From the Press Re LAX AND BOS...

Travellers in the north of England have been handed a boost after Thomas Cook Airlines announced two new routes from Manchester to Los Angeles and Boston.

The airline, Manchester’s biggest long-haul carrier, will launch the services in May 2016. Both will operate twice a week using its Airbus A330 aircraft. Tickets go on sale this week, with returns starting at £299 for Boston and £399 for Los Angeles.

The move will see Manchester become the only UK city outside of London with direct flights to both US cities. It will make trips to both destinations a much easier proposition for travellers in the north of England, who currently must fly indirect via London, another US city such as New York, or a European hub such as Paris or Amsterdam.

Thomas Cook also plans to increase the frequency of its other transatlantic services from Manchester. From next year it will raise the number of flights to both Las Vegas and New York to six a week, while Orlando will be served daily during 2016’s peak summer period

Beloved airport cat Olly takes her final journey - and tributes pour in from all over the world...

Slipping away at 10pm on Tuesday during one last cuddle from her devoted owner, ginger moggy Olly - or Olivia - succumbed to a lung infection

A cat adopted by staff after wandering into an airport eight years ago has died - sparking tributes from across the world.


Olly wandered into the airport in 2007, a one-eared collarless stray with no home to call her own.

She was named Olly after Olympic House - the airport’s main office block - where she sheltered in a kennel outside, built by kind staff.

She was loved by staff and passengers alike, acquiring more than 1,500 friends on Facebook and even having a plane named after her.

She was the darling of adoring pilots and air attendants receiving food parcels from far-flung corners of the globe.

In 2011, Olly, who was originally thought to be male, even received postcards from a mystery pen-friend.

Her airport career ended in 2011, when she was moved to her new South Manchester home with owner Jennifer - but her legacy lives on.

Manchester Airport to open New York City branch to offer expertise stateside...

And it has appointed Rosemarie Andolino – named in top ‘30 most compelling women in the travel industry’ – as CEO of the US branch

The company that runs Manchester Airport is expanding stateside, by offering its expertise to north American airports and opening a New York office.

Manchester Airports Group (MAG), which is part-owned by Manchester taxpayers and also operates Stansted, East Midlands and Bournemouth airports, is setting up an office in New York City as a base to bring in business from June.

The new team will be managed by Rosemarie Andolino who will take up the new role of chief executive officer and president of Manchester Airports Group US branch.

She will oversee the development of MAG’s airport services business in North America.

MAG US will work with airports to develop and operate terminal improvements and shopping facilities, passenger lounges and car parking services.

Their CV includes an ongoing £260m redevelopment of Stansted, a £12m terminal revamp at East Midlands and the recent £3.5m security lane upgrade at Manchester.

MAG has also proved its skill in the retail arena, this year opening Pork and Pickle, the Lion and Antelope in Terminal 3 and the Spinning Jenny in Manchester’s Terminal two.

Charlie Cornish, group chief executive of MAG, said: “I am delighted to welcome Rosemarie to the business and am confident that she will be the driving force in building a successful airport services business for MAG in North America.

“The combination of Rosemarie’s experience of major U.S aviation projects and MAG’s existing expertise drawn from its running of four UK airports, makes me confident that we will have a unique offering for the North American market.

“MAG has transformed the airports under its ownership, both from an operational and financial perspective. Since acquiring Stansted just over two years ago, we have invested in creating a new passenger experience and turned it into the fastest growing major airport in the UK.

“Much of this success has been driven by our unique ownership structure that has enabled us to work closely with both public and private investors to deliver airports that truly serve the regions in which they operate.”

Rosemarie Andolino brings more than 12 years experience in international airport management.

As Chicago Department of Aviation Commissioner - overseeing O’Hare and Midway International Airports - she was in charge of the world’s busiest airport system, handling over a million flights, 87m passengers with an operating budget of £1bn every year.

She said: “I am delighted to be appointed CEO and president of MAG US. MAG has impeccable credentials for the ownership and operation of airports in key markets.

“The airport industry in North America is going through a period of transition and MAG is well placed to play a significant role in supporting airports develop new and improved facilities for passengers and airlines.

“I very much look forward to building on the success that MAG has enjoyed to date.”

It is not yet known how many staff will be based in New York or the income expected from the new branch of business.

MAG currently serves 48 million passengers through its ownership and operation of four UK airports: Manchester, London Stansted, East Midlands and Bournemouth.

