I appreciate the DHL facility has turned Manchester into an "International Destination", re Air - Road, clearly its a huge positive to have a parcel / frieght service that allows inbound frieght to be processed onsite then migrate across the Northern m-way network.

....however both myself and indeed a few others were of the opinion that such a grand facility would in addition be an "International DEPARTURE point" in its own right using the very same advantages of an inbound facility ?

PS It's a wee bit presumtuous to assume we are all "spotters", speaking personally I have not jotted a number down in 25 years !

But I am interested in Manchester Airport as a catalyst for growth across the wider region. I am reminded that the current management, whilst in temporary situ to maximise shareholder value, also have an obligation to assist as a major lynchpin in supporting the wider economy.
