Cheap Flights to Stansted

Stansted overview

Stansted Airport is a popular choice for travellers looking to find cheap flights to London. It is home for low-cost carrier Ryanair, which serves more than 100 destinations from the airport.

The most popular flights out of Stansted Airport are to European holiday destinations such as Dublin, Alicante, Malaga, Rome, Faro and Palma de Mallorca. However, you can also access some interesting, more out-of-the-way places from Stansted – so get creative next time you're planning a break.

A highly functional, efficient airport – enjoyed as much by business passengers as those travelling with families in tow – Stansted Airport is a lovely gateway to the United Kingdom's most important city. Last year, the airport handled nearly 19 million passengers. Expect that figure to rise, as hordes of tourists descend on London for the 2012 Olympic Games.
