Wed, 10 Nov, 2010
Manchester Airport walked away with the highest achievement at this year's British Travel Awards.
Bosses took home the prize for best major UK airport for the third year in a row earlier this week.
Andrew Harrison, managing director of Manchester Airport, told the Manchester Evening News that the accolade was an "accomplishment".
He stated: "The award successes are not only testament to the hard work and achievements of each and every one of our colleagues, but clearly demonstrates our continued commitment and investment in our passengers."
More than 220,000 passengers voted for the British Travel Awards, which took place last Thursday (November 4th 2010).
London travel hub's Gatwick Airport and Heathrow were given the silver and bronze awards in the same category.
Manchester Airport also has a corporate following as it picked up the silver gong for best airport for business travel, losing out to Heathrow Airport.
East Midlands Airport won the prize for best regional UK airport.
