London Stansted Airport

London Stansted Airport has revealed stylish new passenger seating and created three brand new seating areas in its busy Departure Lounge, which has increased capacity by 40 per cent. One of the areas is completely made from Green Furniture's Nova C seating and acoustic lights.

The improvements, part of the ongoing £600 million Stansted Transformation Project, have created a more attractive and comfortable seating area with room now for over 1000 passengers in the main Departure Lounge area and including 436 new USB and USC charging points. Leaf Lamp Metal Trees around the area provide ambient lighting while helping to absorb sound using felt ‘foliage’.

A dedicated family seating area has been created within the Departure Lounge, offering smaller and colourful children-friendly bench seating from Nova C Kids, for groups travelling with younger children.

“We are delighted with the fresh look of the main Departures Lounge and, most importantly, I’m confident passengers will also be very pleased with the changes we have made. It has updated the area and offers much-needed additional seating and device charging points, while the curved design and layout of the furniture means passengers feel a sense of space while seated."
