London Stansted Airport, currently Britain's fourth busiest airport, first opened its doors to commercial passengers in 1986. Situated in Essex, it is less than a mile from the Hertfordshire border and approx. 30 miles northeast of Central London, but is easily reached by car as it is just off the M11.

There are three passenger satellites in which the departure gates are situated; one is connected to the main terminal by an air-bridge and the other two by the Stansted Airport Transit System people mover.

The airport is currently owned and operated by the Manchester Airports Group (MAG) who bought it in 2013 from the BAA. With more scheduled European destinations than any other UK airport, it is popular with both the budget and charter airlines with Easyjet and Ryanair flying from Stansted as well as other well-known airlines such as Thomson Airways and Thomas Cook.

Maple Park & Ride

Everything was fine with the arrival. Transfer was hood. Arrived back at Stanstead and confirmed the code to be picked up. Had to wait for 1 hour to be picked up. When the bus came it was afree for all and new arrivals jumped on the bus when people were wsiting.. it was also dangerous as the bus parked either side of the road and people were dodging the trsffic to beat the queue.
