World Duty Free Group launches biggest UK store at Stansted

Stansted Airport has officially opened its new international departure lounge with the launch of World Duty Free Group’s new flagship store.

The new store is World Duty Free Group’s largest in terms of retail space. Other brands to take space within the departure lounge include WH Smith, Boots, Dixons Travel, Glorious Britain, JD Sports, Rituals, Fat Face and Next.

This latest phase of the development has created an extra 250 full and part-time jobs.

Speaking at Stansted Airport, MAG chief executive Charlie Cornish said: "When MAG acquired Stansted last year we set out a clear vision to return the airport to growth and improve services and facilities for our passengers.

"We are making great progress on our £260 million investment programme at Stansted and with the airport once again the fastest growing airport in London, the time to invest in change couldn’t be better.”

The next major milestone in the transformation of the airport will be the opening of a new Escape Lounge in early 2015. This will be followed by the arrival of more food and beverage brands in the spring.

Completion of the overall project will be in the autumn of next year when a further 16 new retail units will be opened which will include a mix of high end fashion, accessories, footwear, lingerie and gifting.
