New Extension.....
 
...only definite I've heard is Marks & Spencers, though I don't think that will be in the extension - there's a lot to be moved around in the W.H.Smith and Costa Coffee area. I think most of the new bit will be the likes of Taxi, Car Hire, Train & Coach desks etc. Though I guess BAA's need to make money from retail too might see something new introduced.

I think I am right in saying that the new hangar being erected next to the diamond hangar is for Ryanair.
As for the spotting area, that will be located close to the roundabout just before the hilton hotel.

Eastern Airways
 
Yes, Eastern starting new low cost outta STN. Mmmmmmm! You must book 8 weeks in advance for that 49 one way though and its only available on the 3rd rotation. Nothing against the company though! :rolleyes:

TCX
 
TCX are operating two aircraft from STN tomorrow LPA (again) and the normal Dalaman.

The new hangar next FLS is going to house some of FR's new simulators (means we don't have to drive all the way to EMA to have our sim checks:)). And I think it's also going to be for maintenance aswell, but don't quote me on that!

One things for sure, it's going up at an alarming rate!

Barnesy2006 6th Apr 2008 23:44

Yes its also going to be used for engineering, the hangar will be 5 berth being able to acommadate 3 whole aircraft and 2 nose sections.

normally ryanair annonuce when they are building hangers i didnt hear anything , is there anything else being built there as theres lots of land

Barnesy2006 7th Apr 2008 20:49

At the moment as your aware theres the Ryanair hangar, Terminal expansion which is not too far from completion and i believe cargo area expansion.

TUGNBAR 7th Apr 2008 22:05


is there anything else being built there as theres lots of land
There is lots of potential for many things with the amount of land available. Now that the old tower has been demolished I know next on the list is the old FLS Hangar 4.........Is this all in preparation for the new/extension of the Long Stay Car park? (G2)

i thought the old tower was a listed building.when was that knocked down

Lots of room for EOS to go northside self handling?????

stuinn 8th Apr 2008 12:37

I thought silverjet tried to use north side and were refused before going to Luton.

The only list that building was on was BAA's to knock down list. It was knocked down about two weeks ago.

money talks................

I think had Maxjet not ceased operation EOS would have looked Northside for sure, although the BAA would no doubt have put a stop on anything like that happening, hence why SilverJet went to Luton.

North side
 
I think BAA have bigger plans for the old terminal, (North side), there is so much room over there, to let one Airline make it its home would be madness, if anything they could move the cargo area from where it is now
to the north side and build a new departure building on the (now) cargo area, this would provide extra stands for the terminal and give the cargo operation room for expansion at the old terminal.

FEROMAN 9th Apr 2008 20:09

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.

TUGNBAR 9th Apr 2008 20:12

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?

FEROMAN 10th Apr 2008 05:49

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