Part of the Through Time series
Manchester Airport (EGCC) is a Category 10 international passenger airport located in Lancashire, UK, comprising three passenger terminals and a world freight terminal.
It operates long-haul and short-haul flights to around 225 destinations worldwide.
It is one of the largest centres of employment in the north-west of England, with more than 19,000 people directly employed on site, and supporting a further 42,500 jobs in the area.
It is the fourth busiest airport in England, and is the only British airport other than London's Heathrow Airport to operate two full-length parallel runways.
In 2013, Manchester recorded a passenger rate of 20.8 million, with the capacity to manage millions more. More than a million people a year visit the airport's Runway Visitor Park, which is home to the retired Concorde (G-BOAC), as well as a Monarch Airlines DC-10, a BEA Hawker Siddeley Trident 3B and an Avro 146-RJX - the last civil airliner to be fully built in the UK. In this book, Peter C. Brown explores the history of Manchester Airport, using a range of period and contemporary images.
