Atkins has been appointed to provide airport advisory services as part of Manchester Airports Group’s engineering, project management and design services framework. 

MAG comprises three airports – Manchester, East Midlands and London Stansted – and is the largest UK-owned airport operator, with 60 million passengers passing through its sites last year. 

Atkins will be supporting MAG across all three of its airports and is one of three consultancies who have been awarded a place on the Airport Advisory Services framework lots.

The appointment enables Atkins to support the airports on:

  • Airport capacity planning and modelling;
  • Airport development management;
  • Asset management, operations and maintenance;
  • Change management and business advisory;
  • Operational readiness and transition.

Dan Jones, client director at Atkins, said: “We look forward to supporting MAG across the range of Airport Advisory Services, working with each site to enhance passenger experience and support economic growth across each region – most notably in the north as transport infrastructure continues to play an integral role in the redistribution of the UK’s economy. The EPMDS framework is a key enabler for the transformative programmes being undertaken across the Manchester Airports Group and we’re excited to work closely with the group to help realise their vision.”
