A MAJOR promotional campaign centred on Manchester airport and its hinterland in the North of England has been launched to spur economic development post-Brexit.

Manchester airport's long-haul catchment area places around 22 million people and 60 per cent of all British businesses within a two-hour drive, notes London's Air Cargo News.



Northern UK airports can become the 'beating heart' of regional development to establish global connectivity for the Northern Powerhouse project as an investment alternative to London in a post-Brexit world, according to the report.



Promoters cite figures from the forthcoming NatWest Northern Powerhouse PMI (purchase managers index) report, which suggest that the Northern Powerhouse is making good progress, 'outperforming London in 29 out of the previous 36 months, but more still needs to be done'.



Lord Jim O'Neill, vice-chairman of the Northern Powerhouse Partnership, and Andrew Cowan, Manchester Airport chief executive, are among those saying that the creation of a 'super-connected, productive and internationally competitive Northern Powerhouse is not just important to the North itself, but sits at the heart of the desire to create a balanced and outward facing UK'.
