Manchester Airport Group (MAG) buys London Stansted Airport for £1.5bn
In the big game of chess that is being played out with London’s airports, the latest move will be sure to have an impact on the outcome of the Davies Commission. Forty miles to the North East of London, Stansted is increasingly seen as a possible contender for the location of London’s new airport hub.
London Mayor Boris Johnson is known to be warming to the prospect of adding a second runway to Stansted, even as a short term fix to increase the city’s air traffic capacity.
Stansted’s new owner will now enter the affray and will add yet another vector to the debate.
MAG’s views on the subject will no doubt emerge soon…
