Manchester sees numbers continue to grow

Posted 14 August 2017 · Add Comment

Manchester Airport, the only airport in the UK with two runways apart from London Heathrow, grew 7.4% year on year to handle more than 3million passengers in July.

It has now seen a record 27 million people pass through its three terminals in the last 12 months.



The airport recently welcomed the Secretary of State, the Rt Hon Chris Grayling MP, to see work start on its £1 billion transformation programme which will allow it to serve more passengers in its terminals and make fuller use of its current runway capacity.

Manchester Airport is also playing an increasingly important role in international trade, as more direct long-haul route connections to destinations like Beijing, Singapore, Houston and Muscat led to cargo growth of 20.6% year-on-year.
