Manchester Airport transformation program gains planning consent

Airport operator Manchester Airports Group (MAG) has been granted planning consent for its 10-year, £1bn (US$1.4bn) transformation program for Manchester Airport in northwest England in the UK.

The project is a series of 60 enhancements including the expansion and reconfiguring of Terminal 2 (T2); improvements for Terminal 3 (T3); the introduction of new and enlarged airside transfer facilities including direct linkage between T2 and T3; the construction of a US pre-clearance facility; a new, enlarged security hall; the introduction of self-service check-in facilities; 50 new food and beverage and retail outlets; new stands and piers; and an improved access road system to and from the airport.

Brad Miller, transformation program director, Manchester Airport, said, “Everyone at Manchester Airport is delighted that a significant piece of our £1bn (US$1.4bn) transformation program has been given planning consent. This means work can truly begin on the project, which over the next decade will see the airport continue to develop as a global gateway for the UK, directly to and from the North.

“The enhancements the project will make will enable us to further adapt, modernize and transform the customer service experience we are able to offer passengers and airlines. It will also allow Manchester Airport to continue in its role as job creator and economic provider for Greater Manchester and the wider region.”
