Kuwait Airways-tech stop

Is it still coming?

Suggestion is that Manchester are demanding it reverts to that airport after an internal spat!

Not sure of any internal spat but looks like it is going via MAN now.

According to someone on the MAN thread only until May 19th when it switches to STN

May be incorrect, as a lot being done to set up the MAN stop, just for a months operation
, the whole thing seems very confused right now.

Planning has been secured for the 130 million dedicated arrivals terminal which will allow the existing terminal building to expand and be redeveloped for departures only

Another hefty investment & gearing up for future max use of the existing runway...Well done MAG as they state also since acquiring STN traffic has increased 40%...(admittedly from the low point inherited)..In lieu of the transformation also announced is a further increase in capacity-(with work to commence later this Summer)-within the existing departures inc more check-in desks & more seating & more restaurants airside......When complete STN will be the only airport in the UK with stand alone Arrivals & Departure Terminals....

Their airport at Bournemouth has the same arrangement.

I should imagine Satelite Four will be the next investment to be announced then SAT 3 and SAT 4 could be purely Ryanair releasing extra gates in SAT 2 for any Jet2 expansion.

I believe that is broadly the plan longer term

Here's the picture. It doesn't look particularly separate as it's just butted up as an extension of the current terminal. Which it would have to be to allow access to the train station etc.

Stansted Airport announces new 130m arrivals terminal - BBC News

But what an architectural mish-mash. The architects have gone out of their way to design something which, while of comparable height etc as the current building, is just jarring and out of keeping in almost every respect. Whatever happened to good design ?

At Heathrow all of the terminals are separated by distance. This looks like a single building even though it is not so looks a little odd. Once inside they will no doubt be connected so passengers and visitors will feel as though they are in one building. At Bournemouth I had to step outside to cross the gap which felt very strange.

Stansted has the luxury of plenty of land for expansion. That very fact means it will have a great future and should rival Gatwick in terms of capacity for its single runway.

That seems to be the MAG way - I believe it's called 'Value-engineering'. Just look at the proposed expansion of MAN T2, not exactly a beacon for good architecture !

It is good to see Stansted growing and with more variety of carriers and the investment in new facilities is definitely needed as the terminal is nothing like the calm space it was originally designed and intended to be. That said I think it's sad they have opted for a cheap looking add on structure rather than in keeping with the Foster Associates terminal design. Maybe it will all look fantastic in a few years time but personally I think it should be built in the existing style.

The existing terminal was built in the BAA era, when money was no object and appearance was more important than profit.

I suppose if the day comes when airlines like Ryanair and their customers are happy to pay more for airport charges and ticket prices then MAG will build them whatever they want. Since that's never going to happen the best we can hope for is "functional". It's the UK plc way.

And this will happen at STN long before even a bulldozer gets access to start expansion at LHR ! In 5 years time, the MP's will still be debating LHR so as to keep their jobs whereas STN just goes ahead. I admit, we're not talking about another runway at STN but even so........

With the heat stepping up on longhaul particularly to the US from Gatwick with Norwegian I wonder if the likes so VS or BA will ever consider starting up at Stansted it's an untapped market and the demand is definitely there to be honest I'm supposed it hasn't happened this summer
Continental and American managed it years ago with good loads
In my opinion Virgin would do very well out of Stansted
In a slightly different market BA have been surprised with demand from Stansted on its holiday city and ski destinations from Stansted so surly its only a matter of time.

No they didn't, it was a financial flop, which is why they were withdrawn. The economy cabin was filled through various discounters, business and first just didn't sell. If you thought there were pax seated in there, they would be upgrades in the normal US carrier fashion.

Incidentally, when AA ran (in 1992-3) from Stansted to Chicago with 767s, they ran a competition, prize a couple of transatlantic tickets, for what US onward destination had the most onward connecting pax from their first month's flights. I remember picking up the entry form when passing through the STN terminal, and dropping it in the box at the AA desk. Didn't win. What do you think the correct answer was ?
