Manchester to Add Private Terminal and RVP Update

 

Manchester Airport has announced it is to build a brand new, state-of-the-art private terminal for VIP users.

The airport has released these designs for the new place where passengers can get the private jet experience. It will be the only airport in the UK to offer such a terminal. It will be called PremiAir.

Passengers using PremiAir to depart from Manchester Airport will kick-off their journey in style, with a range of special services. They include: a personalised welcome, speedy baggage processing, an elegant lounge with complimentary food and drink, and a dedicated security channel. They will then be driven straight to their plane in a private car transfer.

Passengers arriving back into Manchester will also be able to use PremiAir, either as part of a round trip booking or as a standalone service. They 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.

Inside the PremiAir terminal, there will be a range of spaces designed to cater for different needs, ranging from individual travellers to larger groups.

The PremiAir terminal at Manchester will be located away from the existing passenger terminals, close to the existing private jet ramp and Runway Visitor Park. Construction work is now underway on the site. The existing Runway Visitor Park buildings will not be changed. The facility is due to open in mid-2019.

Speaking of the Runway Visitor Park, the view from here is now slightly obstructed because Manchester Airport has increased the height of the perimeter fence, making the mounds not quite tall enough to allow unobstructed photographs any more.

Have you visited recently? What’s the situation like?

    Just returned from EGCC last weekend.
    Not only is view going to be impaired but possibly at least one if not both mounds could be removed according to one”unoffical” comment. At this time any photos are cluttered with work equipment and other assortments.
    The viewing area towards the far end where most vistors / school parties congregate will not have any more worth to photographers.
    The only other option at this juncture will possibly be going across to the far side along the perimeter track which due to it being a country walk, we believe cannot be re-developed. The downside is no catering or comfort facilities, minimal parking unless using hotel chargeable parking (which if many enthusiasts start to use will become problematic and may well be curtailed at some point!) thus we will be subject to the elements at all times. In its favour, from a photographic perspective up until mid afternoon or so, pictures can be taken with good results with the sun moving from behind us thus light onto aircraft moving around towards the left (west).It means that even those with basic photographic equipment can still enjoy close up images early in the morning when departures operate westbound. And to date little or no visual interference!

    I went to the RVP on the 31st of January 2019 and was dismayed to see this new fence. It blocks the view of both the taxiway and also Runway 05L/23R. Photography is now impossible. I am not at all happy. I would say the view is more than “slightly” obstructed.
