Stansted Airport has once again been rewarded for maintaining a focus upon environmental management despite aiming to increase its passenger numbers. In 2005, the airport was awarded the IS014001 certificate which honours the successful management of environmental issues. It is currently the biggest airport in the United Kingdom to have been given this award.
The global financial crisis is certainly having an effect on passenger numbers at airports. Figures recently released for the month of June show a decrease for London’s Stansted, Heathrow and Gatwick airports.
Whilst London City airport has just predicted that, they will not experience an overall drop this year, they expect growth to slow down.
BAA has launched an extensive information and consultation programme before it continues with expansion at Stansted Airport.
