It's the fourth busiest airport in the UK, and is usually a hive of activity. But new pictures show how the Covid-19 pandemic is having an impact.
London Stansted has released drone footage showing how it is managing to find parking spaces for almost 100 aircraft which have been grounded after the outbeak.
Reduced flying, meant that an Essex Police drone, based at Stansted, was able to safely grab a bird’s-eye view of the airfield at a time which would normally be the peak of the flying day.
The footage shows almost all of the airport’s passenger stands occupied by aircraft.
Stansted isn't alone with this problem. British Airways decided to land some of its aircraft at Norwich Airport after it started to suspend flights.
There is still some work going on though, despite most airlines suspending almost all passenger operations, they are carrying out essential maintenance on their aircraft .
