Sat, 18 Apr, 2009

Manchester Airport will gain a new lounge this summer courtesy of Emirates.

The airline will begin building the 8,500 sq ft business class space soon and has suggested it may increase its capacity of flights to Dubai from the hub as a result.

As part of the move, the operator will move its flights into over from Terminal Two into its One counterpart from June 1st.

Senior vice-president at the firm Salem Obaidalla commented that its Manchester services had been one of their most successful arms in the UK, even during the current recession.

The company's flagship plane, the A380, will now be able to fly customers to their destinations as a result of the expansion of services.

People parking at the airport can reach it from the M56 motorway in the southern area of the city and then follow the signs to the terminal where their flight is taking off from.
