We provide Air Traffic Control (ATC) services at
13 UK airports. At Manchester Airport we provide
tower, approach and engineering services.
This is an ATC service provided for the airport
and surrounding airspace. The controllers will
look out of the tower windows, as well as at the
ATC equipment, to give aircraft clearance to taxi,
take-off and land.
This is a radar-based control service located in
the lower part of the tower. Incoming aircraft are
managed from approximately 40 miles away
from the aerodrome, generally under 10,000ft.
An engineering team, based at the airport, are
responsible for maintaining air traffic control
services, such as radar and the Instrument
Landing System (ILS).

Manchester Airport is home to Concorde in the
Runway Visitor Park based on site. The tower is
the second tallest tower in the UK. The concrete
tower shaft was built in just 9 days. There are 350
steps to get to the top ... or you can take the lift.
