T1 was to be demolished under the original masterplan, but I don't think it's clear that that remains the case now.

I'd imagine Swiss will move over to T2 whenever Lufthansa do. Brussels moved over yesterday, and Eurowings had already moved over there prior to the pandemic, so will probably be going back over fairly soon too.

Ryanair director of commercial, Jason McGuinness, said the firm will "deliver recovery and growth" to Manchester despite the challenges posed by the pandemic. He added that the airline is "restoring connectivity for Manchester - and recovering UK traffic" as vaccination rollouts continue across Europe.

He said: "Following the successful vaccination programmes, UK air traffic led by Ryanair, is set to recover strongly in Summer 2021 and we are pleased to announce our recovery schedule for Manchester, which will deliver 5.1m passengers per year across 67 routes including new summer and winter routes to exciting destinations"

the new summer routes will see two weekly flights to Santorini in Greece, Knock in Ireland and Verona in Italy - plus three to Bucharest in Romania. Its winter 2021 schedule will see twice weekly flights to Kaunas, Paphos in Cyprus, Poznan in Poland, Suceava in Romania, Zagreb in Croatia - and one weekly flight to Salzburg in Austria.

With Arsenal & Inter Milan cancelling their trips to this Florida Cup event, Everton won't be playing much football!

Looks like HS2 is fast running out of cash according to The Sunday Times. If It ever gets up North (and even that is a mute point ) there is no connectivity improvement for Piccadilly and no link to Manchester Airport.

Leveling up going spectacularly well.....

A mute point? Have they been silenced or just swanning around? 😁

Ex Thomas Cook Hangar for sale.

Looks like the THG option for the hangar has died a death. Nice move by MAG. They had a buyer and a genuine offer from an MRO and turned it down. Now they have huge building which can't be used until someone starts operating it again. Genius work. 🙄

Air Livery hangar

Having not been to MAN for nearly 18 months can anybody confirm whether the Air Livery hangar still stands? There was an OAN issued on 25th September 2020 stating a circa 16 week programme to deconstruct the hangar - OAN 085/2020 refers.

What was the story with the TCX hangar?

Current management seem to be stumbling from one calamity to another.

Can someone get a grip ?

Rumour was that THG had a tie up with Amazon and were going to use the hangar as a 'drive through' load/unload area. They have apparently got 4 A330 in conversion works somewhere.
The Air Livery/BA hangar is going to be demolished and a new building erected for THG.

At the moment Jet2 have the only viable hangar at what is supposed to be Britain's 2nd (3rd) city!

Complete joke.

Bit baffled to the relevance of hangar availability and city status? For example, nothing at Edinburgh or Belfast, and Cardiff has massive hangars but no flights?

(and before anybody quibles, I mean hangars suitable for airline customers/MRO's)

I must admit, I was a bit perplexed at that. To the wider city it has little relevance in terms of status or prestige.

That said, having an hangar facility and the associated jobs is good for the airport. The problem is, for the size (and success) of the airport, MAN is in the rather unusual position that it doesn't actually have a based airline. By based I mean headquartered which often leads to a company hangar. Perhaps going forward, perhaps easy might consider a facility if it were to ever bring MAN's engineering in-house.

Easy have just announced plans for a 4 bay hangar in BER. With the recently extended LGW hangar and this new BER hangar, I think it unlikely easy will be interested in hangar 1.

Airport status, not City status. I mean this thread is about Manchester Airport right? Not the city.
MAN advertises itself as a world class facility for international travel. It has been courting airlines from various parts of the world for years.
Its a bit grim knowing that if your aircraft goes tech, the job, no matter how large will have to be done outside in all weather.
