Over the years, we had speculated it would involve a 5th freedom stopover somewhere in Europe. Guess the traffic studies point to sustaining a nonstop flight!

The Manchester long haul destination list grows once more!

Thomas cook have announced 3 weekly New York JFK, and 2 weekly Miami (the only UK-Miami link outside London).

Flights start 3rd and 5th May 2015.

Thomas Cook are also considering Boston and San Fransisco (Oakland). If these flights go ahead, it will bring the number of USA destinations to 11, which will be one of the highest numbers Manchester has ever had.

MAN-CLT Now Boarding...


American Airlines begins Manchester-Charlotte service
23rd May 2014

MANCHESTER Airport chiefs hailed the launch of the latest long-haul route today and declared there is "plenty more to go for".

The new route, a daily service to Charlotte Douglas International Airport in North Carolina, US, will be the fourth operated by the American Airlines from Manchester, although it will be operated by its recent merger partner US Airways.

Ken O'Toole, commercial director at Manchester Airports Group, said his team were looking next at increasing the frequency of flights to New York as well as bringing a direct Beijing route in the coming months.

He told TheBusinessDesk: "In our underlying catchment area we estimate believe around two million passengers go to the US a year. We are only serving around half that number at the moment so there's a lot of untapped demand.

"Our Fly Manchester campaign is all about demonstrating to passengers there is a long-haul alternative to Heathrow here."

He said the launch of the route to Charlotte was "gratifying" and the fruit of 18 months' work by his team in setting out a compelling business case for them to expand or launch Manchester flights.

The former Ryanair executive said Manchester has a "lot of traction" with the airlines on the back of increasing passenger numbers.

"We are going to hit 21 million soon and that'll be getting close to the 2007 peak of 22 million, and I am pretty confident we're going to get there in the next 12 to 18 months."

Clive Cook American Airlines’ MD of Airports UK & Ireland said that for the airline Manchester has an equal standing to European capital cities such as Rome and Madrid.

"There's a lot of confidence about Manchester - its up there with big capital cities. We are pretty confident we can be successful with the Charlotte route - it is a major hub for the airline.

"The route will begin as a seasonal, but if there's demand, we'll look at the potential for a year round service."

He added: "We are thrilled to add this flight to Charlotte, complementing our existing services to Chicago, New York and Philadelphia.

"Charlotte is one of the major airport hubs in the US with 39 million annual passengers where we have close to 630 daily departures to almost 150 destinations, travellers from Manchester will have excellent opportunities to connect onwards across the US or enjoy this historical city and its surroundings."

Strong demand for Airport City's China road show


The China road show, which comes to Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen between 9 to 13 June, will be the first of a series of international road shows for Airport City Manchester, the £800m expansion scheme of Manchester Airport.

Over 50 companies from a range of sectors including aviation, finance, legal and technology have registered interest to attend Airport City Manchester’s first international road show.

The China road show, which comes to Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen between 9 to 13 June, will be the first of a series of international road shows for Airport City Manchester, the £800m expansion scheme of Manchester Airport.

It has so far created demand from potential occupiers wishing to learn more about opportunities available for expanding their business into the UK and Manchester.

As part of the road show, Airport City Manchester, Beijing Construction Engineering Group, the Chinese developers who will bring the Airport City scheme to reality, along with Marketing Manchester, ICBC and the British Embassy will all make presentations.

A key element of the road show will be the announcement of more information about Airport City Manchester’s CONNECT service.

CONNECT is a one stop concierge service that will help occupiers settle into the UK. It will offer help with visas, tax assistance, company registration, plus local issues such as residential advice and tips on the best schools and universities.

Knut Wiszniewski from Wiedemann Consultants, which specialises in strategies, feasibility studies and project management for Airport City and Aerotropolis developments, and who plans to attend in Beijing, said: “We are really looking forward to attending Airport City Manchester’s road show.

“We’ve read a great deal about it and can see the potential a development of this size could offer international businesses.

“What struck a chord with us is Airport City Manchester’s CONNECT service. A major hurdle for Chinese businesses wanting to re-locate has been all the barriers, which one must get through to make the move. So a scheme like this is the perfect antidote and one that will resonate with many Chinese companies I believe. I’d recommend other corporations and airports to seriously consider attending to learn about all the benefits first hand.

Places are still available across the three cities, and are open to anyone that is interested.

