Location Filming

Filming at busy international airports provides logistical and security challenges which means that whilst we will be accommodating, sometimes it will simply not be possible to facilitate non-essential filming and photography requests:

  • All filming and photography within the airport requires a permit
  • Requests are considered on individual merit
  • Minimum £5million Public Liability Insurance is required
  • Unfortunately it is not usually possible to allow student filming and photography at the airport

Generally, a request must be made at least two working days for news coverage and four working days for commercial filming/photography before the required date. To apply for permission to film or photograph at London Stansted you must e-mail one of the addresses below and supply the following information:

Date of filming/photography

  • Time/duration
  • Company representing
  • Crew size/equipment
  • Purpose of filming
  • Areas seeking permission to film/photograph in
  • Confirmation you hold £5million public liability insurance
  • Your contact details

Please note: Security will remove anyone filming and photographing without this permission.
