Manston Airport statement: "All flights will continue as normal"

Manston Airport Management Statement

“In March 2012 it was announced that Manston Airport was being put up for sale. We are very pleased to have found an acquirer with a vision for Manston Airport’s future development.

All flights at the airport and other airport activity continue as normal, without change.

Whilst the sale process has been conducted over the past months there's been a steady growth in traffic through the airport with the start of KLM’s twice daily flights to Amsterdam. Additionally this month we have won the first freighter service into the UK operated by Saudi Airlines twice weekly.”
