Manchester Airport Soars To 28 Million Passengers
Manchester Airport is celebrating 28 million passengers passing through its three terminals for the first time in its history.

In its 80th year, the UK’s third largest airport saw more than 2.5 million passengers use the airport in October, an increase of 6% on the same month in 2017. That brought the rolling annual total to 28,022,344 passengers.

Numbers were bolstered by the October half term, with many families getting away for an Autumn break. And the positive news has continued since the end of the month.

Last week saw the launch of the only direct service in the UK to Mumbai outside of London, as Jet Airways started flights. The five a week service had its inaugural flight on the 5th November and left the Northern hub 96% full.

Ryanair, easyJet and Jet2.com have all added capacity to their winter schedules, which will continue to bolster overall passenger numbers. Plus, the North will soon have a direct route to the heart of Africa as Ethiopian Airlines start flights to Addis Ababa next month.
