According to their latest annual report they are spending 80 million


Later this year, we will be putting
the finishing touches to an 80 million
terminal transformation project that will
double the size of the security area, see
the introduction of our first executive
lounge and provide the Airport with
50 new shops, bars and restaurants.

Don't forget they are spending 20m on the terminal. What have they spent so far? 10m maybe since they are half way through.So they absorbed 10m extra ordinary spend and still EBITA is up
That 10-20-80m or whatever will be capitalised so it is excluded from the EBITDA calculation (it will appear spead over a number of subsequent years as depreciation - which is excluded from EBITDA).

From my experiences at STN that's a bit like Tesco announcing a doubling of the size of a store but using the additional space for storing empty shelves.

Passengers up 16.1%, revenue only up 10.9% - so either traffic income per passenger is dropping or commercial income per passenger is dropping - which do you think is more likely given their big new retail offering?

Revenue up 27m, EBITDA up 26m so only 1m increase in operating costs to service 16.1% growth in passengers - suggests they must be really screwing down operating costs.

Shed - I don't disagree, I doubt MAG have a cash problem so the growth in market value may be sufficient to allow them to be less concerned about short term rate of return (which may be on target anyway - we don't know what their assumptions were in their aquisition business plan).


More likely route incentives on new routes.

As for costs well how many additional people are required if pax numbers go from 23 to 24 millions ? Not really many.

Well seeing as the growth was actually 18.0m to 20.9m at least 3.0m in incremental operating costs, plus inflation.

Long-haul
 
TOM operated their first Dreamliner passenger flight from Stansted today to Montego Bay, Jamaica. The regular flights to Cancun and Orlando-Sanford start in May 2016.

Also TCX, or 'MT' should I refer to them from now on, are well ahead of the game with long-haul available for Summer 2017. They look to be sticking with July and August only with 3x weekly Orlando-Intl, 2x weekly Las Vegas and 1x weekly Cancun.

Actually Thomas Cook are operating an even more expanded long-haul programme than this if you check their booking engine. There are flights now ex Stansted over the major school holidays including the May half term week to Orlando.

Orlando is also up to 10x weekly during the peak school holidays in July/August some days offering two flights operated either by HiFly or Air Tanker.

This is a huge increase for an airport which had no long-haul leisure connections just a couple of years ago.

pamann

Think you might be looking at this summer's schedule. I'm referring to Summer 2017

I've spotted though that GLA is missing some MCO flights in late May and mid October 2017, which coincides with English half-term holidays. I'm going to hazard a guess that the aircraft will, like in 2016, operate STN - MCO for the half-term.

pamann 25th Feb 2016 22:23

Apologies FRatSTN didn't see the '17.

I reckon we'll see an increase as I'm pretty sure the Summer '16 programme was initially announced as three times weekly.

Stansted flights to Sharm with EZY to go ahead this summer. LGW/LTN have been pulled.

Airnavia Aalborg
 
Until yesterday, Danish travel company Airnavia were selling tickets on their website between Stansted and Aalborg. All references to London Stansted seem to have now disappeared from Airnavia's website.Have Airnavia perhaps dropped Stansted ?

Edit - just noticed all flights to the Med from Aalborg now seem to be operated by SAS instead of Danish Air Transport
2nd edit - now confirmed in Danish press that Aalborg-Stansted has been dropped.

That is a surprise, given the almost universal criticism it seems to get on here from those who have passed through recently.

And joint bottom position for the whole of the U.K when passengers were asked to vote which wasn't mentioned by the MD.

Stansted has been named Best London Airport at this year's prestigious 14th annual London Transport Awards... (Thursday, March 3).
They should have waited another 29 days before making this announcement.

I trust more the views of passengers than a bunch of judges who probably never even visited the airport.

No one doubts the fine infrastructure and investment made at Stansted but MAG has failed miserably to turn that investment into a better customer experience.

I've been reading a lot here about STN security. How bad can I expect it to be on a weekday (Wednesday) at around 1pm?

You should be fine and find it easy with not much waiting in line
From experience 0530 to 0800 is very very busy.
But going through at 1300 should be no problem.

Thanks, very helpful.
