As the first phase of the £1 billion transformation programme at Manchester Airport, the opening of Pier One marks the beginning of big changes scheduled at the airport.

Passengers flying out of the UK’s third largest airport will now be welcomed onto a giant new pier, which connects to Terminal 2, for the first time.

The 216-metre pier provides extensive panoramic views of the airfield and will be used by all airlines currently operating out of T2. The first flights to depart were both operated by TUI Airways.
