"Manchester Airport is to get a dramatic £1bn transformation",..

the M.E.N."...can reveal - with a super-sized terminal and faster high-tech security lanes".

Quote:
Said to be the biggest single construction project ever to take place in Greater Manchester, the 10-year scheme will more than double the size of Terminal Two and link it to an improved Terminal Three.

Ageing Terminal One will be demolished.

Meanwhile bosses aim to slash off-peak security queues to just five minutes.

Doubling the number of airport jobs to 40,000 within 30 years and adding 10m annual passengers in just a decade, the move bolsters Manchester’s battle for the government to recognise the true worth of regional airports and underlines Manchester Airport’s place at the heart of George Osborne’s ‘Northern Powerhouse’.

Among a range of high-tech changes will be a scheme to pre-clear American immigration in Manchester.

The latest technology will help passengers ‘flow’ through the airport, speeding up peak-time security from 15 to 10 minutes.

Passengers will have automatic bag-drops, and access to instant information on their phones.

There will be at least 50 food and drink outlets, more stands for aircraft and better links for connecting passengers.

The project is also aimed at attracting airlines and adding new long-haul routes to Asia and the east and west coasts of America.

Plans are now in the final stages and work is due to start next April, with a goal of Terminal Two completion by 2023.

By 2022, Terminal One, which was built in 1962, will be phased out.

By 2050, its hoped 55m passengers will use the hub every year, more than doubling the current 23m.

Charlie Cornish, chief executive of Manchester Airports Group, said: “Without doubt, with this level of investment Manchester will become one of the most modern and customer focused airports in Europe, demonstrating the importance of Manchester as a global gateway. It demonstrates that it’s more that just being about Heathrow or Gatwick.”

He described the revamp as a ‘modern facility geared around a high level of customer service, stress-free, hassle-free with modern technology and communication’.

He said HS2 and the east-west rail connections of HS3 were central to the scheme, adding: “We’re setting out how the airport will contribute to the development of a Northern Powerhouse and demonstrating the dynamic, can-do spirit that sums up the region.”

As M.A.G is part-owned by Manchester taxpayers, return from the investment will go directly into services.

Mr Cornish added: “In the long-term, the development not only creates jobs and therefore economic development for the region but in the longer term will lead to enhanced dividends falling down to shareholders.”

The £1bn project, funded by fast-tracking investment plans alongside borrowing, will include more than 60 changes all on the airport’s current footprint.

Mr Cornish promised ‘minimal disruption’ to passengers by working around terminal activity and only ‘knocking through’ at the 11th hour.

He vowed to work with the local community to mitigate disruption.

He said creating more car parking space was integral to the plans.

Manchester Airport, which already serves more than 70 airlines and 210 destinations, brings £1.8bn to the regional economy every year, employing 20,000 people and supporting a further 25,000 jobs.

It is already the only airport outside London with direct routes to Miami, Hong Kong, Jeddah, Singapore, Atlanta, Washington and Boston.

With current runway capacity, Manchester Airport has the potential to serve 55m passengers a year - at a time when capacity in the UK is at a premium.

Christian Seymour, from IFM Investors, 35.5pc shareholders in M.A.G, said: “As one of the largest airport operators in the UK, M.A.G has an outstanding track record of successful airport management.

“Since acquiring our stake just over two years ago, we have been delighted with the progress the Group has made in terms of implementing its capital investment plan and growing passengers and revenues. Of particular note is the turnaround M.A.G has achieved at London Stansted, transforming it into the fastest growing major airport in the country in just two years.

“M.A.G’s airports across the UK have a key role to play in meeting the country’s aviation capacity needs and today’s announcement is a strong signal of the company’s commitment and ambition to deliver on that.”

In summary: What the transformation will mean to Manchester Airport


- A transformed Terminal 2 expanded by 140 per cent with a direct link to a revamped Terminal 3 - taking potential passenger capacity from around 25m to 50m.
- New airside transfer facilities so passengers can walk directly from aircraft to terminal.
- Links so connecting passengers don’t have to leave the buildings.
- Improved and automated bag check-in and faster security.
- A new US pre-clearance facility so passengers can get through immigration, customs and agricultural inspection before boarding their flight.
- Around 50 food and drink outlets.
- More stands and piers for aircraft.
- Improved infrastructure around the airport with good links to the £800m Airport City.

