VIP Visitors to MAN-TP

30th Aug 2019

Over the last two years we have welcomed a number of key influential stakeholders to the site, showcasing the investment on-site and the role of the airport as a gateway to the north.

This has included Prime Minister Boris Johnson, GM Mayor Andy Burnham, our constituency MP Mike Kane and the Greater Manchester All Party Parliamentary Group of MPs.

The new pier has also been the backdrop for many important events including a Northern Powerhouse Partnership breakfast event with panellists including Lord Jim O’Neill, Joanne Roney (Chief Executive, Manchester City Council), Councillor Susan Hinchcliffe (Leader of Bradford City Council and Chair of the West Yorkshire Combined Authority), and Anna Heaton (Transport specialist at Addleshaw Goddard, based in Leeds), talking about the role of Manchester Airport and calling for commitments from the Government to support its growth and commit to things that will do most to make best use of the capacity we have such as High Speed 2 and Northern Powerhouse Rail.
