NEWS Manchester Airport breaks monthly passenger record

Manchester Airport saw a 6.2 per cent year-on-year increase in passengers last month, breaking its all-time record in the process – thanks partly to the poor weather in November 2014 and the rise in long-haul traffic. A grand total of 1,479,740 people travelled through the UK’s global gateway for the North in November 2015. This growth has raised the annual total of passengers to more than 23 million – an increase of five per cent for the same 12 month period year on year.
