London Stansted Airport has revealed stylish new passenger seating and created three brand new seating areas in its busy departure lounge, increasing capacity by 40%.

One of the areas is completely made from Green Furniture’s Nova C seating and acoustic lights.

The improvements, which are part of the ongoing £600m Stansted Transformation Project, have created a more attractive and comfortable seating area with room for over 1,000 passengers in the main departure lounge area. This includes 436 new USB and USC charging points. Leaf Lamp Metal Trees around the area provide ambient lighting while helping to absorb sound using felt ‘foliage’.

A dedicated family seating area has been created within the departure lounge, offering groups travelling with younger children smaller and colourful bench seating from Nova C Kids.

Head of terminal operations Linsey Miller said: “We are delighted with the fresh look of the main departure lounge and, most importantly, I’m confident passengers will also be very pleased with the changes we have made. It has updated the area and offers much-needed additional seating and device charging points, while the curved design and layout of the furniture means passengers feel a sense of space while seated.”
