APH compares the cost of food at Stansted Airport

Once you’re through airport security you’re stuck. There’s no going back. If you’ve never travelled from a particular airport it’s hard to know what shops will be available air- or land-side. Add to that the vast difference in price between the different food outlets and you’ve got some serious confusion over where you can or should eat before the flight.

Some smart shopping beforehand could save a family of four up to £16.04 when purchasing four bottles of water, four sandwiches and four packets of crisps airside. For example at Stansted Airport if you bought this same meal at Est Bar it could cost as much as £31.56 or as little as £15.52 at Boots. Here’s our comparison of the different food outlets air- and land-side at Stansted Airport so that you know what the expect and where’s best for you to buy your pre-flight food.
