London Stansted Airport reported (11-Mar-2015) a 24.6% year-on-year increase in passenger numbers to 1.5 million in Feb-2015, marking its busiest February since 2008. Rolling 12 month passengers increased 144% to 20.6 million, marking the highest annual growth rate of any major UK airport. Cargo volume increased 8.58% to 17,410 tonnes and aircraft movements increased 16.2% to 10,660. MD Andrew Harrison commented, “The rapid growth in passenger numbers – Stansted is the fastest growing major airport in the UK – and the increasing support we are seeing right across the region for improved rail services between Cambridge, Stansted and London, clearly demonstrates the vital role the airport can and will play in supporting economic growth and activity through better international connectivity and access to overseas markets." [more - original PR]
