London Stansted: a little history


London Stansted airport has a rich and varied history. The airport began life as a military air base during the Second World War. Built in 1942 by the US Army, it was used for bombing missions by American and British air forces.

After the war, Stansted remained under military control until 1966. At that date, the British government decided to convert it into a civilian airport. This decision was in response to the growing demand for air travel in the London area. The airport was officially opened to civilian traffic in 1969.

Over the years, Stansted has undergone significant expansion to meet growing passenger demand. In 1991, the current terminal was opened, marking a new era of modernization and growth for the airport.

Today, Stansted is one of the UK’s leading airports. Its eventful history as a military base transformed into a civilian airport makes it an important part of the UK airport landscape. It serves millions of passengers every year with flights to national and international destinations. It is a preferred choice for business aviation, as well as for low-cost airlines such as EasyJet and Ryanair, who have made it their base.
