Manchester Airports Group has submitted plans to extend the iconic Norman Foster-designed terminal at Stansted Airport.

The operator aims to extend the terminal space by around a quarter replicating the existing terminal building design.

According to newly published planning inspectorate documents, the existing building will be extended by 54m towards the airfield side along its 306m existing length.

Its north extension will be built on land currently occupied by the Track Transit System, which will be replaced with new sky walkways to the three satellite terminals at the airport.

Designed by Pascall+Watson and Mott MacDonald, the expansion will provide a more spacious departure lounge for more shops, bars and restaurants, as well as increased baggage system capacity and an enlarged security hall.
