London Stansted Sees Record Passenger Growth

London Stansted – of importance to Irish consumers as it is the UK hub of Ryanair – saw record passenger and cargo volumes in April, latest monthly figures show.

The airport saw 2.48 million passengers pass through it last month. This was up 5.5% on the same month last year and up by more than 90,000 on the previous record April set in pre-Covid 2019.

The 12-month total to the end of April stood at 28.64 million passengers, an increase of 10.8% on the previous year.

Gareth Powell, London Stansted’s Managing Director, said: “April was another very strong month for London Stansted with both passenger and cargo numbers hitting new highs, thanks to our extensive passenger route network, the efficiency and simplicity of the airport’s operation and the global connectivity provided by our cargo carriers.”
