Manchester Airport has revealed details of a £440 million investment that will ‘transform the passenger experience’.

In addition to allowing for more shops, bars and restaurants, the investment will mean upgrades to the airfield as well as check-in and baggage reclaim at Terminal 2.

The investment is the final phase of the airport’s £1.3bn transformation programme which has seen Terminal 2 more than double in size.

Owner Manchester Airport Group said 80% of all passengers will use the expanded terminal when the work is finished in 2025 and Terminal 1 will close, 63 years after it was opened by the Duke of Edinburgh, in 1962.

Manchester Airport MD Chris Woodroofe said Terminal 2’s upgrade would provide passengers will an ‘unrivalled choice of destinations’ and ‘world class facilities’.
