I would imagine that DHL would fly into EMA and truck the freight down. FedEx possibly similar or even truck it from Paris.
I thought EMA was pretty much full, hence BHX has picked up any Ah-Hoc Cargo work recently.

I am not sure BHX has necessarily picked up cargo work from EMA, BHX's success with cargo is probably more to do with a small highly motivated cargo handling business hungry for work.

For the first time since pre pandemic we are flying with hold case from Stansted.
Assumming we have paid any charges associated and checked in online and printed the boarding pass are / is there a Bag Drop zone we can process said hold case and head for security even before the actual check in desk opens 2 hours before the flight so freeing up space at the desk for people not as organised as us??
thanks in advance

You might get a quicker answer if you say which airline you are flying with?

If you just need to drop a bag off and don’t need visa/document check etc there is an area just before the security check where you drop your bag yourself. I don’t think there’s a time limit. You just scan your boarding pass and it prints your label, attach and drop at the belt.

Many thanks '328. That's how it worked last time hold luggage was needed at Heathrow...

Vueling

Any reason for the random Vueling flights popping up at Stansted over the past few days? No info on the Vueling website but they seem to be Gatwick flights that have been moved over…

Available to book on some random dates to Bilbao, Malaga and Paris Orly. I’d say they’re an overspill from Gatwick due to capacity reductions.

These are flights that could not get their normal slots at Gatwick to the slot restrictions in place. Originally these where not bookable on the Vueling website but I’ve the last week this has changed.

STN transformation - updates?

Does anyone know of any updates regarding STN's transformation project? A lot of this was put on hold during the height of the pandemic, but now that things are moving again, what is happening in terms of refurbishment of the terminal and satellites 2 and 3?

Also, is there any news on the arrivals building?

Plans and projects are being discussed at a high level. Plans for the arrivals building to still be built are one. Plus a possibility of a second terminal to be built as well with a fourth satellite also constructed.
MAG are claiming to still be losing money currently and are in pay deal talks at Stansted so I doubt any big construction projects will take place soon.

A total of £320m was lost by the group behind Manchester, London Stansted and East Midlands airports during its latest financial year. Manchester Airports Group (MAG) added that its combined losses for the last two years stand at £694m. In the 12 months to the end of March this year, passenger numbers were a third of pre-pandemic levels. Compared with 2018/19, revenues were down 80% in 2020/21 and 48% during the following year.
Looks like they are.

It would be great to see them finish the shoreline Check-in area across the terminal. The rest of the Check-in areas look outdated and in need of an upgrade. Land-side needs bringing up-to-date.

Interesting RE. arrivals building - I remember reading somewhere that MAG were in the process of making some design changes to the building, but unsure if these are major or minor?

That's also very interesting that MAG are considering a second terminal for STN- but would this seriously be needed, given that the existing terminal will eventually be dedicated to departing passengers only, once the arrivals terminal is completed? Unless they scrap plans for the arrivals building and proceed with a second terminal?

As for the satellites- talk of a fourth satellite has been on the cards for many years, well before MAG took over from BAA, but it has never come to fruition. If and when it were to be built, where would it go, in relation to satellites 1-3, and also, what do people think we could expect in terms of design and layout of gate areas etc? Would it be something like satellites 1/2 with jet bridges, or more like satellite 3? I think before MAG do decide to build a fourth satellite, shouldn't they work on getting satellites 2 and 3 up-to-date? Both are looking very worn and tired, especially satellite 2.

I absolutely agree. The initial phase of the shoreline check in product is looking very smart and spacious, but the remaining of the original "islands" look very poor in comparison, particularly zones E and F. Are MAG planning on proceeding with this element of the terminal refurb soon?

I think that the location for a fourth satellite is rather obvious isn't it 🤔

If and when it is built I have no doubt that it will be a replica of satellite 3 with Ryanair being the beneficiary.

But I totally agree with you regarding the refurbishment of satellites 1 and 2. Some nice brand new glazed air-bridges would also look good. Hopefully once the busy summer season comes to an end the airport can continue with the expansion of the shoreline check-in.

Sat 4 is obviously next to sat 3 (Ryanair Gates). The groundwork’s are already done.
I seen plans for Sat 5 which will be situated where the Cargo terminal is.

SAT5 replacing cargo???
I’d like to see plans or evidence of this. Never heard that rumour at all!

It was such a long time ago whilst under BAA, there was a exhibition in the staff canteen in the under Croft.
Look at a birds eye image and you can see, replace the older cargo terminal the TNT one, replace with a satellite building
build new cargo building the other side of the FedEx apron.
sorry there was no camera phones back in the day 😬
