Guide to Manchester Airport

History of Manchester Airport

Manchester Airport celebrated its 80th anniversaryczbirthday 2018. The control tower and large hangar, which were built at what was then Barton Airport in 1930, still stand on the site of today's city airport. As Barton was deemed unsuitable for larger aircraft, a new airfield was built at Ringway, about nine miles south of the town, and opened in 1938.

During the Second World War, the Ringway was used as an aircraft manufacturing and training center and the facilities were improved with three new runways and ten new hangars.

In 1952, Ringway Airport began operating 24 hours a day, serving 163,000 passengers a year, and in 1953, the first regular service from Manchester to New York, operated by Sabena, began. In 1962, a new, state-of-the-art £2.7m terminal opened – the first in Europe to use the 'dock' system, allowing passengers to remain under cover until boarding their aircraft. In 1974, the new intercontinental terminal had even more innovations, such as air conditioning, trolleybuses and aerial bridges connecting passengers directly to the aircraft.

By 1978, Manchester had 15 scheduled airlines with flights to 37 destinations in the UK, Europe and North America, and 5,000 workers were employed at the airport by more than 100 companies. Annual passenger numbers reached 15 million in 1995. In 2001, a second runway was added, and in 2017 the airport recorded its busiest day ever, with more than 107,000 passengers passing through the three terminals.


Manchester has three terminals: Terminal 1, Terminal 2 and Terminal 3. Terminal 1 and Terminal 3 are a two-minute walk from each other, while Terminal 2 to Terminal 1 or Terminal 3 takes 5 to 15 minutes on the internal walkways.
