Manchester Airports Group joins our transport panel at City Hall, London

All UK airports are increasingly having to compete with other cities worldwide for the business traveller and tourist, therefore plans to improve the 'destination' quality of airports is on the agenda.

Manchester Airport is being re-developed and will see the airport significantly expand and enhance its facilities, improving customer experience and positioning it as the global gateway for the North of England.

There will be a £570 million package of works, increasing Terminal 2's footprint by 150%, significant upgrades to the airport's landscaping and road infrastructure and a new international departure lounge with 50 food, beverage and retail outlets.
