Projects and Development

Manchester Ship Canal Developments (a joint venture between Peel and Manchester City Council), acquired the Airport in 2002. Since MSCD become owners of the airport more than £0.25 million has been invested in new facilities.

The site owners have ambitions for City Airport to be developed to its full potential and to grow the business aviation activities encouraging an increasing number of organisations and individuals to use the airport.

Continued investment in City Airport is underway to further promote the airfield for business and general aviation use allowing the users to benefit from the easy access to Manchester City Centre and the surrounding regions.

Current projects in the pipeline include;

  • Completion of internal link road between Airport and Heliport facility.
    This will allow us to improve efficiencies between the two facilities
