It’s six months since Airports of the World first met Marc Burns. He was then the Jet2.com’s Station Manager at Leeds Bradford but he’s been promoted recently and is now at Manchester, the UK’s third-busiest airport. The airline started self-handling there earlier this year, so Tony Mallett seized an opportunity to talk to Marc again to find out what’s changing and why.

Last year Jet2.com increased the number of aircraft it based at Manchester by 50%. The leisure airline now flies from the northwest of the UK to almost 50 other airports – 41 throughout the summer plus a few additional ski resorts in the winter, with destinations on offer as diverse as Alicante and Zante.
