Manchester Airport, the third busiest airport in the United Kingdom by annual passenger numbers, has released a fly-through video showing what its new Terminal 2 will look like.
Manchester Airports Group announced a 10-year, £1 billion ($1.25bn) investment programme in June 2015. The project centres on the expansion and reconfiguration of Terminal 2, while Terminal 3 will also be upgraded.
Other key features include the introduction of new and enlarged airside transfer facilities, including direct linkage between Terminals 2 and 3; the development of a US pre-clearance facility; the introduction of the latest technology in a new, enlarged security hall; the introduction of a host of new customer friendly enhancements, including self-service check-in facilities and around 50 F&B and retail outlets; the creation of a future-proofed operational airport environment that provides greater flexibility and resilience to cater to evolving airline and security needs; and the introduction of new stands and piers, offering improved departure gate facilities.
