London Stadium flying high with new London Stansted Airport partnership

London Stadium partners with London Stansted

London Stadium has today announced a new multi-year partnership with London Stansted Airport, part of the Manchester Airports Group (MAG).

The partnership highlights the shared links from London Stadium, a premier sporting and entertainment venue in the east of London, and London Stansted Airport.

A direct coach route from the Stadium location in Stratford transports customers to Stansted in as little as 37 minutes, with four Stansted Express trains per hour from nearby Liverpool St adding access for travellers across east London and beyond.

Graham Gilmore, CEO of London Stadium, said: “It is a great pleasure to announce this partnership and welcome London Stansted Airport, a nearby major international airport with excellent transport links to our home in Stratford.

“We have a shared vision to do more, do things differently, and do them better, while providing the best possible experiences for our visitors.

“It is an incredibly exciting time to add London Stansted Airport to our growing list of premium partners, with the Stadium summer events just around the corner.”

Gareth Powell, Managing Director of London Stansted Airport, said: “We’re delighted to announce our exciting new partnership with London Stadium, bringing together London’s fastest growing major airport, with the iconic home of the London 2012 Olympics that now sits at the heart of the transformational regeneration of Stratford and the surrounding areas.

“London Stansted is the second biggest port of entry for visitors to London, so as the closest major international airport to the Stadium and with quick and direct public transport links, we will provide convenient, easy and affordable access to thousands of people every year wishing to visit London Stadium plus the shops, restaurants, offices and university close by.

“This partnership will not only give London Stansted a global profile at major sporting and entertainment events, it will also cement our commitment to continuing our work in the local area, helping provide jobs plus skill and training opportunities for people wishing to join us at the airport.”
