London Stansted Airport in the UK has served 25 million passengers in a year for the first time in its history. To help celebrate reaching the major landmark, two holidaymakers were surprised with two free flights with Ryanair from the airport.
The lucky passengers were Millie Hughes from Braintree and Thea Towers from Chelmsford who were delighted to be presented with a pair of return tickets with Ryanair to any destination on their route network.
Towers said, “We are truly gobsmacked to be Stansted’s 25 millionth passengers, and to win two free flights has really made this a brilliant day and a fantastic way to start our week away.”
Andrew Cowan, Stansted Airport’s CEO, said, “To welcome 25 million passengers to Stansted in the last year is a fantastic achievement and a clear reflection of the significant and sustained growth we have experienced at the airport in the four years under MAG’s ownership.
“I’d like to thank all 25 million passengers for choosing Stansted in the last 12 months and for helping us achieve this historic milestone, and our highly successful and valued airline partners for driving the growth through their commitment to the airport. I’d also like to pay tribute to our hard-working and loyal staff who have all played their part in helping make Stansted the huge success story it is today.”
