Work has already started on the next phase of Stansted Airport’s £80m upgrade of the terminal, and should improve facilities at Satellite One, a departure area for international flights.

The development will also include the first lounge in the main departures area in the airport’s 24-year history, due to be completed this spring.

The overhaul of Satellite One, one of the airport’s three departure areas, will offer fully refurbished toilets, free charging points and improved Wi-Fi for passengers. The revamp is part of the multi-million pound transformation of the terminal, which has included the new security area as well as the first phase of a brand new departure lounge.

Managing director Andrew Harrison said: “These are really exciting times and will be a significant turning point in the airport’s history.
