Mach-SmartAccess® welcomes first passengers into new security search area as part of £80million terminal transformation at Stansted Airport.

Stansted Airport’s £80million terminal transformation project reached its latest milestone today (Dec 6) when the first section of the new security search area opened to passengers. The first phase of the project has seen the security area relocated away from its ‘landlocked’ central location to a new area twice the size and flooded with natural light on the south side of the terminal building
 

20 self-service smart access gates will scan boarding cards before passengers enter the new security screening area as part of the airport’s drive to improve the passenger experience.

 

The security area is due to be fully operational by Christmas following the launch of the transformation project in June this year by the Transport Secretary, Patrick McLoughlin.

The project is part of a major investment by Stansted Airport’s new owners, M.A.G, to transform the terminal by making better use of existing space and provide passengers with new security facilities and an enlarged departure lounge.
