Make’s airport team is currently reviewing possibilities around the expansion of Stansted Airport. Strategically we believe this to be a viable solution which will help to alleviate the UK’s aviation capacity problems.

The core principles of the review include:

  • Increase runway capacity from one to up to four with a new terminal that has the potential to handle up to 150 million passengers per year
  • To use and improve existing building and transport infrastructure as the basis of the scheme
  • Heathrow does not have to close

We are currently working with engineers to investigate the proposal in greater detail, however as it is not yet finalised, we are unable to share any conclusions at this point.

Our position is independent and looks at the longer term strategic aviation capacity and connectivity not just for the south-east but for the UK and beyond.
