Built on a Roman burial site more than 2,000 years old and originally founded to aid the Second World War effort in 1943 until it was claimed by the British Airports Authority in 1966, Stansted was commercially developed with the goal of escaping the higher costs associated by operating from the larger airports in London, and also to relieve congestion from Heathrow and Gatwick in the future. Nowadays it caters to many travelers looking for affordable flights into Europe, and also acts as a major freight airport for the UK.
