Pier One Airfield Views Revealed

26th Apr 2018

A photo taken from inside the first of three new piers to be built at Manchester Airport has revealed the fantastic views which will be enjoyed by customers from April next year (2019).

The huge glass windows will provide views of the airfield and the construction site of the main terminal extension which will open the following year (2020).

Fantastic progress has been made on the first pier with cladding, roofing and glazing being installed from the south end of the facility, back towards the terminal building.

The new pier will be 217m long and will have a combination of dedicated narrow-bodied stands, for smaller aircraft, and some ‘Multi Choice Arrangement’ stands which can either take three narrow-bodied aircraft or two wide-bodied (larger) aircraft. These stands provide maximum flexibility and ensure the airport makes best use of the aircraft parking available.