The events are taking place at the following locations and interested parties can sign up online at www.airportcity.com.cn

Tuesday 10 June Beijing, Beijing China World Hotel, 09:00 11:00 - email [email protected]

Wednesday 11 June Shanghai, Fairmont Peace Hotel, 10:00 12:00 - email [email protected]

Friday 13 June Shenzhen, Shenzhen Grand Hyatt, 10:00 12:00 - email [email protected]

More increased frequencies at MAN...

Seems Manchester is getting a few increases this winter, all which help address the seasonality imbalance.

Next up with the confirmed increases is TAP.

Lisbon-Manchester is 11 weekly this winter compared to daily last year.

TP324 LIS 0705 MAN 1000 MTWTFSS A319/A320
TP329 MAN 1045 LIS 1335 MTWTFSS A319/A320

TP322 LIS 1405 MAN 1700 --WTF-S A319
TP323 MAN 1745 LIS 2035 --WTF-S A319

Flights are bookable on all platforms including TAP website.

and...

Good news today that Aegean Airlines will convert their summer seasonal Athens-Manchester to a year round service. Flights are confirmed and bookable on all platforms including the Aegean Airlines website.

Up until 25th October, flights will be 3 weekly. From 28th October until 1st April, flights are bookable 2 weekly on Tuesday and Saturday, with different timings to the summer flights:

A3638 ATH 0835 MAN 1035
A3639 MAN 1120 ATH 1715

A320 operates.

I think this will be the first time, and only airport outside London to have a year round link to Athens.

Courtesy World rep.

As we can see MAN really is establishing it self as a serious option to LHR, still awaitng news of the PEK route.

superb news for MAN...

20 June 2014

Trams to Manchester Airport to arrive more than A YEAR early

The new Metrolink line to Wythenshawe and Manchester Airport will launch before the year is out – more than 12 MONTHS ahead of schedule.

Trams will start to run along part of the route from Monday 23 June as the very first stages of a thorough testing and commissioning process get under way.

The 14.5km route, delivered by the MPT consortium, is one of the biggest live civil engineering projects in the country.

Several major purpose-built structures have been built as part of the programme, including a viaduct over the Mersey Valley, two new bridges over the M60 and M56, and the Ringway Road dual carriageway and underpass at Manchester Airport.

All of the existing highway and street lighting and road signs along the entire route have been renewed and significant urban realm improvements have been made around each of the line’s 15 new stops.

A 300-space Park and Ride facility at Sale Water Park, free for Metrolink passengers to use, will serve the line.

Services will initially run between Manchester Airport and Cornbrook, every 12 minutes.

They will start to run through the city centre once the Second City Crossing is complete in 2017.

Councillor Andrew Fender, Chair of the Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) Committee, said: “The sheer scale of the challenges this project presented make its early completion a truly phenomenal achievement.

“To be so far ahead is down to several marginal gains adding up to a significant result: the early delivery of a number of lines allowed us to move resources onto the line earlier; lessons learnt during the early phases of the expansion drove efficiencies across work areas; creating a desktop simulator cut the timescales for driver training in half.

“These are just a few examples of how, by working closely with local authorities, utility firms, our principal contractor MPT, stakeholders and the operator MRDL, we’ve become an ultra-efficient machine – and this is our collective reward.

“My thanks go to everyone involved: the residents, the businesses, the local councillors and MPs, the contractors, the TfGM and city council officers, and Manchester Airport.”

Sir Richard Leese, leader of Manchester City Council, said: “The early opening of this vital new line to Wythenshawe and Manchester Airport is a tremendous boost for Manchester.

“For Wythenshawe, it will be a pivotal moment in the town’s regeneration which will significantly enhance its pull as a place in which to live and do business.

“For the airport, which is crucial to the fortunes of the whole of Greater Manchester, it will provide another attractive transport option for customers and improve links with the emerging Airport City development.

“In short, this line will be a major new artery helping to pump investment into the heart of our region.”

Andrew Cowan, Chief Operating Officer for Manchester Airports Group (MAG), said: “We’re delighted that the project will be completed ahead of schedule as the additional transport options open up Airport City to even more people across Greater Manchester, giving us greater connections to areas such as Salford and Oldham.

“We will be aiming to create thousands of jobs with the project and the addition of more transport links, alongside a fourth rail platform which is also under construction, continues to underscore that Manchester Airport is one of the best served in the UK by ground transport.

“As well as assisting staff to access the site, we expect that it will also provide another option for the 21m passengers who already use the airport.”

The Airport line will bring the size of the Metrolink network to 92.5km (57.5 miles), serving 92 stops.

