EK's global push since inception. If you click on the "top 10 destinations", you will see MAN come 9th.

Not so bad from beginning with a 2 weekly A310 via FRA back in 1989!

Senior level management at the ATL launch stated high focus will be on MAN over the next few years, and this has
apparently come from the CEO.

I wouldn't be surprised to see VS take over the JFK once it's established. Little red had swarms of NYC connections and for DL there are cost saving advantages of not running the route but running it through VS metal.

Interesting. I'm surprised there hasn't been any expansion before, given that BA don't operate long-haul out of MAN. Thought it would have been a perfect opportunity for VS to expand, but I guess they were waiting for the right aircraft. Also they now have the advantage of the tie-up with VS.

MAN-JFK on a VS B787 would be great!

I don't understand how this hasn't already happened. There is a such a large sub-continent population in around Manchester. Even before the ME3 dominance on the UK-India route AI or 9W should have been operating this route.

Just my 2c.

I agree. I would say surprising that AI operated to BHX before MAN (given that MAN is the bigger airport) but I think I'm right in thinking that there is actually a larger Indian population in and around Birmingham than there is in and around Manchester?

Could they do 4 x weekly DEL-MAN and 3 x weekly BOM-MAN?

Manchester has a much larger Pakistani population than Indian population, but the Indian population is not insignificant. You are right in saying that BHX has a much larger Indian population.

AI are a basket case airline and if they decide to try this, then they will have lost their minds. The ME3 will murder them through their pricing. PK survive because I believe Pakistanis are a very proud nation and very proud of their national carrier, so will generally use them as a first choice. Though even PIA are a shadow of their former selves at MAN when it was not uncommon to see 3 747s on the ground at the same time (usually caused by delays mind you   ).

MAN board approved master plan on Friday 15th May, according to other forums.

Any ideas as to when we will officially hear the announcement and if so, is it what we expected? T2 extension, then demolition of T1/T3 and the creation of one big Terminal? I also heard T2 in the future would handle all of the transfer traffic?

This sounds interesting, one big terminal it'd be like Schiphol. No more leaky T3 too!

Does anyone know whats going on at the old SN desk in T3 by the security lane? It's been all walled off

Would they build the one big terminal on the same site as the current T1/T3? How would that work? Or would they find another site?

I believe, although I may be wrong, that the building work would be in a close footprint to how the structure sits now. Parts would be demolished and rebuilt as it progressed.

If it has been approved that's quite an exciting development. I imagine T2 would be expanded first which would allow for a few smaller carriers to temporarily switch to T2 as T1 is rebuilt?

Thanks.

In an ideal world, it would be good if MAN operated as a two terminal airport, where one is for all the charter and low-cost carriers (O & D traffic) and the other for domestic, alliance, legacy and flag carriers where pax could transfer easily from BE flights (for example) to the wide network.

Why do some insist that terminals and airlines should be ever so neatly categorised and segmented? Whilst different airlines have different requirements, they can all be accommodated in the same terminal. To segment them does nothing for managing peaks and troughs through the different terminals. Also, with the boundaries between LCC's, charters and full service blurring, you are finding that passengers travelling on EZY or FR one week are BA's passengers the next and their requirements aren't necessarily changing when their choice of airline does.
What we may see however, is a pier that suits the LCC's needs whether that be just steps or airbridge with the provision to use steps at the rear aircraft doors.......something that MAN doesn't currently permit.

Seeing that CX carried 10,000 passengers in April where EK was the market leader in MAN-xxx-HKG, I honestly believe too much is read into how many passengers they are nabbing when EK is reporting increased passenger numbers themselves.

Remember how when it first started they were quoted as saying they wanted to operate 747s here but couldn't. The laughable thing is 6 weeks before they withdrew the service, they stated in Flight magazine that MAN was one of a handful of key routes they wanted to expand.

There are plenty of 77Ws down the road at BHX who could handle the load? Also some up at GLA/NCL etc. I don't think that would worry EK toooo much?

My point was nothing to do with wanting the airlines to be neatly categorised, it's more to do with grouping the airlines with their alliances and/or those where there is more transfer traffic to another airline. I admit, MAN is no LHR in terms of transfer pax, but it would still be easier. For example, at the moment BE is in T3 and CX is in T2. If I wanted to fly GLA-MAN-HKG, I would need to transfer from T3 to T2 at MAN.

I admit, there is much more of a blurred line between low-cost airlines and legacy carriers, but the type of pax using them is different sometimes. O & D pax against transfer pax.

