Manchester Airport has two runways. We can use both runways during the day time, but planning permission does not allow us to use Runway 2 between 10pm and 6am, unless we are doing maintenance on Runway 1 or there is an emergency.
Communities asked us to keep the use of both runways at the same time to a minimum. Since Runway 2 opened we have been able to restrict our opening in the middle of the day and at the weekends. As our movement numbers have increased over recent years, we have changed our hours for dual runway use to meet the needs of our business.
In 2018 we produced a datasheet that explained changes made then in more detail and the presentation used to describe the changes to Councillors that we met.

For this reason we asked Steve Wilkinson, Chair of the Manchester Airport Consultative Committee, to Chair a Stakeholder Reference Group. Find out more about the Committee by clicking here. This group have overseen the way that we have provided information to communities, ensured the information is accurate and that we are available to answer queries. Members included:
