prime positions including WHSmith, Boots, Dixons Travel, Glorious Britain, JD Sports, Rituals, Fat Face and Next. 

The next major milestone in the transformation will be the opening of a brand new Escape Lounge in early 2015, located directly below the main departures area and overlooking the airfield followed by the arrival of further food and beverage brands.  The project will be completed in the autumn of next year with a further 16 new retail units.   www.stanstedairport.com/transformation
