London Stansted Airport has released images for its planned new £130m arrivals terminal that is scheduled to open in 2020.
The rendering comprises aerial views of the terminal entrance and plaza style forecourt, along with pictures inside the spacious immigration and baggage reclaim areas.
Architect firm Pascall+Watson, which was selected as designer of the Terminal in March this year, designed the latest concepts.
The company developed the designs for the new terminal and reconfiguration of the existing building into a dedicated departures facility in collaboration with Ramboll and Mott MacDonald.
London Stansted transformation director Paul Willis said: “The Arrivals Terminal is the centrepiece project of our £600m transformation programme and these latest images really whet the appetite of what the new and improved London Stansted Airport will look like when the facility opens in 2020.
“Our five-year multi-million-pound project will transform the experience for millions of passengers and help unlock the airport’s spare runway capacity, providing passengers with a wider choice of airlines and destinations.”
The first phase of the transformation is currently underway and includes a new check-in zone, a new 350-seat restaurant and new short-stay car parks opening over the summer.
Ramboll Buildings director Scott Edgar said: “The Stansted Transformation Programme provides a fantastic opportunity to improve the performance of the existing assets in terms of passenger experience, commercial revenue, energy use and resilience, whilst also delivering innovative solutions in the design of the new infrastructure.”
Stansted Airport has welcomed nearly 27 million passengers during the last year.
The airport is currently capable of managing 35 million travellers per annum and is looking to increase its capacity to 43 million, subject to planning permission.
