Metrolink Manchester Airport line turns one!
3rd November marks the first anniversary of the Manchester Airport line.
Since it opened (a year ahead of schedule), nearly 1.9m passenger journeys have taken place which was above and beyond the numbers expected.
The line – which required 3,412,123 hours of work to deliver – has brought with it economic growth and opportunity
To mark the anniversary, tram number 3080 made the same journey it did 12 months ago as the first tram to arrive at the airport.
