Stansted Airport has today launched a new campaign to improve rail links to the airport.

Senior managers say faster and more reliable rail services could help to attract at least an extra 1.4 million passengers a year to use the airport.

The main aims of the campaign are to cut journey times to London to 30 minutes and extend the Crossrail service to Stansted.

The airport's ambition is to become the best connected air-rail hub in the UK
