Stansted Airport owner MAG has reported strong growth in first-half turnover and earnings after a record-breaking summer.
Campaigners opposed to an increase in the cap on passengers numbers at Stansted claim that new Government forecasts for growth in air travel undermine the case for expansion put forward by the airport’s owner.
Stansted Airport has scaled-back its expansion plans with a pledge to achieve is growth ambitions without seeking any increase in the number of flights it is allowed to handle.
For the past four years, Ken O’Toole has been chief executive at Manchester Airport, currently the biggest operation within the Manchester Airports Group (MAG) in terms of passenger numbers.
Stansted Airport is close to breaking through the 25m passengers a year threshold after its busiest ever June.
