We are committed to staying in touch with our community. To help provide the best possible service to the people who live in our neighbourhood, we hold regular Community Outreach 'surgeries' across the area, giving local residents the opportunity to raise queries and ask questions of members of our Community Relations Team.
Our Community Relations Team are on hand for face-to-face discussions about issues such as aircraft noise, the Sound Insulation Grant Scheme and Vortex Repair Scheme, our Community Trust Fund, public transport access and our environmental policies.
We also publish regular eNews throughout the year to keep the local community in touch with the latest developments at the Airport. We keep the community aware of temporary operational changes such as runway closures.

Community Review Our Community Review 2013/2014 summarises how we work with our neighbouring communities and details some of the activities Airport colleagues have been involved in over the last twelve months. We hope that you will appreciate the wide range of activities we have developed.

Mobile Outreach events
We will be holding mobile outreach sessions across the community through 2015.
In June/July (please note this period has changed from earlier advertising; as have some dates below) we will be consulting on the Manchester Airport Sustainability Plan; that will outline how we wish to use land in and around our site to mitigate our impacts and describe how accessibility to our site can be improved. It will set out how we intend to modernise our facilities to improve passenger, airlines and local communities’ experiences. The sessions in June/July below will give you the opportunity to find out more and feedback your comments; as part of our consultation.