What's good for the airport is good for Manchester


Sir Richard Leese, leader of Manchester city Council, says the Manchester Airport expansion will be the ‘biggest single construction project Greater Manchester has ever seen.”

He added: “Manchester Airport plays a vital economic role in the region in which it serves. Its annual passenger numbers last year topped a record 22 million and it provides jobs for 20,000 people on site and a further 25,000 indirectly.

“Greater Manchester and the rest of the North West is increasingly competing on an international stage and an airport that is better suited to serving these global aspirations will significantly improve the impact the region can have in attracting inward and outward investment, helping it to realise its full economic potential and create further jobs and opportunities.”

What the airlines say


Carolyn McCall, Chief Executive, easyJet said: “Manchester Airport’s vision offers a range of opportunities for easyJet which will directly benefit our passengers’ experience and our operations at the airport.

“easyJet is committed to long term growth at Manchester Airport and the programme offers us an excellent opportunity through which to achieve this over the next decade. We look forward to working closely with the airport to maximise the design and implementation from both an airline and passenger perspective.”

Laurie Berryman, Vice President UK, Emirates said: “Emirates is delighted that Manchester Airport is committing to the £1 billion redevelopment programme. Emirates will be celebrating 25 years at Manchester later this year and now operates three daily services to Dubai and beyond two of which are operated by the iconic Airbus A380.”

World News Agencies Now Picking up MAN Press Release...

"Manchester Hub Earmarks $1.5 Billion to Lure Long-Haul Airlines"


Quote:
Manchester Airport, the leading U.K. hub outside London, said it will spend 1 billion pounds ($1.5 billion) over the next 10 years on more than 60 upgrades aimed at broadening its appeal to the world’s long-haul airlines.

The investment program aims to expand Terminal 2 to become the airport’s main building, provide a direct link from there to Terminal 3 and establish the U.K.’s first facility for clearing U.S. customs before boarding.

Owner Manchester Airports Group will also develop extra plane stands, new screening technology and a bigger security hall, self-service check-in facilities and 50 food, drink and retail outlets. Road links to the airport will also be improved.

Chief Executive Officer Charlie Cornish said the changes will future-proof an airport that’s Britain’s third-busiest after London’s Heathrow and Gatwick hubs. They’ll also tap into government plans to build a “Northern Powerhouse” spanning several cities to re-balance an economy dominated by southeast England, spurred by projects such as High Speed 2 railway line.

“More and more people are going to be able to access Manchester and we need to be able to offer a whole host of business destinations,” Cornish said in an interview. The changes also aim to meet the demands of carriers spanning premium operator Emirates to discounter Ryanair Holdings Plc as they increasingly emphasize “customer experience,” he said.
LA Lined Up

Manchester’s passenger tally reached 22.3 million in the year through March, beating a record that stood for nine years after the financial slump clipped growth. Scope for expansion at Britain’s only two-runway airport alongside Heathrow remains huge, with a notional annual capacity of 55 million people.

The hub already has more routes than Gatwick, though the London base leads by passengers, with 38.1 million last year.

Manchester has this year added Miami and Hong Kong to its roster of long-haul destinations, with Boston and Los Angeles to follow next year when Thomas Cook Group Plc starts flights.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security on Friday listed Manchester and Heathrow as the only U.K. airports among 10 sites where it’s planning to establish preclearance facilities. The pre-boarding border checks, which could be in place in the “near term,” should help boost passenger numbers just as they have at Dublin Airport in Ireland, Cornish said.

The U.K. airport is also targeting direct services to Beijing, Mumbai and Bangkok and an increase in daily frequencies provided by Ryanair and other low-cost carriers, Managing Director Ken O’Toole said in April.

Manchester’s operations have been transformed since the previous passenger record was set, with full-service and low-cost airlines each accounting for 40 percent of traffic and once prevalent charter flights reduced to about 20 percent.

Gulf and Asian carriers operate a large chunk of long-haul flights, making up for a loss of custom from British Airways, which has reduced its presence to a London shuttle. Dubai-based Emirates has three daily flights, two of which are provided by Airbus Group NV A380 superjumbos.

MAG also owns the low-cost London Stansted hub, which lured about 20 million passengers in 2014. Cornish said it’s aiming to secure a full-service client to start flights in 2016.

"Airport starts design contest for £1bn transformation"..

Quote:
Manchester Airport has started the public tender process to appoint the design team for the ambitious 10-year expansion programme announced last week
Quote:
.

