Chinese ambassador visits Manchester to discuss trade links...

Quote:
Barbara Woodward hosted a series of roundtable events with north west business leaders to discuss bilateral trade and investment link...


The Queen's ambassador to China has told businesses about the benefits of trading in the Far East.

During a visit to Manchester this week Barbara Woodward hosted a series of roundtable events with business leaders to discuss how best to develop bilateral trade and investment links between the region and China.

Organised by the China-Britain Business Council in Manchester, the discussions centred on trade, art and culture, and education links.

A range of Greater Manchester businesses joined discussions on how to deepen co-operation with China, building on the partnership that the Prime Minister and Premier Li Keqiang reaffirmed last year.

Among the attendees were Halle Concerts Society, the National Football Museum, Manchester Metropolitan University and the Universities of Manchester and Bolton.

Clothing company Regatta, Language Brand Communications, PTG Advanced Developments, EDM Limited, Hughes Safety Showers and Arup also attended. The session was chaired by Clive Drinkwater, UKTI’s North West Regional Director.

During the visit Ms Woodward also met newly appointed Consul General of China Li Yongsheng.

Ms Woodward said, "I am delighted to meet a range of businesses here in Manchester, representing a wide range of sectors from clothing and retail to architecture and advanced manufacturing.

"In the last five years inward investment from China has increased by an average of 85 per cent and exports to China have doubled. Northern cities have a crucial role to play in strengthening the increasingly dynamic relationship between the UK and China, the recent Chinese investment in Manchester Airports group is a great example of the potential to build strong links between the two economies.”

"The continued economic reforms taking place in China to improve the regulatory framework for trade and protect intellectual property make this an ideal time to bring ideas to the fore and highlight the support available to take business co-operation to the next level.”

I often think that MAN is very similar to Dublin, in terms of airport size, destination mix, airline mix and market demographics.

One particular similarity is Etihad. They have grown at roughly the same rate as us, including past increases being quoted from Etihad as 'between MAN or DUB'. Even now, DUB sees 2 daily flights, 1 B777 flight and 1 A330 flight.

So, its interesting to see that as of Feb 1st, Dublin looses its B777 and downgraded to an A330.
There are posts on another forum that perhaps the middle east market ex-DUB is now saturated, with 2 A330's from Etihad and 2 B777's from Emirates per day.

On the flip side at MAN, from Feb 1st, Etihad increases to 2 B777's a day, Emirates switches 1 B777 to an A380 to make 2xA388 and 1xB777, Qatar is increasing to 2 daily, Saudi remaining at 4 weekly and soon Iraqi Airways will join the party.

There are rumours that Kuwait Airways keep sniffing at MAN, Emirates to add a 3rd A380, the way Qatar have added the 4 extra flight leaves scope for 3 daily, Etihad have publicly said they want to go 3 daily and Iraqi Airways have said 2 destinations is just the start.

So, the question has to be asked, when will MAN's ME saturation point come?

The MEB3 rely on connecting traffic, and with that market now very well served, along with carriers such as Cathay and Hainan getting brave and serving the connection sources direct, surely there will come a time when the market just says 'that's enough'.

The above rumours are just the ones we know about. Negotiations are often secretive, so, who knows what else is going on behind the scenes, I mean, look at the 2nd A380, that came out of nowhere in terms of start date.

Interesting times ahead.

Manchester aims higher after topping 22 million

MANCHESTER Airport is aiming to add new routes, both long and short haul, after hitting the 22 million passenger mark for the first time since 2007.A healthier economy, expansion from budget, charter and scheduled airlines combined with its successful 'Fly Manchester' campaign to woo travellers from outside its natural catchment area, were all cited as reasons for the airport's revival.Since January 2014, 22 million passengers have used the UK’s third busiest airport, visiting 210 international destinations including S...

Manchester Airport station reopens after work to build a fourth platform is completed...

Quote:
Manchester Airport station has reopened after work to install track and signalling as part of the new fourth platform was completed.



