In using Manchester Airport as a passenger or to meet somebody at the Arrivals Hall, you may not have seen the Memorial Garden, chilled out in one of the three Prayer Rooms, or taken in the view from the rooftop.
From the creation of one of the the world’s first production-line aircraft factories in 1910 to Manchester International Airport’s current status as one of the busiest hubs, Manchester has enjoyed a significant aviation history.
Steve Bourne, who has been conducting Airport tours for six years, will explain how the airport works, visit hidden places and relate stories of how the site was used during WW2 and the many changes that have occurred through 100 years of aviation in the Manchester region.
We begin our tour at Manchester Airport’s railway station ticket barrier and end watching the Emirates A380 “super Jumbo” arrive from Dubai. After this, an optional excursion can be made (at extra cost) to the Runway Visitor Park, where static aircraft include an RAF Nimrod and British Airways Concorde.
