Manchester Airport has opened a new facility for aviation enthusiasts and Metrolink passengers close to the end of Runway 1. Accessed from Shadow Moss Road/Ringway Road, the new Car Park supplements the excellent facilities already available at the Runway Visitor Park. Enthusiasts now have a safe off road location to obtain different photograph angles of airborne aircraft.
Wayne Poole Manchester Airport Passenger Services Director commented: ”We know that our business provides much interest and fascination for many thousands of people and we are delighted to offer these new facilities for aviation enthusiasts without causing nuisance for local residents or congestion on the roads.” This new facility was officially opened by Liam McManus, an aviation enthusiast who lives locally; and so already benefits from these fantastic photo opportunities on a daily basis. Mr McManus was pleased to see these facilities provided and become available to his fellow enthusiasts. Parking charges are £2 for each hour and can be paid either by cash or card at the Car Park. -Pictured are (left to right) Wayne Poole (Manchester Airport Passenger Services Director), Liam McManus (Local Aviation Enthusiast) and Martin Mookerji (Manchester Airport Programme Delivery Manager)
