Stansted Airport: Ryanair set to increase passengers

17 September 2013 Last updated at 16:15 BST

Budget airline Ryanair has revealed plans to increase its passenger numbers through Stansted Airport from 13 million last year to nearly 21 million by 2023.

The Dublin-based operation already serves 140 destinations from the Essex airport and has added three more in Europe and one in north Africa for next summer.

The announcement comes six months after Manchester Airport Group (MAG), bought the airport.

The Stop Stansted Expansion campaign group called the plans "irresponsible" and "opportunistic".
