New £30m Cargo Facility For Manchester Airport

One of the world’s largest air services providers has committed to a brand new cargo facility at Manchester Airport.

dnata's ‘build to suit’ premises, to be known as ‘dnata City North’ are being developed at the airport's World Freight Terminal by Manchester Airport Group (MAG) Property

Representing an investment of more than £30m, the new ‘Grade A’ 145,000 sq ft high bay facility, will include 20,000 sq ft of office space over two floors.

Particularly well situated for ease of airfield access, the new facility will allow dnata to consolidate and grow its Manchester operations with capacity to handle over 150,000 tonnes per annum.

The new facility will become operational in late Summer 2020 and stand to benefit from the Airport’s ongoing £1 billion transformation programme which in addition to passenger and terminal facilities, includes the re-modelling of taxiways and additional aircraft stands to accommodate more of the world’s largest aircraft.
