New £30m cargo facility
One of the world’s largest air services providers, dnata, has committed to a new air cargo facility at Manchester Airport’s World Freight Terminal. The build to suit premises – to be known as ‘dnata City North’ – are being developed by MAG Property, the property and development arm of Manchester Airports Group (MAG).
Representing investment of over £30m, the new Grade A 145,000 sq ft high bay facility, will include 20,000 sq ft of office space over two floors. Particularly well situated for ease of airfield access, the new facility will allow dnata to consolidate and grow its Manchester operations with capacity to handle over 150,000 tonnes per annum.
It will become operational in late Summer 2020 and stands to benefit from the Airport’s ongoing £1 billion transformation programme which in addition to passenger and terminal facilities includes the remodelling of taxiways and additional aircraft stands to accommodate more of the world’s largest aircraft.
