Airport operator Manchester Airports Group (MAG) has released a fly-through video showcasing early design renderings of its development plans for Terminal 2 (T2) at Manchester Airport. The transformation of T2 into the airport’s main terminal is a key component of MAG’s £1bn (US$1.2bn) investment program.
Key elements of the Manchester Airport Transformation Programme include: the expansion and reconfiguring of Terminal 2 (T2) to become the airport’s primary terminal building; the improvement of Terminal 3 (T3); the introduction of new and enlarged airside transfer facilities, including direct linkage between T2 and T3; a US pre-clearance facility; introduction of the latest technology in a new, enlarged security hall; the installation of new self-service check-in facilities; the addition of approximately 50 food and beverage and retail outlets; the construction of new stands and piers; and improved road access for passengers traveling to and from the airport.
The transformation program will be delivered in multiple phases in order to minimize disruption to airport operations and passengers. It will also be delivered within the current airport footprint, making the best use of the existing terminal campus area.
