VIDEO: Stunning fly-through shows Manchester Airport transformation

Manchester Airport Group (MAG) have produced a short video of how Manchester Airport could look in ten years time following the £1bn transformation programme.

The pilot’s-eye view flies over the runways, taxiways and new road system before sweeping down into a new ‘super terminal’.Entering via a ‘piazza-style’ forecourt, passengers will be able to walk around a glass-fronted, spacious space. The video also shows the new high-tech automatic bag drop machines.

MAG, which runs the airport, says that the terminal should be ready by 2023, with major improvements noticeable as early as 2019.
