A Brief History
In 1928, Barton near Eccles was chosen as the site for Manchester's new aerodrome.
However, at the same time, Manchester City Council was also keen to establish a municipal airport which was built as a temporary airfield in Wythenshawe in 1929.
In 1930, Barton airport was completed including a control tower and large hanger.
In 1934, Barton Aerodrome was considered unsuitable for larger aircraft and so land at Ringway South of Manchester was earmarked for a new airport, and one year later, work began on the construction.
In 1938, Ringway Airport was officially opened and handled 7,600 passengers in its first 14 months.
The 2nd World War meant the airport was used as an aeroplane manufacturing centre and training centre.
In 1946, normal passenger services resumed and in 1947, passenger numbers increased to 34,000 a year.
Various renovations and extensions were carried out at the airport during the later 40's and early 50's.
By 1952, the airport handled 163,000 passengers a year, and in 1954, the airport saw its millionth passenger since the 2nd World War.
In 1962, a new £2.7 million terminals was opened, and a few years later, extensions were made to the runway.
In the late 70's, the airport saw more airlines fly to increased destinations, and the airport now employed 5,000 people.
In 1986, the World Freight Terminal opened.
In 1988 Manchester Airport celebrated its Golden Jubilee.
The airport launched an environment programme in 1990 to minimise the impact on the surrounding community, and in 1991, a development strategy was published with plans for the airport up to 2005.
Terminal 2 was opened in 1993, doubling the airport's capacity to around 20 million passengers a year.
In 1995, passenger numbers hit 15 million.
A second runway opened in 2001, and in 2003, Terminal 1 received a £5.5 million upgrade, and development of Terminal 2 was underway.
In 2003, Manchester Airport won the bid to house one of the retired Concorde fleet, which would be on display in the Aviation Viewing Park.
In 2004, the airport celebrated its 20 millionth passenger in the space of a year.