Separate invitations to tender have been published in the Official Journal of the European Union for architectural, engineering and overall project manager contracts.

As part of the selection process, Manchester Airport said it intends to hold an industry day on 16 June 2015 at 3pm at the Runway Visitor Park. Those wishing to attend the event should register their interest by emailing [email protected] for the attention of George Owens, director of procurement and contracts.

The contract notice describes the project: “It is intended that the Manchester Transformation Programme will position the airport as the Northern Gateway and create a modern transport hub. The MTP includes, but is not limited to: expansion of Terminal 2 building, three new piers including air bridges, new stands and taxiway developments, new multi-storey and surface car parks (to primarily replace displaced parking due to apron redevelopment), and the relocation of existing facilities. MTP is aimed at delivering light, bright, modern facilities with the ability to accommodate future growth in line with the MTP.”

Earlier this year, the airport appointed a new framework of architects: AHR, Pascall + Watson, Pick Everard. The previous framework for architecture services contained 5plus, Chapman Taylor, SBS and Leach Rhodes Walker. There was also a new project manager framework selected: Turner & Townsend, EC Harris, Jacobs. The new frameworks coincided with a change to the senior management team. In March, Jonathan Haigh, ex PwC director, joined as director of development management and infrastructure.

Meanwhile, an interim design team has been appointed to work on the transformation programme until December 2015. It is understood Turner & Townsend is advising the airport.

The deadline for expressions of interest is 3 July 2015.

"Direct link from Staffordshire to Manchester Airport on way"...

Quote:
Trains could run from Staffordshire direct to Manchester Airport under plans to boost transport links in the county

Bosses want services to go straight to the airport station, as currently passengers have to change at Manchester Piccadilly.

One of the ideas is extending London Midland routes that run through Stafford and terminate at Crewe.

Manchester Airport is seen as the main facility for Staffordshire residents rather than Birmingham. And council chiefs want to make it easier for people to get there.

They say it would improve business links and boost the county’s economy.

The idea is one of five aims that the council has set out to improve transport, though exact costs and timescales have not been drawn up.

A report by the council states: “Good connectivity to airports is key for Staffordshire’s economic wellbeing and hence forms one of the five objectives. Access to Manchester Airport from Staffordshire is currently relatively poor, with no direct services.

“The county council, along with other local authorities and partners, have been investigating various possibilities for the provision of a direct service to be provided from Staffordshire. This is also a key aim of the Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Local Enterprise Partnership.

“It is also regularly cited by the Chamber of Commerce as being an issue for business.

“Possible options include the extension of services currently operated by both East Midlands Trains and London Midland which currently terminate at Crewe.”

The report adds: “The council will continue to support the rail industry regarding improvements to the rail network to enable services to be improved in the future regardless of whether HS2 is built.

“The council, therefore, supports the improvements, some of which are located entirely outside of Staffordshire, as they will bring potential benefits to the county in the future.”

"More investment flying in to Airport City as US organisation backs shed...

Money put up to fund a 268,000 sq ft warehouse at Airport City"

Quote:
The US Automobile Association is putting up the money to fund a 268,000 sq ft warehouse at Airport City.

Through its Dutch subsidiary, and in a joint venture with Mountpark, the US AA will fund the 268,000 sq ft speculative development on an 11-acre plot.

Construction will begin immediately, with completion planned for January next year.

Birmingham-based Stoford has been appointed as the development manager to deliver the project.

Developers say the decision to launch a speculative scheme has been encouraged by a severe lack of available warehouse and distribution stock, the projects mark the start of what the two companies hope will be several developments where they work in partnership.

The north west logistics market is among the busiest in Europe.

Already this week, Dominvs Group, the real estate investment, development and asset management company, has let a 61,400 sq ft unit at Walker Park in Blackburn, to Vision Support Services Group Ltd.

Ian Mudge, commercial property director at Dominvs Group, said: “There is very limited stock for units of around 50,000 sq ft along the M65 and when these do become available they attract strong interest, as has been shown here.

“We have just one remaining unit available of about 48,000 sq ft which is now under offer.”

CBRE and Taylor Weaver advised Dominvs Group and Vision Support Services Ltd was represented by B8 Real Estate.

In a separate move, B8 Real Estate sold the former five acre site occupied by F&G Commercials, which has since moved to a new-state-of-the-art 12-acre site with 200,000 sq ft transit warehouse at Alba Way Trafford Park.

