ADELTE has signed a contract with Manchester Airports Group to design, manufacture and install 11 new passenger boarding bridges at Manchester airport.

The new bridges will be apron drive models with glass-sided tunnels, which will serve to protect passengers from exposure to inclement weather, and will also allow for more efficient and rapid turnarounds at Pier 1 of Terminal 2. The new GSE will be installed by in late 2018 and early 2019 as part of the first phase of the £1bn Manchester Airport Transformation Programme, MAN-TP.

MAN-TP will see passengers and airlines given access to state-of-the-art facilities and enable the airport to handle 45m passengers a year: an increase of almost 20m compared to today. The new terminal building is expected to be operational by 2020.

"We are enthusiastic about returning to Manchester and being able to participate in this ambitious project of transforming the infrastructure and facilities of this modern airport so that it can receive, in the best conditions, the fast-growing number of passengers," commented Jordi Floreta, Vice President and Commercial Director of ADELTE.

Rob Stewart, Delivery Director for MAN-TP, added: “We are delighted to award this contract to ADELTE and look forward to working with them over the coming years to further enhance the customer experience at Manchester airport”.

This deal comes two decades after ADELTE first provided boarding bridges to the airport.
