About us


Every year, Manchester Airport connects over 28 million passengers with more than 200 destinations across the globe. As the third largest airport in the UK, Manchester is also in the top 20 airports in Europe. Part of the largest UK owned airport operator group, MAG, Manchester Airport supports over 19,000 jobs onsite and generates around £7.75bn each year for the region.


In 2021, Manchester Airport marked a major milestone in its 83-year history when we opened the iconic Terminal Two extension, the centrepiece of our £1bn transformation programme. We still have a few years of further construction work to go, but once completed Manchester Airport will be a facility which competes on a world stage!


We’re all here on a journey ourselves, striving every day to help make air travel smoother, more seamless, connecting more people and goods with the world. As a team, we recognise the importance of what we do, supporting one another along the way. Together, we are the Journey Makers.
