Stansted flower power

Stansted Airport played cupid as 200 tonnes of flowers arrived in preparation for Valentine’s Day.
Freighters have flown in tens of thousands of roses from Kenya and Colombia into the UK hub.
Stansted handles around 230,000 tonnes of freight per year on 11,000 cargo flights to and from 200 countries including textiles, fruit and vegetables, flowers, electronics, pharmaceuticals, mail, race-horses and Formula One equipment.
Graeme Ferguson, cargo director at MAG, which includes Stansted, said: “The airport is a key port of entry for time sensitive goods such as fresh fruit, vegetables and flowers from the major exporting nations in South America and Africa on scheduled freighter services operated by carriers including Martinair, Cargolux, Panalpina and ANA Airline Management.”
