"Billionaires In Battle For Man Airport Grp"

Sun Apr 29, 2012 4:26 pm

Souce - Sunday Times Business.

"It appears that the richest man in Asia, Li Ka-shing, is battling with the ruling family of Abu Dhabi for a 50% stake
of Manchester Airport groups.
Manchester Airport Groups own 3 other airports,East Midlands,Bournemouth & Humberside.
The sale of the stake is conditional on Manchester making a succesful bid for Stansted, which the BAA isexpected to put up for sale this year."

Interesting times ahead for Stansted if this happens.
you don't get a second chance to make a first impression!

Yea...they'll probably stop you pulling up to the terminal like at manchester and make you pay for extortionate parking fees just to pick someone up.
Not to mention everything else that's very expensive.

You can still very easily drop someone off without parking up and paying for the pleasure.
