Stansted to Share No. 2 Spot

By Linda Tancs

Despite some opposition from environmentalists, Stansted’s airport expansion is set to move forward, making it Britain’s second largest airport along with Gatwick. The move means an increase in passenger travel from 23 million to 35 million. The number of planes allowed to fly in and out will increase from 241,000 to 264,000. Currently, 184,000 planes use the airport. The expansion follows a study showing a shortage of runways in the Southeast. Whether the move will mean a shift in passengers’ airport of choice remains to be seen.
