It is great news for the Car Hire Stansted Airport branch to share that the airport they serve has recorded a superb month.
Stansted Airport recorded their best August for four years by exceeding the 2 million passenger mark, with an 11.6% increase.
Andrew Harrison, Stansted Airport’s managing director, said “It’s great to see the airport so busy again this summer, thanks to the new routes and increased frequencies offered by our airline partners. During August, we welcomed over 2million passengers to Stansted, our busiest single month and the first time we have broken through the two million mark since August 2010. Over the last year, Stansted has been the fastest growing airport in London with passenger numbers increasing by over 7 per cent a year, reinforcing our view that Stansted’s existing capacity will make a vital contribution to meeting the demand for air travel over the next 10 to 15 years.”
Stansted Airport, which was acquired in March last year by Manchester Airports Group (MAG) from the former BAA group, said the latest increase, following growth of 11.7% in June and 12.2% in July, highlighted the airport’s potential role in meeting increased demand for air travel.
