Manchester Airport saw a 6.2 per cent year-on-year increase in passengers last month, breaking its all-time record in the process – thanks partly to the poor weather in November 2014 and the rise in long-haul traffic.A grand total of 1,479,740 people travelled through the UK’s global gateway for the North in November 2015.

This growth has raised the annual total of passengers to more than 23 million – an increase of five per cent for the same 12 month period year on year.Scheduled international flights were up 14.55 per cent on November last year, keeping ahead of the curve year-on-year.
Also, thanks to a host of new routes launched this year, destinations in the USA and Asia are easier than ever to reach from Manchester, as are short haul destinations in Europe, boosting passenger numbers as Brits seek out city breaks and sunshine escapes due to the poor weather.
