    London Stansted Airport (STN), England

    Over a million people used Stansted Airport last month and 18 million passengers have passed through the airport in the past year, according to figures released on Friday.

    The Essex airport has seen a seven percent increase in passenger numbers in the first year under the ownership of Manchester Airports Group (MAG) and this is a sign of continuing growth at Stansted Airport, according to MAG.

    Stansted Airport managing director Andrew Harrison said: “This underlines just how much Stansted has changed for the better in MAG’s ownership, and reflects the strong confidence of our airlines as they grow the number of services offered from the airport.”
