MANCHESTER AIRPORT has begun a multi-million pound development scheme to increase the capacity by 11m passengers a year as numbers continue to soar. Last week the airport confirmed that it had hit a rolling 22m annual passenger throughput just 14 months after it celebrated the 20m target. Terminal 2 Phase 2 is under way with the capacity more than doubling from its current 7m to 18m. The airport is also investing in the airfield with additional apron capacity to provide the equivalent of six wide-body or 12 narrow-body aircraft stands. 49 new check-in desks are being provided, 22 in Terminal 1, 15 in 'The Station' and 12 in Terminal 2. By 2015, the number of passengers passing through Manchester Airport is set to nearly double to around 40m per every year ” 9m more passengers than Gatwick currently handles.
