Manchester Airport has appointed Olivia Bussey as new Travel Trade Marketing Manager.



Olivia Bussey (above), has joined the UK’s third busiest airport after previously working as a travel consultant for TUI.

Olivia graduated with first-class honours in Business and Marketing from the University of Sunderland.

Working as part of the airport’s Marketing team, Olivia will be responsible for promoting the airport’s 220 plus destinations and 70 airlines to the travel trade industry.  Her role will see her look to strengthen ties with the trade, as well as organising and delivering events throughout Manchester Airport’s extensive catchment area.

She joins the airport at a busy time with celebrations about to start for its 80th birthday, and two long-haul route announcements after Jet Airways announced flights to Mumbai and Ethiopian Airlines to Addis Ababa.

Patrick Alexander, Head of Marketing at Manchester Airport, said: “We’re delighted that Olivia has joined the team.  She brings with her an extensive knowledge of how the travel industry works.  As the airport continues to grow with a £1bn transformation programme and more new routes coming onboard, it’s hugely important that travel agents come on the journey with us.”

Olivia Bussey, Travel Trade Marketing Manager for Manchester Airport, said: “With so much going on at the airport, it’s a really exciting time to join the team.  I can’t wait to get out on the road and spread the Fly Manchester message to travel agents across our catchment area.”
