Manchester Airport launches new look terminal

Mon, 06 Jul, 2009

Manchester Airport has re-launched its Terminal one after a lengthy renovation.

After two-years of work and an extensive re-design Manchester Airport has re-opened the terminal with a host of fresh features.

The project, which cost in the region of £50 million, is part of a larger project to improve passenger flow through the airport as well as introducing a large range of shops and refreshment areas.

Dixons, Kurt Geiger, Fat Face, Mango, Monsoon, Starbucks and SoHo are just some of the retailers that have opened outlets in the new areas, with a total of 52 units being available.

During the design process, psychologists were hired to analyse the body language of travellers passing through the terminal.

Managing director of the airport, Andrew Cornish, said: "Our terminal redesigns have to withstand the test of time.

"With the work finished in Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 set to follow shortly after, the future looks bright."

More than 100 airlines fly from Manchester Airport and service more than 200 global destinations.
