Manchester Airport is the only global gateway to Northern England. Over 100 airlines offer direct flights to over 210 destinations worldwide, connecting over 22 million passengers to more places than any other airport in the UK.

At Manchester Airport, their goal is to be one of Europe's leading airports when it comes to managing and caring for their local environment.

Over the years, their environmental innovation has resulted in strategies, processes and technologies that are now standard practice at most of the UK’s major airports.
