Across the Group, we now serve over 100 airlines and each day we see around 1,000 aircraft take off and land at our four airports.

Key priorities include the on-going investment in our infrastructure to improve the customer journey and enable future growth, with the terminal transformation at London Stansted Airport completed during the year, and further planning and design of the significant transformation of Manchester Airport, which will see £1 billion invested over the next 10 years.

With the continued growth we’ve achieved this year, together with our robust longterm financing position and the strong long-term prospects for the Group, we are pleased to continue sustainable and growing dividends to our shareholders.
