London Stansted Airport (IATA: STN, ICAO: EGSS) is an international airport located at Stansted Mountfitchet in the local government district of Uttlesford in Essex, 30 mi (48 km) northeast of Central London and 0.93 mi (1.50 km) from the Hertfordshire border.

London Stansted currently serves over 170 destinations across Europe, North Africa, Central and North America and more scheduled European destinations than any other airport in the UK. Stansted is a base for a number of major European low-cost carriers, being the largest base for low-cost airline Ryanair with over 130 destinations served by the airline. In 2015 it was the fourth busiest airport in the United Kingdom after Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester. Stansted’s runway is also used by private companies such as the Harrods Aviation terminal which is opposite the main terminal building and handles private jets and some state visits.

The airport is owned and operated by the Manchester Airports Group (MAG), which also owns and operates three other UK airports. MAG agreed to buy the airport from Heathrow Airport Holdings, formerly BAA, on 18 January 2013, and the sale was completed for £1.5 billion on 28 February 2013. BAA had been required to sell the airport following a ruling originally made by the Competition Commission in March 2009.

Stansted Airport Reviews
★★★★☆

Stasted airport has lots of shops and a huge duty free but the queue at customs offices is too long, I risked to miss the bus to London, and gates from 50 to 59 are situated at about 15 minutes walk from shops area
★☆☆☆☆

If i didn't know that i would fly a plane that day, i will thought that i was in a Shopping mall. The airport was very crowded, deffinetly not gonna fly on this airport again.

I guess that the 'cattle grids' in Arrivals do serve a purpose, but it makes for quite a walk to get to the retina scan machines!
★★★★☆

Haven't flown from Stansted for several years now and pleased to see a somewhat marked improvement under the ownership of Manchester Airports. Car parking still involves the bendy busses taking you on their very own magical mystery tour!
★★★★☆
4 5 1
You can access free wi-fi for 4 hours, there are plugs (UK/USB/European styles) but if you have a transit, you need to go out and check in again and they are very strict with the security.
★★★★★

If it wasn't such a mission to get too (the other side of London), I'd love it more. But everything is made effortless, especially as the majority of people traffic are frequent travellers, security is speedy. Plenty of options in Duty Free for shopping and eating.
★☆☆☆☆

Stansted airport is my last choice when travelling to and from London. Gate is information is always late and often incorrect. The airport is always overcrowded and passengers are treated like cattle
★★★★★

The past occasions I've used Stansted has been mid-afternoon or evening flights, where the airport is a lot quieter, however this occasion was a early morning flight, and as expected, was very busy indeed in security, then follows the meander thru duty free to the departures area. Mercifully Weatherspoons was fairly quiet, nice place to enjoy breakfast and while away the time before your boarding gate is announced. My return wasn't so smooth, with everyone ushered to the automatic passport gates military style, and only about 10 out of 30(!!) of them working. We were all frog marched through endless queing lanes before being told which gate to stand at. Thankfully the E-Gates seemed more effective than other E-gates ive had the misfortune to use before.
★★☆☆☆

The usual crap passport control, with six of the 24 gates being o o u. It took two goes at number 13 before I was sent to another gate (number). That didn't work either, so I was 'let out' by a human instead. The UK Borders woman I tried to complain to was rude and indifferent "Get on a HM government, not me". Also late off the aircraft (10 minutes) due to nobody being there to open the gate for an on time arrival.
★★★☆☆
3 5 1
After placing more than 5 pounds in the parking machine turned out to be broken. Voice behind the help button not helpful at all not offering a refund option(just pointed to use another machine considering it's absolutely normal to just pay one more although not the customer fault).
