Haven't you seen the G2 plans on the Stansted website? Try watching the video - it's all happening Southside. http://www.stanstedairport.com/porta...0357e120a____/

There's no expansion plans Northside other than development of Long Stay Car Park. Cargo will not be going anywhere and if anything will develop further Southwards from the Zulu apron and/or West towards the SRT Diamond Hangar.

The option of cargo stands on the Northside was looked at back when Fedex expanded their operation but obviously the Zulu stands was the result. Fedex will no doubt want to expand even further and I can the Zulu cul-de-sac becoming the same size as the Alphas one day. Looking at that G2 clip it cleary shows the Northside as a carpark.
I wonder what will happen to Titan airways Hangar?

Same fate as the old Control Tower I would think - another victim of progress

What's the plans for the Enterprise House car park ? Looks like they are making another entrance so i presume they will block the gap between upper and lower and make it 2 seperate car parks ??

From the plans circulated to local residents the Titan hangar and a single linked taxiway appear to remain, at least initially, with almost all remaining area north of a line running east from from Harrods to the Fire training area earmarked for long term car parking. A new public border road is planned to by-pass Burton End (running approximately along the line of the current airfield boundary, linking up with the minor road to Elsenham east of the Fire training area.

Someone mentioned earlier the building of the visitor centre; its access will be from the current LT car park mini-roundabout and located close to the 05 threshhold. Its location, for the majority of the year, will only give views of the undersides of departing aircraft and very limited views of most arrivals on 23. The BAA (unsurprisingly and arrogantly) ignored offers of help from the local (enthusiast) community with its design, location and help to build something useful which has been long overdue at Stansted. Consequently BAA have missed a good opportunity to win friends and have a potential white elephant in the making.

Are these plans / layout viewable online, maybe via the local authority?

North-side plans

Will these plans mean an end to the local bus company parking area at North side, i.e. Excel ( which have just been taken over by Arriva).

See http://www.stanstedairport.com/asset...Drawing_3n.pdf

From this it appears that the coach park will remain north side until 2015 if it is designated as an ancillary service

Additionally my information about the new link road, which is not shown on the map, came from a BAA leaflet issued to local residents.

Well ThomsonFly/FCA/TUIFly what ever it’s to be called have 2 B738’s to be based @ STN Summer 2009. The programme so far (Edition 1) Looks like this….

Antalya (New for TFly) Friday
Arrecife (Lanzarote) Thursday
Bodrum (New for TFly) Monday & Thursday
Corfu Monday & Friday
Dalaman Monday & Thursday
Faro (New for TFly) Sunday
Fuerteventura Saturday
Heraklion (Crete) Tuesday & Sunday
Ibiza Wednesday & Saturday
Kephalonia (New Destination!) Sunday
Mahon (Menorca) Monday & Friday

Paphos (Cyprus) Wednesday & Saturday
Reus (Costa Dorada) (New for TFly) Tuesday
Rhodes (New for TFly) Wednesday
Tenerife South Fridays
Zakynthos (New for TFly) Tuesday

Note that “New for ThomsonFly” was probably previously operated by FCA Summer 2008.

New destination of Kephalonia and increased frequencies on some routes, so for a base that was supposed to close (TOM) that’s a bit of a turn around at least!

Stansted Control Tower!

What a shame it has gone!! I had the privilege to work in that building from 1969 until 1973! I was there when the "new terminal" was built and the "old terminal became the staff canteen!! At times the new terminal was too small, even then! Remember Channel, Lloyds, American Flyers, Saturn, Trans Med with their CL 44's doing charter flights to Ostend and other near European destinations! Memories!! How times move on, but the memories of Stansted as it was in the late 60's and early 70's remain! Good luck to all that work there now and may it be as good for you now as it was for me then!!

What a shock to hear that EOS is to end flying as from today, a sad day indeed. Best wishes to all concerned, Essex will miss you.

This is sad news!

You can hear the back slapping in Waterside & Dallas from here. AAL can now pull the JFK services.

Sceptical, moi?
