Handling 100,000 passengers for the EURO 2024 competition will add to the overall growth plans that Manchester Airport is seeking.

The airport has been growing in intensity over the last few weeks.

Over the Summer, the airport will have new airlines such as Royal Jordanian (Already started), Juneyao Air & Royal Air Maroc to name a few.

It is news like this that will help Manchester Airport continue to grow onwards.

Away from EURO 2024, the airport shared the report from Arup, where passenger numbers could exceed 60m by 2050.

In conclusion, it is clearly going to be a busy Summer season for Manchester Airport.

With EURO 2024 on the horizon, this will add to what is already going to be a jampacked period of growth.

Looking ahead, all eyes will be on how this is handled by the airport.

But for now, let’s see what the intake of passengers will look like for EURO 2024 moving forward.
