Traffic at MAG airports taking off

The UK’s largest group of airports has seen the strongest month of recovery since the pandemic began, figures for October reveal.

Manchester Airports Group (MAG), which owns and operates Manchester, London Stansted and East Midlands Airports, served just more than five million passengers in October - 93% of passengers served in the same month in 2019.

The figure is up 7% on last month, with passenger demand stimulated by the October half-term school holidays.

Both London Stansted and Manchester Airports served around 2.3 million passengers, equating to 94% and 93% of pre-pandemic traffic.

Clearwater are proud that MAG is a longstanding customer for whom we have worked on many projects, both at London Stansted and Manchester airports. The services we have provided have been many and varied from mechanical and electrical design to complex BIM modelling projects. We estimate that we have worked on several kilometres of corridors and numerous facilities throughout these airports. More recently we have worked on several projects airside including most recently work on the baggage handling systems that run through the buildings. Our track record of delivering complex projects for the MOD has given MAG the confidence to work with us on even the most sensitive projects.

Matt Cook MD of Clearwater commented “Being trusted to work on projects such as the Hold Baggage Screening facility at Manchester Airport, gives you a real insight into the inner workings of the airports. We approach all projects with a keen eye to detail and a robust checking process to ensure the end results deliver seamless solutions. Personally as an avid travel fan this project has been eye opening to the investment that is made by airports to keep things running smoothly”.
