Manchester Airport transformation

Said to be the biggest single construction project ever to take place in Greater Manchester, Manchester Airport is to get a dramatic £1bn transformation over the next 10 years, more than doubling the size of Terminal Two with a link to an improved Terminal Three.

The ageing Terminal One will be demolished.

The latest technology will help passengers ‘flow’ through the airport, speeding up peak-time security from 15 to 10 minutes.

Passengers will have automatic bag-drops, and access to instant information on their phones.

There will be at least 50 food and drink outlets, more stands for aircraft and better links for connecting passengers.

The project is also aimed at attracting airlines and adding new long haul routes to Asia and the east and west coasts of America.

Plans are now in the final stages and work is due to start next April, with a goal of Terminal Two completion by 2023.

By 2050, it is hoped 55m passengers will use the hub every year, more than doubling the current 23m.     www.manchesterairport.co.uk
