Manchester Airport sees 8.5% growth in 2017

Posted 11 January 2018 · Add Comment

Manchester Airport grew 8.5% year-on-year to serve 27.8m passengers in 2017, more than have ever flown from Manchester before.



The success of long haul routes to Beijing, Singapore, Hong Kong, San Francisco and Houston, combined with continued strong demand for summer holidays to Spain, Greece and the Canary Islands saw Manchester Airport play an ever more important role in connecting the North with global destinations.

In December 2017, traffic was up 1.5% year on year to 1.8m.

The growth comes despite the airport’s 7th biggest airline, Monarch, entering administration in October. 

Strong airline demand has enabled the airport to make good progress in allocating the slots previously used by Monarch for Summer 2018 and flights with Jet2.com, TUI and Thomas Cook Airlines are already on sale.
