Manchester Airport to build new “Super Terminal”

Manchester Airport have recently announced that they plan to build a new “super terminal” by 2023, which hopes to feature boosted security and baggage facilities on site.

The £1bn project is expected to get its first use as early as 2019 with the first pier, where planes park and passengers disembark, becoming fully operational.

The construction of the terminal facilities will provide a fantastic opportunity to supply work for building companies within the local area. The number of people working on the site has reached over 1000; 72% of those are from within a 35 mile radius.
The plan comes just as the airport takes on their 80th apprentice employee, in what also happens to be the year in which Manchester Airport celebrates its 80th birthday!

The Project and the Apprentices

18 year old Tom Bedford from Salford is the 80th apprentice, and he currently works at Bedford Fabrications as a welder. Tom will be amongst 150 apprentices who will be appointed during the course of the project.
Manchester Airport’s Rob Stewart, (Programme Delivery Director), said the project would transform both the passenger experience and have a positive impact on those working there and to firms across Greater Manchester.

So, what else is included in this “Super Terminal”?

The 19,754m² extension of T2 will see the introduction of the latest technology in two new security halls, self-service check-in facilities and state of the art services.
There will also be up to 50 new retail and food spaces and T2 will double in size, giving passengers more room to relax.
Did you know: an estimated 2016 tonnes of steel has been used to create the first pier, as well as 46,956 nuts and bolts?!
