Commenting on today’s announcement, Stansted Airport’s Managing Director Andrew Harrison said:

“The £80million investment project to transform Stansted’s terminal and departure lounge is now in its third and final stage and I’m delighted to  unveil the line-up of global and high street brands, returning favourites and exciting new concepts that have secured their positions and set to open for business later this autumn.

“Interest in this final phase was once again extremely high with over 80 proposals received for the 18 remaining retail units giving a clear indication of what an exciting development this is in terms of travel retail.

“We only announced this ambitious investment programme two years ago so it’s a fantastic achievement to successfully deliver the project within such a tight timeframe and during a period of rapid passenger growth at Stansted. I’m sure our frequent fliers will be especially pleased to learn that the end of this major transformation is now in sight and they can soon enjoy the full benefits of the re-development.”

The Stansted transformation project kicked-off by relocating security to a new area, double in size with extra lanes and dedicated channels for Fast Track, families and passengers needing assistance.  Phase one of the international departure lounge welcomed the opening of nine new retail units including the largest walk-through World Duty Free in terms of retail space.

Phase two of the development increased the choice of cafes, bars and restaurants with the arrival of 12 new offers including airport firsts, celebrity chef treats and traditional favourites as well as welcoming the opening of the airport’s first ever Escape Lounge.