MAG is privately managed on behalf of its shareholders.

Manchester City Council and the nine Greater Manchester Councils own a combined 64.5pc with Australian fund manager IFM Investors owning the remaining 35.5pc.

Manchester Airport passenger numbers have continued to grow, with nearly 30,000 more people using the airport during April 2015 than the same month last year.

Etihad Aircraft Change...

As from 1st June EY will operate all services from MAN using 77W, (at the moment one service is 77w one A330) This of course will also mean increased capacity on the route.

Regus Express Hub opens at Hilton Manchester Airport ...

Regus opens new generation workplace in hotel

Regus, the global workspace provider, has opened one of its innovative Regus Express locations at Hilton Manchester Airport. The new generation workplace, part of the expanding Regus network in the North West, offers local firms and people working on the move a working environment that suits their ever-more flexible working lifestyles.

This is only the second Regus Express to be opened in a hotel location and it brings a new dimension to Hilton Manchester Airport’s existing range of meeting and conference facilities. The site features a drop-in business lounge with individual workstations called Thinkpods, comfortable seats with laptop stands and phone chargers, as well as free, secure Wi-Fi. Additionally, a suite of high specification meeting rooms seating two to four people are available to book by the hour.

Demand for ‘third place’ work locations is growing steadily, driven by increasing mobility and the rise of remote, flexible and multi-location working. Research from Regus shows that 40% of UK workers spend at least 2.5 days per week working outside of their main office. Similarly, a third of UK employers are offering their staff more flexible working options. Technology makes it possible to ‘work anywhere’, yet most people prefer an office-style environment to remain productive, motivated and disciplined.

Users of Regus Express at Hilton Manchester Airport will include hotel guests; business travellers; local and national businesses using the facility as a convenient meeting point; and local home-workers seeking a refreshing alternative to working from home.

The launch of Regus Express at Hilton Manchester Airport is part of a wider roll-out of Regus ‘third place’ locations around the UK, which caters to the flexible working trend. These sites are designed to offer a more professional and motivating environment than a home office, as well as a more cost-effective alternative to a traditional fixed office.

Richard Morris, UK CEO at Regus, comments: “The opening of our second hotel location testifies to the need for bespoke and dedicated business spaces that match today’s flexible workforce. We know that more and more people are working flexibly, instead of the traditional 9-5 in the office, and we are seeing month-on-month growth in interest in Regus Express as retailers, transport operators and universities all switch on to the commercial opportunity presented by the mobile work and business travel market.

“We are confident that this latest site will prove popular with business travellers and local firms alike.”

The Regus Express network in Britain already covers motorway service areas, retail parks, shopping centres and airports.

The Regus Express workplace will be located at Hilton Hotel, Manchester Airport, Outwood Lane, Manchester, M90 4WP

There are two ways to access Regus Express centres:
• Pay-as-you-go access priced at £5 per hour or £10 per day.
• Regus Businessworld membership at £35 per month, which provides drop-in access to the business lounges at each of Regus’ 320 UK locations including Regus Express.

"Fly Manchester to Bournemouth – City to seaside in just ONE hour"...

Quote:
Flybe passengers take to the sky on the very first flight between Manchester and Bournemouth as the airline launches new twice-daily route

The first flight from Manchester to Bournemouth with Flybe took off this morning.

The new year-round service will fly twice daily each way during the week with one return flight a day at weekends.

Flybe announced the route last month along with a new peak-season Saturday flight to Bergerac in France, to start in July.

Combined, they take the airline’s offering to 22 routes, with 359 flights a week.

Paul Simmons, Flybe’s chief commercial officer, said: “We’re hugely excited to be launching our new service to Bournemouth today and we’re looking forward to welcoming all our new passengers onboard.

"It plays a key role in further growing and expanding our regional connectivity. This is sure to be an attractive route.

"It gives business passengers fast and convenient options to travel for meetings from both Manchester and Bournemouth and, for Manchester leisure travellers, to discover and explore one of the UK’s most popular seaside resorts.

"We also expect Bournemouth passengers to take full advantage of the opportunities for the many onward connections offered from our Manchester hub."

Stephen Turner, commercial director at Manchester Airport added: “It is pleasing to see Flybe launch a service to Bournemouth from Manchester Airport, the UK’s global gateway from the North.