The Airport line in numbers:
14.5 = total length of the line (in kilometres)
59.5 = total length of rail installed (in kilometres)
15 = number of stops: Barlow Moor Road, Sale Water Park, Northern Moor, Wythenshawe Park, Moor Road, Baguley, Roundthorn, Martinscroft, Benchill, Crossacres, Wythenshawe Town Centre, Robinswood Road, Peel Hall, Shadowmoss and Manchester Airport
300 = number of Park and Ride spaces at Sale Water Park
34 = number of ticket vending machines
30 = number of customer help points
9 = number of trams required for service
122 = number of CCTV cameras across the route
677 = number of overhead power line poles
28 = number of new or modernised tram/highway junctions installed (including major remodelling work at Wythenshawe town centre)

The Airport Enterprise Zone Gathering Momentum....


Come fly with me

04 July 2014

By Richard Williams

Lynda Shillaw has had a busy first month in charge of property at Manchester Airports Group. While getting to know the ins and outs of the development, last month the group took the £800m Airport City masterplan to China to drum up international interest. She tells Property Week about her strategy for success for the scheme.


The former real estate head of Scottish Widows Investment Partnership has taken charge of a £600m property division across the group’s four airports, and by her own admission delivering the UK’s first Airport City at Manchester airport is one of the biggest challenges of her career.

Shillaw was appointed divisional chief executive for property on 1 June and reports directly to MAG group chief executive Charlie Cornish. At the top of her list of priorities is to get the 5m sq ft Airport City off the ground. So far only DHL has signed up to the scheme, taking a 37,308 sq ft logistics building.

“I think it is up there as the biggest challenge of my career, but I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t,” she says. “I have walked into the role really. The team had already worked up a masterplan and the joint venture was set up. My job is the execution and delivery of that. I am not at base camp though, we have started the ascent.

“We are working on a number of deals and there are a lot of opportunities for us. We have a significant amount of interest in specific parts of the site. We are working through the process with occupiers both international and UK-based.”

The scheme is split into two sections: Airport City North, which will see an extra 1m sq ft of offices built to add to the existing 4M, Voyager and Manchester Business Park buildings, 650,000 sq ft of advanced manufacturing space and an extra 2,400 hotel beds as well as a multi-storey car park; and a 1.4m sq ft World Logistics Hub on the south side of the site.

On the immediate plans at Airport City, Shillaw says: “This job is very aviation sector-orientated. I think there is huge scope to develop a unique product including looking at funds. Could I move some of it to the fund model? That’s what I’m really looking forward to.

“My main priority is making sure we are focused on delivering the business plan. I want to create a market-leading property company in the aviation sector. We have assets with good land holdings which are perfectly placed to do this, whether that is logistics, cargo, hotel or residential.

“But I also want to do it in a way that promotes growth in the airport; the two go hand-in-hand. The airport has opened up major routes. In December it will be the only UK airport outside London to have a non-stop service to China, will be flying to Hong Kong four times a week and is due to open up more routes to destinations.

“The airport’s growth, both in terms of passenger numbers and opening routes, is the key opportunity to grow the property side. There is a huge link between the opening of these routes and making Manchester a global place to do business.”

Shillaw says the geography of the government-designated Enterprise Zone site make it an ideal global business hub for the UK.

“Airport cities are unique. There are very few places that can deliver them because they are landlocked or because of the nature of the location. Manchester is an international airport that is growing. The city has had great success and has a fledgling financial services sector, also bio-tech, science and medical and has a great concentration of skills. Transport links — road, rail and air — are all in place, or will be when HS2 arrives.

“This is an absolutely huge opportunity to deliver something unique and special and be part of the bigger picture for Manchester.”

With the Manchester office market heating up on both the investment and occupation front, with demand far outstripping supply, Airport City has been regarded as being in competition with city centre schemes, but it is not a view Shillaw shares.

“We are competing with Frankfurt, Amsterdam and Singapore; we are not competing with Manchester city centre. You have Media City and a few years ago you had the Spinningfields district, which has been a success in its own right and has complemented the city centre, not taken away from it.

“And in London, you have the Battersea and Greenwich developments, as well as many others that have all enhanced London as a destination. If you are going to be a global city you need that variety and different identities within it.”

Argent has been appointed as development manager on Airport City and Shillaw points to another Argent scheme in London that has had huge success in regenerating an area and making it a destination for business.

“King’s Cross is the vision for Airport City. To create a place where people want to live and work, that is easily accessible. That is the art of the possibility here.”

