How we operate.
Manchester Airport has two runways. We currently use both runways during the day time, but planning permission does not allow us to use Runway 2 between 10pm and 6am, unless we are doing maintenance on Runway 1 or there is an emergency.
Communities asked us to keep the use of both runways at the same time to a minimum. Since Runway 2 opened we have been able to restrict our opening in the middle of the day and at the weekends. As our movement numbers have increased over recent years, we will need to change our hours for dual runway use to meet the needs of our business.
Why are we making these changes?
Our business is growing; in the last 12 months we have had more than 27 million passengers with larger aircraft and more flights. The changes will bring about more efficient operations, benefiting airlines and passengers by reducing delays, and offer us opportunities to bring down time when aircraft taxi, therefore reducing ground noise and emissions.
