Nearly two million travel on new Manchester Airport line

Nearly two million journeys were made on Metrolink’s Manchester Airport line in its first year.

Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) celebrated the line’s first anniversary on November 3. It said in the first 12 months of operation 1.88 million journeys were made on the £400 million line, which opened a year early after a project that required 3,412,123 hours of work to deliver. 

  • An in-depth feature looking at the Manchester Airport line is published in RAIL 787 on November 11.
