The first phase of Stansted Airport's new £80 million departure lounge has opened to passengers.
It sees an expanded duty free and shopping area which has created around 200 new jobs.
Speaking at the opening, M.A.G Chief Executive Charlie Cornish said: "When M.A.G acquired Stansted last year we set out a clear vision to return the airport to growth and improve services and facilities for our passengers. We are making great progress on our £260 million investment programme at Stansted and with the airport once again the fastest growing airport in London, the time to invest in change couldn't be better."
"The multi-million pound transformation of the terminal building signifies a real turning point in the history of Stansted Airport and I'm delighted to officially mark the completion of the first phase of the new international departure lounge and hope this gives our passengers a glimpse of what the future holds."
The airport says the next stage of the development will be a new Escape Lounge in early 2015, located directly below the main departures area and overlooking the airfield. This will be followed in spring 2015 by the arrival of an expanded range of places to eat.
