Stansted passengers face walking over a kilometre

Stansted Airport

Passengers at Stansted Airport face the longest walk from check-in to departure according to a new survey.

At the Essex airport travellers face a walk of over a kilometre or three quarters of a mile. At Luton Airport they may have to walk up to 822 metres or 900 yards.

Travel organisation Abta say many travellers who have difficulty walking only request assistance once they arrive at the airport, which may be too late.

This can lead to them having to make their way across terminals on foot or miss their flight.