That's not what the CAA passenger statistics say:

1. AMSTERDAM grew faster than DXB and became the largest destination in April 2015 overtaking DXB.
2. Growth to major European hubs AMS, BRU, DUB, LIS, MAD, MXP, FRA is larger than growth to DXB in April 2015.
3. DOHA and AUH are both growing faster than DXB from MAN in April 2015.
4. European hubs suffering negative growth are: ARN, CPH, CDG, MUC, FCO, ZRH (reason?)
5. Singapore (-4%) is suffering, but perhaps more from CX to HKG +10.000 pax. (new route)

- MANCHESTER - ABU DHABI 32.552 +18%
- MANCHESTER - AMSTERDAM 76.149 +20%
- MANCHESTER - BARCELONA 20.920 +35%
- MANCHESTER - BRUSSELS 15.818 +10%
- MANCHESTER - DOHA 26.274 +20%
- MANCHESTER - DUBAI 72.418 +4%
- MANCHESTER - DUBLIN 67.656 +6%
- MANCHESTER - FRANKFURT 35.077 +13%
- MANCHESTER - ISTANBUL 17.781 +3%
- MANCHESTER - LISBON 16.497 +41%
- MANCHESTER - MADRID 7.830 +40%
- MANCHESTER - MILAN (MALPENSA) 5.473 +36%
- MANCHESTER - SALZBURG 1005 +118%

but perhaps you may be right for some of the others:

- MANCHESTER - COPENHAGEN 24.818 -9%
- MANCHESTER - MUNICH 25.788 -11%
- MANCHESTER - PARIS (CHARLES DE GAULLE) 37.731 -17%
- MANCHESTER - ROME (FIUMICINO) 6.393 -6%
- MANCHESTER - SINGAPORE 9.414 -4%
- MANCHESTER - STOCKHOLM (ARLANDA) 10.352 -3%
- MANCHESTER - ZURICH 9.900 -40%

The EK 310 used to usually park at the end of Pier C from my memories. T3 didn't exist until after 1995. Certainly the A330s used to use the last Stand on T3 when I was working at MAN in the late 90s.

The Tailwind service is a block charter to Northern Cyprus and because on politics is required to route via a mainland Turkish entry point.

Its not in competition with THY really.

The big reveal!.

"Manchester Airport is to get a dramatic £1bn transformation, the M.E.N. can reveal - with a super-sized terminal and faster high-tech security lanes. Said to be the biggest single construction project ever to take place in Greater Manchester, the 10-year scheme will more than double the size of Terminal Two and link it to an improved Terminal Three. Ageing Terminal One will be demolished."

Timescale - T1 phased out by 2022 with T2 completion 2023.

So basically as we had expected/hoped. It's also going to have a new US pre-clearance facility. Destination modern airport full speed ahead

Looks like it.

It T1 is being (partially) demolished they've got to park the planes somewhere. In the grand scheme of things, building piers on an existing building will be less disruptive than building a new terminal.

So the remote stands between T2 and the cargo village will be lost and one upside will be losing the bottle neck at the end of the "intercontinental" pier on T1.

It looks like it'll be a continuous terminal from T2 to the end of the old international pier on T1 (presumably replaced)

This is great for MAN it looks like the easiest way to commence the works wil be to add a pier to North of T2 currently where staff parking is.

This will then facilitate the closure of T1.

Along side this expansion and upgrades of the current T2 building can commence.

Very exciting

MAN-AMS is going to record frequency of 14x daily in W15, while MAN-LHR will be 10x day.

In seats MAN-LHR is likely to stay ahead as the principle route for MAN.


MAN-AMS
dep. - arr. = airline - seats
1. 05:55 - 08:20 = KLM - 180
2. 06:30 - 09:05 = FlyBe - 78
3. 07:00 - 09:25 = easyJet - 180
4. 07:50 - 10:25 = FlyBe - 78
5. 09:20 - 11:45 = KLM - 142
6. 10:50 - 13:10 = KLM - 100
7. 10:55 - 13:30 = FlyBe - 78
8. 13:35 - 16:10 = FlyBe - 78
9. 13:45 - 16:05 = KLM - 80
10. 14:25 - 16:45 = easyJet - 156
11. 15:15 - 17:50 = FlyBe - 78
12. 16:50 - 19:25 = FlyBe - 78
13. 17:20 - 19:45 = KLM - 142
14. 18:25 - 20:45 = easyJet - 180
