Could someone please tell me how many flights there are a day (on average) from Manchester Airport, UK? (MAN).

Feel free to divide it up into movements/take-offs/landings.

Many thanks.

and note the difference between the summer months and the winter months. Max for a day I've recorded is 850 movements on 28th May 2003.

850? Wow that is a lot. Probably taken up mostly by charter flights!

Do not mean to sound ignorant, but when you mean 'movement', does that mean a take-off AND a landing?

That was cheating!! I'll let you explain why I took more photos in one day on that date at MAN than in any day before or since

Looking at those figures brought back memories of going to MAN by bike from Heaton Moor in the late 1950s and sheltering from the rain in the old Manchester Corporation Parcels van hulk which someone had dumped on the path behind the Airport Hotel on Ringway Rd. Quite a few people who later became senior managers at the airport used to gather there (one reason the airport has always been enthusiast friendly) and amongst our number, from time to time was one Michael Bishop.

We would be satisfied with a handful of Viscounts, DC3s, the odd Viking and Hermes, a delayed BOAC Britannia (the BOAC transatlantic departures then were all around 10 pm) repeated flights by the Airviews Austers and the highlight would be the late afternoon arrival of the SABENA DC7C.

Rarely did I log more than 35 - 40 aircraft in a ten hour day!

A takeoff is one movement and a landing is one movement.

Okay, so I used Champions League FInal day to illustrate how busy it can be; that day, though, may be slightly useful guide to a theoretical maximum number of movements that could be handled by the mid 2010s. Perhaps a full parallel taxiway to 23L/05R will be in use by then.

I think the norm is for around 600-650 flights per day for summer and around 475-520 for winter. Perhaps Scottie Dog can elucidate?

Did they ever route the Britannia through Burtonwood in the winter, like they did with the Stratocruisers?

No, the Brit was much more docile and by 1958 the runway was 7,000 feet which was more than adequate.
