Manchester-based Citypress was approached by MAG to provide corporate comms for the scheme, which is billed as the biggest single construction project to take place in Greater Manchester to date.

Jonathan Oates, external comms director at MAG, said: "The business places huge emphasis on communicating with the diverse range of stakeholders that have an interest in airport life. Manchester Airport is in many ways the equivalent of a small town and we are committed to not only communicating the benefits that these changes will deliver but also answering any concerns that people may have."

Ricky Ambury, director at Citypress, said: "Citypress is advising a number of organisations that are either based in the North-West or investing in the region, which are looking to create an impact as part of the Government-backed drive to create a 'northern powerhouse'."

The Manchester Airport Transformation Programme has received endorsement from Chancellor George Osborne, who said it "plays a key role in this one-nation Government’s plan to rebalance the UK economy".
