Jones said the downtime is enabling the airport’s management team to progress a masterplan that will increase SEN’s capacity to between 10 and 12 million passengers per year over the next decade
Jones plans are at odds with the goals of COP26 and the UK’s commitments to reduce emissions and not to substantially increase them. An application to expand to this size would go to government and not the council. Also the roads around the airport struggle now with traffic volumes so who would fund a bypass?

I'm surprised they persist with the "between 10 and 12 million passengers a year" mantra. It looked to be almost a fantasy two years ago, but now .....

whilst certainly not having any "insider information" especially since being let go from the cargo operation a couple of months ago, i'm not aware of any rumours of any potential new operators, couple that with what Jones didn't say, ie no mention of ongoing discussions that look hopeful of bringing passenger traffic back anytime soon i'm afraid i remain unconvinced about SEN bouncing back in the near future, i wish i could be more positive but i see the talk of 10 to 12m pax per year as pure pie in the sky dreams and nothing more than talk to try and encourage investors, who imo would need to be huge risk takers to put any money in at this time!

Just a way of admitting that there will be little or nothing to shout about next year but beyond that, wow! watch this space.

I think the current terminal capacity is around 3 million but planning consent was granted for an extension which would probably take it up to 4 million plus. I don't recall the original terminal planning consent stating a maximum permissible number but maybe there was one.

A further plan was published in 2019 which would have involved building a new arrivals terminal and the plan for that showed each terminal having a capacity of 7 million (maybe there was deliberate ambiguity there) with 21 contact stands in total. The total movement cap is 53,300 p.a..

Regarding the press release regarding cargo flights I am sure Amazon must be the PRIME suspect!
