Stansted welcomes first retailers to new international departure lounge

Stansted Airport has revealed the retail travel brands that that will open in the first phase of the multi-million pound redevelopment of its international departure lounge.

World Duty Free, WH Smith and Dixons Travel will open within a fortnight while Boots, Rituals, The Body Shop, Glorious Britain, Fat Face and JD Sports will all begin trading in the next few weeks.

The new departure lounge is part of an £80 million project to improve services and facilities for passengers using the terminal.  The development will also include an additional 16 retail stores covering fashion, shoes, accessories and luxury goods, and a new ‘Escape Lounge’ off the main departure lounge which any passenger will be able to pre-book irrespective of the airline they are travelling with. 

Acquired by MAG last year, London Stansted is the fourth largest airport in the UK and handles over 18 million passengers a year.

Beth Brewster, retail director for MAG, said: “I’m delighted to finally unveil the leading retail travel brands that have secured their position in the first phase of this multi-million pound development and to give our passengers and airline partners a glimpse of what the future looks like.   

“Stansted has a very exciting future.  We’ve already announced the line-up of cafés, bars and restaurants that will sit together in a dedicated area and are about to go out to tender to fill the remaining retail units scheduled to open next year.”
