Thousands of passengers are expected to travel from Stansted Airport this Easter to one of the 35 destinations that services from this location offers.

Around a quarter of a million people are anticipated to pass through the facility's doors this coming weekend.

Despite the economic downturn, Brits are still keen to get away, explained commercial and development director at the airport Nick Barton.

Numerous travellers will be packing their bags to escape to such destinations as France, Spain, Croatia, Dubai and Malaysia, he continued to note.

Consumers want to "enjoy a cultural city break, take to the piste one last time or relax in the first rays of the summer sun," Mr Barton commented.

He concluded the airport is looking forward to welcoming passengers over the next few days, adding that would-be holidaymakers who have not yet decided where to go can find out flight information on the airport's website.

Anyone who wants to drive to Stansted Airport and use its car parking facilities while they are away on their jolly jaunt can find out how to get their by logging on to its site as well.
