Manchester Airport unveils new terminal flooring

Manchester Airport has unveiled its newly renovated floor for its Terminal 1 building.

Manchester Airport has unveiled its newly renovated floor for its Terminal 1 building.

The new £10 million bespoke project was completed over just one weekend, using a new innovative material that is ready to use two hours after installation.

Manchester Airport’s new security area flooring stretches across 27,000 ft of the Terminal 1 building and was custom designed by the airport staff.

The flooring is a mixture of blues and silvers that are designed to catch the light in the terminal.

Tony Fleming, of airport architectural firm Aedas, said the flooring style "has not been used before".

"We are pleased with the end result and it fits perfectly with Manchester Airport’s vision of a clean, simple and inviting environment for Terminal 1" he added.

The floor looks set to be put to good use, with airline Flybe announcing earlier this week that it is to resume flights to the airport, which were initially axed following its takeover of BA Connect in 2007.
