Agents are being invited to a travel show staged by Stansted later this month.

The event in Cambridge on November 28 follows the airport winning local council approval to grow to 43 million passengers a year.

The airport’s second travel show aims to showcase the 200 global routes served from Stansted and provide networking opportunities.

The Essex airport has secured six new carriers including Emirates, Wideroe and Air Corsica since the last event in February.

They will be represented along with other partner airlines such as British Airways, Ryanair, easyJet and Eurowings at the newly renovated University Arms Hotel in Cambridge.

Agents attending will hear about the airport’s latest developments and news about new routes, services and the latest on its £600 million redevelopment which will prepare the airport to accommodate up to half of London’s expected passenger growth.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to discuss corporate airport packages and meet airline representatives to learn about new products and services.

The show will also have a range of prizes from partners including flights, designer bags and the latest technology, along with complimentary refreshments and entertainment.

Aviation marketing manager Neringa Ohrstrom said: “The first London Stansted airport travel show was a huge success with over 200 guests in attendance and positive feedback from agents and airlines alike.

“November’s event will build on that success, moving to a bigger venue to accommodate the expected number of attendees.

“Travel trade stakeholders are hugely important to us and by sharing our exciting growth plans and our vision of a pioneering, technology-led airport experience for passengers, we can build and maintain key relationships between the airport, airlines, agents, buyers and corporate travel managers. It is also an opportunity for us to thank everyone for their involvement with the impressive airport growth we have recorded recently.”
