London StanstedLondon Stansted welcomed over 2.7 million passengers in August as the airport recorded its busiest ever summer season with a total of 7.6 million passengers passing through the terminal during the peak months of June-August.

 

August was also the busiest single month on record at Stansted, beating the previous all-time high set just last month, and up 9.9% over the same month last year.

 

During the month Stansted broke the record for its busiest single day for the second month running as 94,785 passengers passed through the terminal on 14 August. The top ten busiest ever days at Stansted are now all recorded in July and August this year.

 

The rolling 12 month total to August 2017 now stands at 25.4 million passengers, an increase of 6.4% over the previous year.

 

To keep pace with demand and enhance the overall airport experience, Stansted has committed to a significant investment programme to improve customer facilities, including adding more check-in desks, more seating in the departure lounge and additional car parking spaces. This is in advance of the construction of a new £130 million dedicated arrivals building.

 

Cargo volumes continue to rise with more than 21,500 tonnes of goods passing through the airport in August, up 1.4% over the same month last year. The annual total increased by 4.0% over the previous 12 months to over 259,400 tonnes for the period.
