Stansted Airport voted best in the world for low-cost airlines

LONDON Stansted Airport was named the world’s best airport for low-cost airlines at the World Airport Awards.

It is the third successive year that the airport, now part of Manchester Airports Group (M.A.G), topped the poll of 12.1 million passengers in the annual SKYTRAX airport customer survey.

The survey focused on all aspects of the passenger journey and captured the opinions of over 108 different nationalities at 395 airports across the world.

Collecting the award on behalf of Stansted Airport at the ceremony in Geneva, Switzerland, Communications Director, Will Parkes, said: “It’s a fantastic achievement and a very proud moment for everyone at Stansted to be voted the world’s best airport for low-cost airlines for the third year in a row.

“It’s made all the more special as the award is decided by the people that matter the most in the aviation world and the users of airports across the globe; our passengers.
