Manchester Airport Group calls for roadmap to restriction-free travel

The UK’s largest airport group, Manchester Airports Group (MAG), has responded to the recent update from the Prime Minister regarding the restart of international travel. While welcoming moves towards a risk-based approach to reopening the sector, the group has expressed significant disappointment at an apparent lack of any provision for a return to restriction free travel when conditions allow.

MAG owns and operates Manchester, London Stansted and East Midlands Airports, handling over 60m passengers per year prior to the pandemic.

Emirates resumes flights from Manchester

Emirates has resumed flights for passengers between Manchester and Dubai, reconnecting people and businesses in the North of England to 30 destinations currently on Emirates’ growing network. The twice weekly Boeing 777-300ER flights to MAN will operate every Wednesday and Sunday. The resumption of flights from Manchester makes the airport the second Emirates UK gateway to reopen, alongside London Heathrow.

This expansion of services allows UK customers to fly to destinations in the Asia Pacific, including Australia, with a convenient connection in Dubai.

Manchester Airport Group celebrate 80 supersonic years

Last year was a significant one for the airport. It celebrated its 80th birthday in June in which they looked back on what had been achieved and also forwards to the future.

As part of the celebrations The Concorde Conference Centre at Manchester Airport’s Runway Visitor Park recently played host to over 180 corporate guests as they celebrated the Airport’s milestone birthday. To mark the occasion, there was an aviation fun filled evening with guests checking in on arrival issued with boarding passes before dining under the wings of the iconic Concorde.
