Posted 30 December 2017 · Add Comment

As well as record passenger numbers, 2017 saw Manchester Airport bag all four of the key travel trade best UK airport awards, including Travel Weekly, Travel Bulletin, Travel Trade Gazette and Selling Travel.



The first gong was collected in January at Travel Weekly’s Globe Awards at Grosvenor House in London. It was the third year running the global gateway in the North bagged the accolade. The airport is now in the running for a fourth win next month at the 2018 ceremony.

Next up was the Travel Bulletin Star Awards held at the Langham Hotel, again in London. Manchester fought off competition from other UK airports including Birmingham, Liverpool and London Heathrow.

A hattrick was confirmed in September when at the Lyceum Theatre, the UK’s third largest airport won at the Travel Trade Gazette Awards, which was hosted by funny man Rob Brydon.
The quadruple was achieved earlier this month when Manchester was crowned best UK airport at the Selling Travel Agents Choice Awards.

Patrick Alexander, Manchester Airport’s Head of Marketing, said: “To win one best UK airport award is a great achievement, but to receive four is incredibly humbling.

“I would like to thank everyone who voted for us, be they our 27.7m annual passengers, travel agents or the industry.

“As the UK’s global gateway in the North, Manchester Airport is going through exciting times as we grow and spend £1bn transforming terminal two, so to have that recognised makes all of us feel incredibly proud.”

Manchester Airport is a global gateway and the largest airport outside London with more than 210 destinations served by 70 airlines. This year has seen the airport add direct services to San Francisco, Boston and Muscat. Next year will also see Seattle launch, in the UK these destinations can only be found at Manchester Airport outside of London.
