Manchester Airport in the UK has unveiled plans to open a private terminal to provide travellers with the experience of a private jet when flying on commercial airlines.

The new PremiAir terminal will be open to all passengers irrespective of airline or destination, with prices starting at £50.

The facility will be completely separate to the airport’s existing three terminals and will cater to different services in line with individual passengers’ preferences.

Passengers departing from the PremiAir terminal will be offered a personalised welcome, faster baggage processing, a lounge with complimentary food and drink, and a dedicated security channel.

“We’re offering something unique for all of our passengers, and creating a completely new way to travel.”

Travellers will be driven straight to their aircraft in a private car transfer.

The PremiAir terminal will also be available to incoming passengers as a standalone service or part of a round-trip booking. They will receive a car transfer direct from the plane and have access to a dedicated passport control service, as well as the PremiAir lounge.

Manchester Airport Group (MAG) airport services CEO Andrew Harrison said: “By introducing PremiAir, we’re offering something unique for all of our passengers, and creating a completely new way to travel.

“It is something a large number of customers have been telling us for some time they would be interested in and we hope the services it will offer will appeal to a wide range of passengers, whether they are travelling for business, want to mark a special occasion or just want to add something different to their experience.

“The launch of PremiAir at Manchester Airport is the beginning of an exciting new project for MAG and we plan to assess opportunities to introduce it at other airport sites in the future.”

Construction of the new private terminal is currently underway on a site next to the Runway Visitor Park and the facility is scheduled to become operational by the middle of this year.
