Stansted Airport management has made great strides to help keep passengers on track during the busy times at the airport. By the end of March 2007, ready for the Easter rush, a larger security search area will be in operation as part of a £2-million pound investment aimed at speeding up the security process for passengers checking in at the terminal.
Additional x-ray machines and arches, with extra entry points and security lanes, will be installed. This should help to alleviate the extra demands of security and the inevitable increase in passengers due to pass through security every hour.
Mark Murphy, Stansted's customer service director, said:
".... This investment clearly demonstrates our commitment to reducing queuing times at security and provide even better customer service - while maintaining the highest security standards."
If you are already planning your Easter Holiday and have booked an early morning flight look again to Holiday Extras to provide a comfortable airport stopover.
