Following the government's recent announcement for Heathrow's third runway, the MAG group has announced a £130 Million investment injection, to revamp Stansted Airport.
This interesting article in the Telegraph, hinted it may well be the precursor to any potential future expansion plans of the airport in the future as well.
It will be interesting to see if other airports around the UK also state their investment plans for their airports, but also how we can fill the jobs that all the major infrastructure projects announced in 2016 will no doubt require.
London Stansted, which sees up to 5,000 passengers every hour through its doors, has unveiled plans for a new arrivals building which, it says, will improve the passenger experience. The Essex airport welcomed 22.5million travellers in 2015, making it the UK’s fourth busiest airport, and it expects that number to keep rising to its capacity of 35 million. The airport saw a 12.8 per cent growth in passenger numbers from 2014 to 2015, one of the largest rises in the country.
