Adding capacity to where it’s needed
With slot congestion at London Heathrow an ever-present problem, airlines have been seeking ways to increase coverage in the London are – be it going to Gatwick or Stansted.
Stansted’s location – north east of London – does offer access to London area, as well as Essex and Cambridgeshire – accessing the academic, pharmaceutical and business communities in the area.
For Emirates, it’s extra capacity deployed to possible high-value customers… and that’s where the attractiveness of a second daily services lies – along with the connection opportunities that the catchment area offers.
