Construction Europe - Mike Hayes

Work has started on the construction of a new pier at the UK’s Manchester Airport Group (MAG), in the latest phase of its €1.5 billion Transformation Programme.

The pier will connect to the airport’s Terminal 2 and is the largest element in this phase of the expansion project.

The new pier will feature 12 boarding gates and flexible aircraft stands capable of accommodating next-generation planes.

It will also be equipped to handle the Airbus A380, currently the largest passenger aircraft in operation.

The airport insists construction of the pier will prioritise sustainability, employing techniques to reduce embodied carbon emissions by up to 40%.
