April in Paris boosts Stansted Airport figures

Ken O’Toole

Stansted Airport saw its busiest April on record as it welcomed nearly 2.4 million passengers through its doors.

During the month – the first of the summer flying schedule – easyJet launched its new Paris Charles de Gaulle service. April also saw the welcome return of SAS with the start of its five flights a week service to Copenhagen.
The moving annual total for the 12 months ending April 2019 now stands at 28.42 million, up 7.99 per cent on the previous year.

Stansted Airport CEO, Ken O’Toole, said: “The start of the summer flying schedule is always a busy time at the airport and this year was no exception. It was great to see easyJet add a new service to Paris, and I’m sure passengers were delighted to see the return to the airport of SAS as we continue our work to attract new airlines and diversify our mix of carriers.

“As we move towards the peak summer period, our primary focus is to ensure we deliver the best airport experience for the millions of passengers who will pass through our doors in the coming months. In addition to recruiting more security and customer service staff to improve the passenger journey, our work on the Stansted Transformation programme, which began in 2018, continues.”
