MANCHESTER Airport has unveiled a new private terminal, PremiAir.

The company said it offers a streamlined departure and adds extra comfort and a luxury experience for its guests, as well as fast baggage processing, a lounge with complimentary food and drink, as well as security.

PremiAir is currently partnering with 25 airlines including British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Qatar Airways, Etihad Airways and Cathay Pacific. Any passengers travelling with these carriers can make a booking through the PremiAir website.

Andrew Harrison, CEO of Manchester Airports Group (MAG), said: "It is a pleasure to see PremiAir officially up and running, offering a second to none experience for business and leisure guests alike.

"Manchester Airport is the first UK airport to introduce this innovative concept which is a result of months of hard work and dedication from MAG's teams.

"This great new option is an example of MAG's strategy of offering more of its own brands and products to its customers, from the car park right through to the departure gate.

"This approach is unique among major UK airports and gives our passengers the best possible choice during their journey.

"We can't wait to welcome guests to PremiAir, as an unforgettable beginning and end of their journey."

From £50 you can arrive with hand luggage only only an hour before your flight and be driven to the plane.

From £100 per person travellers can get complimentary food and drink, luggage handling, and transfer to the aircraft.