Easy integration

Airport City is being developed with a Chinese-backed consortium and last month MAG headed east for a roadshow at four cities in China. The Airport City joint venture, which was signed in 2012, includes Beijing Construction Engineering Group which has a 20% stake, Carillion with 20% and the Greater Manchester Pension Fund (GMPF) with 10%. MAG has the remaining 50% share.

Visiting Tianjin, Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen, the senior MAG delegation met with potential occupiers from the financial, legal, aviation and telecommunications industries and a number of parties will visit the airport in September.

“There is a lot of interest following the trip,” says Shillaw. “It was an innovative approach to take the scheme and the masterplan to potential occupiers. That has been a success and there have been a number of follow-up enquiries.

“What we will look to do is start small and grow. A Chinese company may only need a 12,000 sq ft logistic requirement, for instance. We would provide the product today and grow with them. Same thing with office space — build out as they grow.”

The delegation also showcased its concierge service, Connect, which aims to integrate international occupiers into the UK, and Shillaw hopes this will give Airport City a competitive advantage over its rivals.

She says: “It’s critical to get people who relocate here integrated very quickly. It will be important to the whole product we can offer. We are competing with other international cities for tenants and one of the advantages we can deliver to a client is that we can integrate the workforce quickly.”

As well as Manchester airport, Shillaw’s property portfolio includes 250 buildings and 620 acres of development land at MAG’s other airports at Stansted, East Midlands and Bournemouth.

She explains: “In other parts of the group, we have Stansted, where there is very limited work being done on the property side. There is a big masterplanning exercise that will need to be carried out there.”

But it is Manchester that is at the forefront of Shillaw’s plans and will be for the next 10 to 15 years as she looks to execute the masterplan to successfully deliver the UK’s first Airport City.

Thomas Cook now look to be introducing Los Angeles from Manchester, as LAX has appeared as a MAN destination, with no flights bookable yet. Exactly the same thing happened with JFK/MIA.

MANCHESTER Airport remains on course for its best-ever year for passenger numbers after a 6% hike in July.

More than 2.4 million people departed from the airport on holiday or on business during the month.

The 6% increase on the same month in 2013 takes the rolling annual total up to 21.36m, putting Manchester, the third busiest airport in the country after Heathrow and Gatwick, on target to achieve its busiest-ever summer since 2007 and surpass its peak of 22 million within the next year.

Ken O’Toole, chief commercial officer at MAG, the parent company of Manchester, Stansted, East Midlands and Bournemouth airports, said: "We are on a path of sustained growth in passenger numbers and are encouraged by what’s in the pipeline. New operators and new routes contribute to this, as does increased consumer confidence in the UK’s economic recovery.

"Customer experience remains an area of focus at Manchester and we continue to look at ways of improving the operation at Manchester, for the benefit of all of our users. We know there are still opportunities out there and we expect that as public transport access to the airport improves further with the additional rail and Metrolink options, that more business and leisure travellers will see Manchester as the most natural fit for their travel needs.

"We continue to raise awareness of what’s on offer here across the North of England with successful marketing campaigns such as ‘Fly Manchester’."

During July, easyJet announced it would introduce a new flight to Madeira from Manchester Airport. The new route to Funchal on Madeira will launch in February 2015. Funchal is easyJet’s 35th destination from Manchester Airport where the airline now employs over 320 staff and bases eight permanent aircraft at the site.

Corsican Places also celebrated the start of its new Manchester holiday service to Figari in Southern Corsica on July 13. The new route, with airline Flybe, adds to the tour operator’s charter programme which also includes a Manchester flight service into Calvi in the north of the island with the same airline.

It wasn't all good news though as Saudia Arabian airline Flynas axed its Jeddah to Manchester service after just three months.

The new DHL base is pretty much complete now, with the road infrastructure being built quickly around it too.

The last three photos from the July update from Airviews shows it all off pretty well. http://www.airviews.info/dhl_airport_city.html

Virgin Atlantic will base an A330-300 at Manchester and run a new flight to Atlanta.

This is the first time Virgin Atlantic has served a non-purely leisure based route from Manchester (excluding the little red flights to London).

At the same time, Virgins new Joint Venture partner, Delta, will launch daily flights from Manchester to New York JFK from June 2nd, aboard a B767-300.

Rumour wise, Thomas Cook are due to launch Los Angeles and Providence flights, given they appear on the Thomas Cook website.

Also, Hainan Airlines are due to start a 4 weekly A330-200 to Beijing from June 12th, cargo bookings are now being taken for the route.
