London Stansted airport has received planning permission for a new £130 million arrivals building.
The 34,000m2 facility, designed by architects Pascall and Watwson and spanning three levels, will help the airport deal with increasing growth projected for the next decade.
It will be situated next to the current terminal and will include larger immigration and baggage reclaim areas, new retail facilities, improved access for all onward transport options and a public forecourt.
The existing terminal will be reconfigured so that it is dedicated to departing passengers, providing more space at check-in, security and in the departure lounge.
The first phase of works will begin later this summer to create some additional capacity in the short-term, including extra check-in desks, additional seating and restaurants in the departure lounge. It will take up to three years to complete.
Stansted Airport CEO, Andrew Cowan, said: “The granting of planning permission for our new £130 million arrivals building is excellent news for everyone connected to Stansted Airport and will transform our infrastructure and facilities to give our passengers the best possible experience.”
“At a time when airport capacity in the country is at a premium, Stansted is playing a vital role in supporting both the regional and national economy. This project will strengthen our ability to do this by enabling us to make the most efficient use of our single runway.”
