MAN-TP is a tremendously exciting project which will bring about real benefits not only for users of the airport but also for the Greater Manchester area.”

Brad Miller, MAN-TP director said; “We look forward to AG joining the project, which will enable Manchester Airport to meet the growing expectations of airlines and passengers and ensure it continues to play its role in delivering the Northern Powerhouse proposition.

“MAN-TP will give the north a modern, user friendly airport that will allow passengers to easily connect with global markets. Having a credible partner like AG on board will help us to deliver this effectively.”
