Manchester Airport Group

Passenger numbers continued to recover across the Manchester Airports Group (MAG) in July, with its three airports handling 85% of pre-Covid passenger numbers, up from 82% in May and 84% in June. 

Manchester, Stansted and East Midlands airports saw 5.5m passengers pass through the terminals during the month, an increase on the 5.2m in June.

Stansted’s numbers reached 90% of 2019 levels, totalling 2.5m. Manchester’s strong recovery also continued, as 2.6m travellers transitted the Northern hub, representing 82% of pre-pandemic traffic.

East Midlands Airport saw more holidaymakers travel through its terminal in July as the summer holidays began.

Operational performance also continues to improve, with 93% of passengers at Manchester Airport clearing security in 30mins or less in July. More than two-thirds – 69% – passed through in 15mins or less.  This positive trend was maintained into the first week in August, with 99% of passengers clearing security in less than 30mins and 84% in less than 15mins.

At Stansted, all passengers passed through security within 15mins, in July.
