Manchester Airport is 80 years old
Henbury Parish Council recently received a regular update from the airport with all the latest news. You can see all about their £1 billion transformation programme here. The work will continue until April 2024 and it will see Terminal 2 more than double in size to become the airport's main centre of gravity.
The new, enlarged terminal will have a range of state-of-the-art features and will be designed to deliver a smooth and seamless passenger experience.
On the airfield, work will be carried out to maximise the potential of Manchester's existing two runways, which have the capacity to handle 55m passengers a year.
Work will also see the taxiways remodelled to accommodate more of the world's largest aircraft, which will jet off to even more far flung destinations in the years to come.
As they continue to develop, they are proud to have launched and announced 34 new routes in the last year — details here
