Manchester Airport

Manchester Airport is an international airport in Ringway, Manchester, England, 7.5 nautical miles (13.9 km; 8.6 mi) south-west of Manchester city centre. In 2016, it was the third busiest airport in the United Kingdom in terms of passenger numbers. The airport comprises three terminals, a goods terminal and is the only airport in the UK other than London's Heathrow Airport to operate two runways over 3,280 yd (2,999 m) in length. Manchester Airport covers an area of 560 hectares (1,400 acres) and has flights to 199 destinations, placing the airport thirteenth globally for total destinations served.

Officially opened on 25 June 1938, it was initially known as Ringway Airport. In the  Second  World War, as  RAF Ringway , it was a base for the  Royal Air Force.  The airport is owned and managed by the  Manchester Airports Group , a holding company owned by the Australian finance house IFM Investors and the ten metropolitan borough councils of Greater Manchester, with Manchester City Council owning the largest stake.

Ringway, after which the airport was named, is a village with a few buildings and church at the southern edge of the airport. The airport handled 25,600,000 passengers in 2016, a record total, and has capacity for up to 50,000,000 passengers annually. This potential figure is limited by the airport's restriction to 61 aircraft movements per hour. Future developments include the £800,000,000 Manchester Airport City logistics, manufacturing, office and hotel space next to the airport and transport improvements such as the SEMMMS relief road and a High Speed 2 station.
