London Stansted Airport reflects on a busy 2018 with highlights video

London Stansted Airport has released a video highlighting some of the key headlines and events from 2018 – the busiest ever year in the airport’s history.

From milestones and ministerial visits to new airlines and sustainability achievements, the highlights reel includes just a selection of the major events that happened at Stansted over the last 12 months.

Last year started on a high, as Stansted reported that 2017 was the busiest ever with 25.9 million passengers, surpassed by the end of 2018 with 28 million. And it ended on a high for colleagues across the airport, who took part in a festive video which was widely shared across social media and local press. 


The coming year looks set to be a huge year at London Stansted and while we are already focused on looking forward at our ambitious plans, it is rewarding to reflect on the past 12 months and celebrate some of the many achievements of our colleagues.

2018 saw many exciting changes at London Stansted, including the opening of a unique on-site college, the arrival of world-leading airlines including Emirates, and receiving planning permission to grow to serve 43 million passengers. We have even more exciting development on the horizon and I look forward to sharing our growth and service improvements with passengers this year.
Jonathan Oates, Corporate Affairs Director at London Stansted Airport
