    • Airside Transit Query in Stansted

      by jeepsterboy Online Now Aug 19, 2016 at 12:16 AM

      Hi All, I hope someone can respond to this - many thanks!

      Very simply, I'm aiming to fly with Ryanair from Glasgow to Stansted, then pick up another Ryanair flight from Stansted to Cork. I'm travelling on an Irish passport, and I'll have hand luggage only.

      I have slightly overly 1.5 hours to do this, and my question is this: is it possible to stay 'in transit' and therefore disembark at Stansted, check the flight information board when I arrive for the Stansted to Cork departure gate, then make my way to that gate WITHOUT having to go thru immigration and re-circulating via security etc.?

      When I have disembarked (from other flights) via Stansted I have noticed a 'flight connections' sign, and assumed that that was in place for that very purpose, but I'm not entirely confident about this.

      Many thanks again.

      Days Inn Hotel London Stansted

      by christine.j Online Now Feb 27, 2005 at 6:53 AM

      I'm looking for a hotel or a B&B close to Stansted airport and came across the Days Inn Hotel.Does anyone know anything about it? I checked the Stansted forum here first, of course, but it wasn't mentioned when someone had asked about accomodation near the airport. Is it brand new? I think it used to be called Welcome Lodge. It seems to be quite close to the airport and with 60 GBP for a triple very reasonable.Is there any catch?
      I'd be thankful for any information.
