Did you know you could fly to every major city in the world, either one stop or non-stop from Manchester Airport? Over a million people haven’t heard and will be the focus of Manchester Airport’s attention during September. Starting this week, a national advertising campaign called ‘So Far, Yet So Near’ is launching to win back the estimated 1.5m passengers from the airport’s catchment area that fly long haul from other airports. The awareness campaign will include the unveiling of an outdoor advertising campaign focussing on destinations in America, the Far East and India.

The A380 is the world’s only twin-deck airliner and is the most environmentally-advanced airliner in the sky today. It offers better fuel economy than most hybrid passenger cars, and burns up to 20 per cent less fuel per seat than today's next largest aircraft. It is quieter too, generating less than half the noise of other aircraft on takeoff.
