Manchester flavour of the future

The first food and drink outlets to feature in the new “super terminal” being built at Manchester Airport as part of its £1bn transformation have given passengers a taste of the flavour of the future.

The list includes brands born and bred in the region, including a stalwart of Manchester’s dining scene, the San Carlo Group, which will open its first airport venue with the launch of San Carlo Cicchetti in the extended Terminal Two.

The new departure terminal, which will more than double in size through the largest investment in the airport’s 81-year history, will also feature The Apiary and Daisy Nook plus popular chains moving in for the first time.

CEO Andrew Cowan said: “We have said from the start that our £1bn transformation programme is about creating a step change in the experience we deliver to our customers.

“Part of that is providing a mix of dining and retail outlets for people to choose, and we have worked hard to identify partners that represent the strength and depth of the region’s food and drink scene.”

In all, the airport has revealed 15 venues for the terminal. Wagamama, M&S Simply Food, M&S Food to Go, Indian and Mexican street-food outlet Wrapchic and fresh juice and food bar Vit will also have a presence.

For far too long the passenger experience at Manchester has been a nightmare, as the airport authority ripped passengers off. Now, we endure the upgrade disruption, with the authority continuing to rip people off with fast-track options through security and immigration. Spending money on better security equipment and a bigger area would be just one way to improve the awful experience at Manchester.
