Manchester Airport is set to open a new luxury terminal offering passengers a ‘private jet experience’ – even if they are flying with a budget airline.

New images have been released of the PremiAir terminal, where travellers will be able to start their journeys from £50.

Perks include speedy check-in and bag drop, complimentary food and drink, a dedicated security channel and being driven straight to aircraft in a private car transfer.

The terminal will be the first of its kind in the UK and will be an entirely separate building to the three existing terminals at Manchester Airport.

Passengers arriving at Manchester can also use the service and will benefit from a car transfer direct from their plane and use of a dedicated passport control service.

They will also be able to relax in the PremiAir lounge while their luggage is returned personally to them.

It is hoped the premium service will appeal to passengers who are travelling on business, for a special occasion or simply want to add a touch of luxury to their trip.

Andrew Harrison, CEO of airport services at Manchester Airport Group (MAG), said: ‘By introducing PremiAir, we’re offering something unique for all of our passengers, and creating a completely new way to travel.

‘It is something a large number of customers have been telling us for some time they would be interested in and we hope the services it will offer will appeal to a wide range of passengers, whether they are travelling for business, want to mark a special occasion or just want to add something different to their experience.

‘The launch of PremiAir at Manchester Airport is the beginning of an exciting new project for MAG and we plan to assess opportunities to introduce it at other airport sites in the future.

‘At MAG, we are always looking for new and innovative products to improve the passenger experience, and PremiAir is a significant addition to our portfolio.’

While Andrew Cowan, CEO of Manchester Airport, added: ‘It is an exciting period in the history of Manchester Airport, as we continue to add new routes and deliver the largest investment we have ever made in our facilities.

‘Our £1billion transformation will give the North the international gateway it deserves, while connecting it to the best leisure and business destinations around the world.

‘PremiAir will add another dimension to that, giving all of our customers the opportunity to tailor the airport experience to their own personal preferences, adding touches of luxury at affordable prices.’

Construction work is now underway next to the Runway Visitor Park, where the new terminal will be sited. It is due to open mid-2019.
