Stansted Airport seeks long-term expansion

UK's Stansted Airport stated that despite withdrawing immediate plans to construct a new runway and terminal, it is still seeking long-term expansion (UK-Airport-News.info, 03-Dec-2010).

Stansted Airport: "We must face up to the challenges and bring things forward. We must respond to the need for growth as Stansted is the only airport in the South East with room to expand. We will overcome the tough market conditions and lay the foundations for future growth. We recognise that we cannot grow uncontrollably. There are many issues locally surrounding airport expansion. But we are committed to meeting the UK’s needs in providing extra capacity as air travel continues to grow," Nick Barton, Commercial and Development Director.
