London Stansted Airport

IATA code: STN

Stansted Airport is an airport in Essex, United Kingdom about fifty miles north of London, United Kingdom. It was adapted from a WWII bomber base. It is connected to Northeast London and Cambridge by the M11 motorway and by express electric trains to the London terminus of Liverpool Street station and, less frequently, to Cambridge and the midlands.

It is a medium-sized passenger airport with a single runway. Tentative plans have been published for the addition of up to three more runways.

Several budget airlines such as Ryanair[?] and easyJet maintain bases there and Volga-Dnepr[?] often station a large Antonov 124 freighter to the northwest of the main runway ready to carry outsize cargoes.

Passengers hoping to use the long term car park should realise that it is about a mile from the terminal and should therefore allow at least twenty minutes to park and use a courtesy bus shuttle service prior to check-in. There are short term car parks next to the bus/coach station adjacent to the terminal and the rail terminus is at basement level beneath that terminal.\

Continental Airlines attempted to establish a transatlantic market between Essex, United Kingdom, and Newark, New Jersey. Continental's flight was daily with a Boeing 757-200 International Confuguration. September 11 basically killed the flight.

Stansted International Airport has 1 terminal
