Stansted has released a computer-generated video showcasing its new arrivals terminal and other features of the airport’s £600 million renovation.
This week it announced that it has appointed contractors Mace to build the 39,000 square metre terminal, designed by architects Pascall+Watson.
The £150 million project is due to start in spring and is scheduled for completion in autumn 2020.
The new arrivals terminal will include larger immigration and baggage reclaim areas, new retail facilities, a public forecourt and improved access for onward transport options.
It will make Stansted the only UK airport with separate arrivals and departures terminals.
The airport aims to grow its annual passenger limit from 35 million to 43 million.

Ken O’Toole, CEO of London Stansted, commented:
“London Stansted’s transformation project is really gathering momentum. We’ve made fantastic progress so far, but it’s this year when the project starts to take-off when work begins on our arrivals terminal.
“The terminal is the most significant contract the airport has awarded as part of this project, and when complete it will provide a first-class, technology enabled, experience for our passengers.”
