Officials from Stansted, Manchester and Luton airports have detailed how they plan to expand their facilities as air travel gets back on track after the Coronavirus pandemic.

Stansted: Beginning in 2026, Stansted Airport will begin construction work for an expansion of its facilities. The 16,000m2 terminal extension will extend the back of the existing terminal by three bays utilizing spare capacity on the airport’s existing runway.

Manchester: Manchester Airport’s £1.3bn transformation programme is already well underway with the completion of phase one. This included the opening of a new pier (pier 1), a new multi-storey car park and conducting the first phase of airfield works.

Luton: Luton Airport is also planning an expansion of its facilities but these are at a much earlier stage.
