MAG flies in August

No alternative text provided

Manchester Airport Group (MAG) operated hubs are continuing to boost the role they play in international trade with growth across all three airports in August.

Manchester Airport saw the strongest growth with a 22.7 per cent increase in August to 12,027 tonnes, with East Midlands Airport up 11.3 per cent to 29,229 tonnes and Stansted Airport by 1.4 per cent to 20,508 tonnes.

MAG corporate affairs director, Tim Hawkins says:

“As Heathrow and Gatwick fill up, Manchester and Stansted still have substantial capacity for growth. MAG is investing in new facilities and infrastructure so that its airports can play an even bigger role over the next 10 to 15 years before a new runway in the South East.”

He adds:

“The figures for August demonstrate that demand for flying to a wider range of global destinations has never been greater and MAG airports will play a critical role in this.

“It’s now critical that Government focuses on developing an aviation strategy for the next 10-15 years that helps airports like ours create a prosperous and outward facing Britain.”
