Travel recovery remained strong in September for MAG
Passenger recovery across Manchester Airports Group (MAG) continues to be strong, figures published today show.
In September, MAG - which owns and operates Manchester, London Stansted and East Midlands Airports - served 5.3 million passengers, equivalent to 86% of the volumes handled in the same month in 2019.
Manchester and London Stansted both served more than two million passengers across the month, representing 86% and 91% of pre-pandemic traffic respectively.
East Midlands Airport served over 350,000 passengers, equating to 68% of 2019 traffic.
As MAG looks beyond its immediate recovery from the effects of the pandemic, the Group welcomed the global aviation industry’s landmark climate target to net zero by 2050 at the 41st ICAO Assembly. This unified target was the strongest demonstration yet of the industry’s commitment to delivering a greener, more sustainable future.
MAG is proud to be playing a leading role in driving forward the decarbonisation agenda, in partnership with the UK government through its Jet Zero Council, and the rest of our industry. The Group has its own target to be net zero by 2038, in line with domestic targets set out in the Government’s Jet Zero Strategy earlier this year.