Network Rail completed the essential upgrade - which will allow extra services to call at the airport and provide passengers with better access from across the north of England – over the weekend and reopened the station this morning (9 February).

It is the latest stage of improvements to be completed as part of a £1bn+ investment in the railway in the north of England.

The fourth platform will provide greater capacity and flexibility at the station which will contribute to a better, more reliable railway with better connections to the airport. It is due to be brought into use in May 2015.

Ian Joslin, area director for Network Rail, said: “Project by project, the upgrades being made to provide a better railway across the north of England are being completed. The new fourth platform at Manchester Airport station is the latest example and will contribute to an improved rail service to the airport.

“When the wider investment of more than £1bn is delivered by 2019, passengers will benefit from a better railway which will provide faster journeys, more space and better reliability for millions of passengers every year.”
Quote:
Wayne Poole, director of passenger services for Manchester Airport, said: "With over 22m passengers a year flying to over 210 destinations, we continue to ensure the airport is as accessible as possible for all who use it.
"Not only will the additional platform be beneficial to passengers, but also to the 19,000 employees based on site, which will only grow further as our £800m Airport City project develops.

"We have worked closely with Network Rail throughout the entire process and it is pleasing to see the works finish on schedule."

Speaking on behalf or First TransPennine Express, Northern Rail and Arriva Trains Wales, a spokesman said: "We are delighted that the works to improve the Airport station have been completed on time and on schedule. Manchester Airport is a thriving and extremely busy international airport and it is right that the rail station that serves it offers the best possible customer experience for people either starting or finishing their journey.

"The enhancements will lead to increased train capacity and reliability, both of which are fundamental expectations of our customers.

"The fourth platform and the new Metrolink terminal mean that the airport now has excellent rail connections to Manchester city centre and the whole of the north of England. The improvements represent a significant step in an exciting future for rail in the coming years."

For further information on the wider investment visit www.networkrail.co.uk/north.

Boom time as Emirates reveals "huge" growth in Manchester...

Quote:
15:09, 10 February 2015
By Charlotte Dobson

In an interview with the M.E.N.'s Charlotte Dobson, UK Vice President of Emirates Laurie Berryman said the airline has enjoyed all 25 years of its association with Manchester Airport and the region's people

Laurie Berryman of Emirates

Emirates bosses have announced a record two months at Manchester Airport.

UK Vice President of Emirates Laurie Berryman said the airline had seen “huge growth” thanks to Manchester’s booming economy.

Mr Berryman also backed the devolution deal for Greater Manchester and said giving more power to the region ‘could only be a good thing.’

Mr Berryman, who visited Manchester on Tuesday, said: “Manchester is the third busiest airport in the UK and demand for flights to Dubai, and beyond, has increased significantly during our 25 years of operating out of the airport.

“This is due, in part, to the continued economic growth of Manchester and the wider north west region – now seen as a key international hub for business people.”

Emirates employs almost 400 in Manchester at the airport and at their customer contact centre in Manchester Business Park.

In 2014, almost 800,000 passengers flew with Emirates through Manchester Airport and 7.5million since 1990.

Emirates increased its capacity from the airport by 13 per cent after introducing a second daily Airbus A380 service at the beginning of February.

Mr Berryman said he thought Manchester Airport had a ‘very strong’ future.

He added: “There really has been huge growth in the region since we first came to Manchester in the nineties.

“We have carried more than 7m passengers and what is interesting is that demand has accelerated since then.

“What we have seen is a strong demand for long haul flights in Manchester. It really has changed beyond recognition.

“People’s mindset is now they don’t need to go anywhere else to fly long haul.”

Emirates’ three daily flights between Dubai and Manchester are said to be packed with businessmen and women as well as travellers heading to Australia and Asia.

Mr Berryman would not give specific figures for December and January, but said Emirates were expecting another record month in February.

The Vice President said they would expect to see a quiet period in May around the General Election.

He went on to back the devolution deal for Greater Manchester.

He added: “Devolution can only be a good thing. More power to the UK’s big regions in the UK must be good news.”
