It was named in the top five of European airports for growth in direct flights after recording a 43% rise since 2013, the year it was acquired by Manchester Airports Group (MAG), in the Airports Council International (ACI) Europe annual Airport Industry Connectivity Report.

“During 2018 we have already extended our route network with new long-haul flights now available to Dubai with Emirates in addition to Primera Air’s services to New York, Boston, Toronto that will soon be joined by direct flights to Washington DC later this summer,” said chief executive Ken O’Toole.

“This year we will be the fastest growing major London airport and with limited spare capacity at other airports in the South East, Stansted will deliver 50% of London’s expected passenger growth over the next decade.”