“With over 22 million people living within our two-hour catchment, two full-length runways and all-time record passenger numbers, Manchester Airport has, and will continue to have, the available capacity and demand to meet the needs of our catchment that extends as far north as Scotland and South to the Midlands.”

One way fares start at £29.99.

Living the American Dream: Manchester Airport's flights to the US booming...

Thousands of passengers hop over the pond for holidays and business

More than 400,000 passengers will fly from Manchester to America this summer - and Manchester’s routes to the USA just keep on coming.

Thanks to new routes, bigger aircraft and boosted frequency, there has been a 10 per cent increase in seats to North America this year.

In just the first four months of 2015, more than 360,000 passengers flew between Manchester and North America - with Orlando the most popular destination attracting 100,000 passengers.

And new partners Delta and Virgin Atlantic are part of the new wave of flights - this month launching a daily route to New York JFK.

Other new routes include Thomas Cook’s twice-weekly flight to Miami, launched in May, and three-weekly JFK service.

And Thomas Cook are also preparing to launch flights to Los Angeles and Boston next May - taking their total US destinations to six.

Delta and Virgin also fly to Atlanta, launched in March, and Orlando and Las Vegas.

It takes the total weekly peak summer season August flights to north America to 108 a week, up on 100 last year.

It means Manchester Airport has the second highest number of scheduled flights to the US after Heathrow.

Manchester is also the only UK airport other than Heathrow to offer scheduled flights to Atlanta, Washington and Miami.

Launching on May 22, the new Delta Airlines and Virgin Atlantic Airways joint route on a Boeing 757-200 to JFK will give travellers the chance to connect to 60 onward destinations in America.

This route alone adds 2,300 weekly seats between Manchester and New York both ways.

It follows the partnership’s new route to Atlanta launched in March, taking over from the Delta-only service and boosting capacity by 26 per cent to that destination.

Nadia Clinton, Delta’s UK Sales Manager told the M.E.N: “Manchester is an important market for us and we want to make sure we capitalise on that.

“JFK remains the biggest business market in the world, we recognise it’s important to have a presence in Manchester.”

Shining a light on the popularity of the USA, she added: “America is a very popular destinations, it always has been.

“The language plays a huge part and the diversity and leisure, plus it appeals to families.”

She said around 14 per cent of their passengers fly for business reasons.

Delta has been at the airport for 30 years but the JFK route has been reinstated after it fell victim to the financial crash. It teamed up with Virgin Atlantic last year.

Not only are flights flourishing stateside, but the company that runs Manchester Airport is expanding that way too - offering its expertise to north American airports.

Manchester Airports Group (MAG), which is part-owned by Manchester taxpayers and also operates Stansted, East Midlands and Bournemouth airports, is setting up an office in New York City as a base to bring in business from June.

The new team will be managed by Rosemarie Andolino who will take up the new role of chief executive officer and president of Manchester Airports Group US branch.

She will oversee the development of MAG’s airport services business in North America.

MAG US will work with airports to develop and operate terminal improvements and shopping facilities, passenger lounges and car parking services.

Manchester City Council and the nine Greater Manchester Councils own a combined 64.5pc with Australian fund manager IFM Investors owning the remaining 35.5pc.

Manchester Airport passenger numbers have continued to grow, with nearly 30,000 more people using the airport during April 2015 than the same month last year.

Austrian announce MAN-VIE...

Quote:
AUSTRIAN Airlines is to launch once-a-day flights from Manchester to Vienna in September

Starting on September 10 the new service will start in addition the airline’s 28 weekly flights to London.

The new flight service to one of Europe’s most frequently visited cities comprises an optimal offering for local flight traffic to connect Manchester with the Austrian business location.

Vienna is an international congress and conference venue and continues to be ranked as the city with the best quality of life.

Austrian Airlines claims to offer the best possible transfer connections to the federal provinces of Austria as well as to Central and Eastern Europe.

The airline will operate a Fokker aircraft on the Manchester-Vienna route. On balance, with Manchester and London, Austria’s national carrier now offers direct flight service to British destinations up to five times daily.

Stephen Turner, commercial director at Manchester Airport, said: “It is pleasing to see Austrian Airlines launch a service to Vienna from Manchester Airport, the UK’s global gateway from the North.

“With more than 22m people living within our two hour catchment, two full length runways and all-time record passenger numbers, Manchester Airport has, and will continue to have, the available capacity and demand to meet the needs of our catchment that extends as far north as Scotland and South to the Midlands.
