Facilities at Stansted Airport

Stansted has a single terminal, whose glass and steel construction give a light and spacious feel. It houses both arrivals and departures.

Inside the terminal, catering and retail facilities are conveniently located and there is a shared lounge departure lounge for both international and domestic passengers once they have cleared security and passport checks.

There is a wide variety of restaurants, cafes and bars at the airport. You can choose between a quick snack and a coffee or a more substantial meal. Children are welcome in all the catering outlets and in many cases children's menus are available. The price of all food and drink sold in BAA airports is matched with the UK high street.

There are a large number and wide range of shops for you to browse whilst waiting for your flight. You would be able to replace almost anything that you may have forgotten and stock up on duty free goods. As with many airports, the hotels at the airport are fairly standard. If your timetable allows then booking into a central London hotel might be more pleasurable.
