Manston for sale!

Of course we are saddened to think that existing jobs at Manston might be out at risk, but it confirms our long-standing concerns that Manston has been unable to become a commercial success for many reasons, not least its lack of infrastructure. Manston airport has consistently struggled to attract passengers and airline operators to the airport despite the massive amounts of investment into it.

If a fresh start means that new airport operators are able to breathe new life into Manston airport, we sincerely hope that Thanet District Council will take this as an opportunity to bring the whole operation under the proper control of a robust planning agreement that will protect the interests of all of Thanet’s residents. The prospect of intensification of night flights, while Manston airport has been unable to exploit its daytime capacity, has hung over the county for far too long.
