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.
