PEGASUS AIRLINES ANNOUNCES ITS SECOND UK ROUTE


TURKISH LOW-COST CARRIER Pegasus Airlines has announced it will launch flights between Manchester airport and Istanbul’s Sabiha Gokcen on 1 July. Manchester is the airline’s second


base in the UK after Stansted and the new flights will operate five days a week on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. The route will allow passengers flying


from Manchester to connect to further destinations across Turkey, including Alanya, Antalya, Bodrum, Dalaman and Izmir, as well as international flights to Abu Dhabi, Doha, Dubai, Riyadh and Tbilisi, among others.


STAGECOACH BARRED FROM FRANCHISE BIDS


THE DEPARTMENT FOR TRANSPORT (DfT) has barred Stagecoach from three franchise bids across the UK because its submissions did not meet pension rules. The ban applies to the South Eastern,


West Coast and East Midlands franchises, the latter of which has been awarded to Abellio from August. According to the DfT, Stagecoach’s bids


for the franchises were “non-compliant” because they did not meet pension rules, which the rail operator claimed come with a long-term funding risk. Group chief executive Martin Griffiths said the conditions set out for the


franchise bids are “more evidence that the current franchising model is not fit for purpose”. He added: “It also further damages the already fragile investor confidence in the UK rail market and it undermines the involvement of two of the last British transport groups who are part of running Britain’s railway.” Stagecoach had bid for the East Midlands franchise on its own and had


submitted a bid for South Eastern with Alstom. It also put in a joint bid with SNCF and Virgin Group for the West Coast franchise. The company was a franchise partner with Virgin Trains on the East Coast


Mainline and had a 90 per cent stake in the operation, but the DfT took services back under government control last year.


Manchester airport opens new pier in Terminal 2


MANCHESTER AIRPORT HAS OPENED a new 216m-long pier at Terminal 2 as part of its £1 billion transformation programme. The new pier is equipped with 11 gates and airbridges and more than 1,400 seats. Manchester airport says the pier was built using 300 individual panes of glass to offer panoramic views of the airfield.


The next phase of the programme is another extension to Terminal 2, which will more than double in size. It is set to open in summer 2020 and will add 40 new food and beverage outlets and shops, with another 40 to follow when the existing building is fully refurbished and reopened in 2022. Additional piers are set to open in 2022 and 2024.