Knight Frank acted jointly with B8 Real Estate for AKW Group Plc. F&G Commercials represented themselves

Emirates and Flybe sign codeshare deal...

Emirates and Flybe have announced a codeshare agreement.

The deal, which is expected to take effect next month, will see the Gulf airline's EK code added to 25 Flybe routes in the UK.

Subject to regulatory approval, the move will add 13 new destinations, including Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Newquay, to the Emirates network.

All Flybe flights will connect with Emirates' services to Dubai from the latter's Manchester, Glasgow and Birmingham gateways.

Emirates passengers travelling on Flybe will have the same luggage allowance they are entitled to on Emirates and will receive boarding passes on check-in at their first international departure point for connecting international services.

Luxury jet company NetJets Europe launches new plane at Manchester Airport

"Alastair Fox, vice president at NetJets Europe, said: “NetJets has always been well-received in Manchester and the airport here is a key location for us to serve our customers based in the north west.”"

"Manchester Airport smashes passenger numbers record - AGAIN !"

Quote:
More than two million passengers passed through the airport in May, which puts hun on target to break 23m annual passenger mark by 2016

Manchester Airport passenger numbers have grown again - smashing previous records for the country’s third biggest hub.

More than two million passengers travelled through last month - despite early competition exits for north-west football teams reducing the number of travelling fans.

A total of 2,093,391 people travelled through in May 2015, up from 2,036,410 in the same period last year - a 2.8 per cent boost.

Quote:
It moves the rolling annual total to 22,406,306 – an increase of 6.21 pc year-on-year – and the most ever for Manchester Airport.
Quote:
And it sets the airport on target to break the 23m annual passenger mark by 2016.
The latest passenger boost also follows last month’s announcement of a £1bn 10-year transformation programme which will more than double the size of Terminal Two.

The amount of air freight handled through Manchester is also booming - having increased for the fourth consecutive month, up 9.24pc from 7,996 tonnes in May 2014 to 8,735 tonnes this year.

Ken O’Toole, Manchester Airport’s Managing Director, said: “We continue to invest in making sure Manchester Airport can fulfil its potential as a true UK gateway for the north of England, through investment in new facilities; marketing initiatives to remind people in our catchment of the services we offer; or working with airline partners to deliver more new routes.

“We’re well prepared for the busy summer season ahead and expect it to be our best and busiest ever.

“With over 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.”

And the future is looking bright - with a host of new routes to be launched in coming months.

They include Austrian Airlines’ flights to Vienna starting on September 10. And from September 8, passengers can fly direct to Madrid with Iberia Express.

This month, Vueline begins a new service to Barcelona.

Jet2 and Jet2holidays have added Kefalonia, Malta, Antalya and Tunisia to their summer schedule, while Ryanair has added bologna, Lisbon, Zadar and Eindhoven to theirs.

And easyJet are selling flights to Pisa, Porto and Marseille.

Last month, Delta started a new route to JFK, New York and Flybe started flights to Bournemouth.

In March, flights to Atlanta were started by Virgin Atlantic and Thomas Cook is now flying a twice-weekly route to Miami[/QUOTE]

Manchester Airport gearing up for record-breaking summer holidays with 3.4m passengers jetting out...

This summer's top five most popular destinations revealed as industry insider says 'it pays to book late'

The sun is set to shine on Manchester Airport this summer - as it gears up for its busiest school holiday period EVER.

A surge in foreign family holidays is being put down to improving job prospects and good exchange rates.

In the countdown to the end of term, more than 3.4m passengers are expected to pass through the country’s third busiest hub over the next couple of months.

That is a record-breaking figure and up from 3.35m during last year’s summer period. The previous best was pre-recession in 2006.

And we can also reveal the top five most popular destinations this summer - Palma, Dublin, Dalaman, Dubai and Amsterdam.

A Manchester Airport spokesman said: “We’re expecting a record breaking summer with more than 3.4 million passengers anticipated to travel through Manchester Airport during the school holiday period.

“As highlighted by the variety of our most popular destinations this summer, we continue to be the UK’s global gateway from the north, with more than 22 million people within a two hour drive of the airport.”

Neil Robinson, business and tourism lecturer at Salford Business School, said the strong sterling and increased job security in Greater Manchester will help boost foreign family holidays this year.

He said: “I would advise people to hold off booking their summer holidays if possible until late July or mid August when there will be lots of good accommodation deals available in places like Turkey and the Spanish costas. If you take your time you will be able to get some good bargains.”
