Airline puts Manchester at centre of bid for top slot...

Quote:
BOSSES at budget airline Ryanair are trumpeting Manchester Airport as integral to its long term goal of becoming the UK’s number one passenger carrier.

Chief marketing and technical officers Kenny Jacobs and John Hurley jetted in as the airline launched its 30th birthday celebrations to underline the importance of the airport to its ambitions.

High on the agenda was also the continuing attempt to soften its reputation for adopting an uncompromising approach towards customers.

Mr Jacobs said business travel from the Manchester was expected to enjoy double digit growth this year, although he admitted expansion at Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport – chiefly a leisure only facility – would be slower.

“Manchester is big business for us, one of our fastest growing airports in Europe,” said Mr Jacobs. "We will be operating seven aircraft on 37 routes and running 200 flights a week in 2015.

“In particular, business travel is one of our faster growing markets with flights to Madrid, Dublin, Brussels and Eindhoven available to users.”

Other new routes starting in April include Shannon, Stuttgart and Hania in Greece.

Ryanair says it went from the number three ranked airline in the UK to number two in 2014 and is targeting top slot within the next 24 months.

“What has changed is that Ryanair has always been the cheapest, but the service was a little rough around the edges,” said Mr Jacobs.

Customers are now allowed to take two bags on board and there is allocated seating. About 25m euro (£20m) has also been spent, including on an overhaul of its website that has seen it reduce the transaction from 17 clicks down to just five to book a flight.

According to MrJacobs, Ryanair has 15% of the total traffic in and out of Manchester and 15% market share in Europe and is predicting the volume of customers this year will rise from 81m to 90m.

Mr Jacobs, however, was less gushing about the facility at Liverpool.
“Manchester and Liverpool work hand in hand although business is growing slow for us at Liverpool,” he said.

“There is much more demand for business travel from Manchester, whereas Liverpool’s routes are primarily for leisure.”

Ryanair’s first ever flight took off from Waterford in Ireland to London Gatwick in May, 1985, and it now has 1,600 daily flights across Europe and North Africa.

Manchester Airport soars over Gatwick and Heathrow to be named best in UK


Quote:
Manchester Airport has been named best in UK

Manchester Airport has soared over Heathrow and Gatwick to be named Best UK Airport.

The honour, bestowed at last night’s Globe Travel Awards, follows a phenomenal year of passenger and route growth - as well as huge infrastructure investment.

That boom has also resulted in a £20m windfall for Greater Manchester’s councils in return for their stake in the airport.

The award comes only two months after the country’s third biggest hub was crowned UK Airport of the Year at the Airport Operators Association annual awards in November 2014.

The accolades not only prove Manchester’s key place in national aviation but also bolster the battle for the Government to recognise the true worth of regional airports.

Ken O’Toole, chief commercial officer for Manchester Airports Group (MAG) said: “We are absolutely delighted to beat off fierce competition to win such an esteemed award and thank all the travel agents who voted for Manchester Airport


More than 2.5m people travelled through Manchester Airport last month

Ken O’Toole, chief commercial officer for Manchester Airports Group (MAG) said: “We are absolutely delighted to beat off fierce competition to win such an esteemed award and thank all the travel agents who voted for Manchester Airport.


“The accolade is testament to the continued hard work of all our airport staff, and we thank them for their ongoing commitment and diligence too.”

“It has been an incredibly successful year at Manchester Airport and we hope to soon see passenger numbers back over 22 million – a symbolic figure we’ve not seen since July 2006.

“Over the last 12 months we have significantly grown, not just from a passenger point of view but from a destination perspective.

“Last year we confirmed a direct route to Hong Kong, with Cathay Pacific, which makes Manchester the only airport outside of London with a direct non-stop service to China.

"As well as adding more routes we also continue to develop and invest in the airport, it is reasons like these, I believe, made us a worthy winner in the awards.”

As well as connecting the North West to China, Manchester Airport has also confirmed routes to Miami, Jeddah, Vienna and Pisa in the last year.

Services to North America have also been improved with increased capacity and frequency on routes to New York and Atlanta.

Manchester Airport is owned by MAG, which also owns London Stansted, East Midlands and Bournemouth Airports.

The group has total annual passenger numbers over 45m.
