London Stansted Airport Information
Stansted is located 31 miles (50 km) northeast of the center of London. There's a travel center just outside the customs area. The airport Web site is part of the BAA Web site with links to seven British airports. BAA is the British Airport Authority. Stansted's Web site includes:
- A map of the terminal and other info
- Information on flight arrivals
- Information on transportation options for getting to the airport
An option, but an expensive one. Taxis are available in front of the arrivals area. The metered fare will be about ?70 ($115), and the journey to central London will take from 60 to 90 minutes, depending on the traffic.
The Stansted Skytrain runs from the airport to Liverpool Street Station in London. Trains run every half hour from 5:30 A.M. until 11 P.M. The trip takes 40 minutes, and the one-way fare is ?11 ($18). From Liverpool Street Station you can take a taxi or the Underground to your final destination. You can also take trains from Stansted Station to the north of England, to places such as Cambridge, Peterborough, Birmingham, Manchester, and Liverpool.
National Express offers bus service five times a day, Monday through Saturday, to Victoria Coach Station. If your destination is near Victoria Station, this is a convenient option. It's a little cheaper than the train, but will take about double the time to get to central London (60-90 minutes).
There are frequent buses to the other airports with Jetlink including a bus between Stansted and Gatwick, with stops at Victoria Coach Station, Chessington and Wandsworth. Fare is ?17 ($26). You should leave at least 2-1/2 hours between flights if you are connecting to Heathrow, and up 3-1/2 hours for a Gatwick connection. The travel time to Heathrow is around 60 minutes depending on the traffic, and about 2 hours to Gatwick.
Major car rental companies have offices at Stansted. London driving, we hasten to add, is not for the faint of heart.
Stansted Airport (IATA: STN, ICAO: EGSS) is a medium-sized passenger airport with a single runway, located in the English county of Essex about thirty miles north of London. The airport is owned and operated by BAA. It is the third-busiest airport in the London area after Heathrow Airport and Gatwick Airport. Several budget airlines such as Ryanair and easyJet maintain bases at Stansted, and Volga-Dnepr often station a large Antonov An-124 freighter to the northwest of the main runway ready to carry outsize cargoes. FedEx is a dominant operator of trans-Atlantic freighter services.
The airport is named after the village Stansted Mountfitchet. The nearest town to the airport is Bishop's Stortford.
The lawn in front of Stansted Airport attracts large numbers of people waiting for their flight during the summer
Stansted International Airport has one terminal. The terminal facilities include a bureau de change, left luggage service, several shops and restaurants as well as internet access. Car hire and taxis can also be arranged from within the terminal building. The terminal building was designed by Foster Associates and features a "floating" roof, supported by a space frame of inverted-pyramid roof trusses. The base of each truss structure is a "utility pillar", which provides indirect uplighting illumination and is the location for air-conditioning and water, telecommunications, and electrical outlets. The layout of the airport is designed to provide an unobstructed flow for passengers to arrive at the short-stay car park, move through the check-in hall and on to the departure gates all on the same level. However, the airport has never catered for spectators or those wishing to watch friends depart.
