The Manchester Airport Transformation Programme (MAN-TP) is a series of 60 enhancements that will provide the millions of passengers that use the airport every year with facilities that combine a contemporary look and feel with state of the art services.
Brad Miller, Manchester Airport Transformation Programme Director said:
“Everyone at Manchester Airport is delighted that a significant piece of our £1bn transformation programme has been given planning consent. This means work can truly begin on the project, which over the next decade will see the airport continue to develop as a global gateway for the UK, directly to and from the North.
“The enhancements the project will make will enable us to further adapt, modernise and transform the customer service experience we are able to offer passengers and airlines. It will also allow Manchester Airport to continue in its role as job creator and economic provider for Greater Manchester and the wider region.”
The key elements of the Transformation Programme include
The expansion and reconfiguring of Terminal 2, to become the airport’s primary terminal building
The Improvement of Terminal 3 to cater for increased demand and an expanding flight schedule
The introduction of new and enlarged airside transfer facilities, including the direct linkage between Terminals 2 and 3
The Introduction of the latest technology in a new, enlarged security hall that will screen more passengers, quicker and the introduction of a host of new customer friendly enhancements, including self-service check-in facilities and around 50 food and beverage and retail outlets
The Creation of a ‘future-proofed’ operational airport environment that provides greater flexibility and resilience to cater to evolving airline and security needs and The introduction of new stands and piers, offering better departure gate facilities
