GATEWAY TO EUROPE
EGCC Manchester is one of only 2 airports in the UK which has parallel active
runways, and capable of taking the largest aircraft in service. It is Europes
11th busiest airport handing 22.4 million passengers in 2005. There are around
100 airlines, flying to 175 destinations, and it can handle 65 movements each
hour. It also handles around 150,000 tons of freight annually, mainly from the
747's of Far East carriers. It is home to a flying school, and light aircraft
can be seen taking off and landing regularly slotting in between the heavies,
regional jets and turboprops.
