Stansted-4

In line with Government national policy supporting UK airports STN set to receive £8m or equivalent to the airport`s business rate for the year.

Isn't it an amount equivalent to the airport`s business rate for the year, up to a maximum of £8m?

Yes indeed hence my use of the phrase `or equivalent` in the sentence.

Publicity from & surrounding a local MP states the generic Government news release of £8m but then she would wouldn`t she...same with other local Tory MP`s & Mayors with airport workers in their constituency it appears.

So how much will STN receive? I've no idea what their annual business rates bill is. The figure for MME is around £470,000 so I assume the STN figure is well below £8 million.

According to a listing for year 19/20 rates due payable by STN = £12,136,320.

I have heard lots of rumours that the world is actually flat so there must be a bit of truth in it and that a new long haul service from Stansted to the edge could start by the summer.

With LCY shelving plans to extend its operating hours that should hopefully bode well for the STN CFE/BAW weekend ops either 21/22 then.

It seems the Citiflyer operation has gone to Southampton for ‘21 so whether it does indeed return to STN or MAN in ‘22 remains to be seen. Certainly it did seem a stretch for them to be running a STN operation when not even their LHR or LCY activities are at full strength, not to mention LGW.

I had looked at flights to Malaga in October half term 2021 usually paying close to a grand for a family of four on this trip ba were charging £350 for all four adults. If thatís during school holidays I can see why they left.

I was looking at flights to Mykonos with them ex Stansted but both LHR and LCY were working out cheaper. Most of their routes overlapped to be fair with FR/LS and I guess they can’t compete on frequency.

I used them a couple of years ago, flying out FR returning BA/CF. I have to say the FR flight was much better, with a really friendly crew. The CF cabin crew were stuffy and refused a second drink request on a 2hr + flight. They also wished us all a very pleasant stay in Stansted when we landed. I’m not sure any of us were planning on a vacation at Mountfitchet Castle if I’m honest.

2020 was supposed to have been the third or fourth year of operation so we can probably take from that performance was satisfactory. Certainly the one time I used them it was full up front, maybe 6 or 7 rows of Club.

How would a BA Cargo Strike mean Stansted picking up more business?

With no-one to load and reload belly frieght and dedicated cargo flights through BA Cargo at LHR freight forwarder may seek to reroute urgent supplies into another airport which is geared up for Cargo.

I very much doubt that Stansted will see an influx on new or more cargo movements more a strike at Heathrow. BAís main cargo airline is themselves with Bell Freight and DHL.
DHL already have a big operation at East Midlands and a substantial presence at Luton.
Im my eyes the most likely change could be Qatar who operates their flights for BA Cargo. With Freight from Hong Kong. They may do an extra flight but this time of year an extra flight from Qatar isnít unusual.
Im not saying itís impossible Stansted might see the odd extra flight but itís highly unlikely. Never had big changes before on previous strikes from other UK cargo hubs.
