A ‘more than an airport’ promotion will see Manchester airport showcase the north of England.

More than 50 companies and individuals from across the region feature in the visual campaign.

A series of sub-themes aim to highlighting the role Manchester plays in creating jobs, inspiring young people, enabling trade links and attracting investors and visitors to the north.

The images will also be used across social media, online and at various sites.

Airport CEO Andrew Cowan said: “We know Manchester airport is the UK’s global gateway in the north, performing a vital role in driving international exports for businesses of all sizes across the region, as well as attracting visitors, students and investors to this great part of the world.

“What the creation of this campaign has done is enable us to fully understand the many ways in which the international connectivity we provide truly makes the north a great place to visit and do business with.

“We are also proud to be able to showcase the many community groups and organisations we support each year and promote businesses who are doing great things around the world through the eye-catching imagery.”
