More news, no ads


Stansted Airport owner Manchester Airports Group (MAG) will host a 'Runway to Recovery' meet-the-buyer event on Wednesday (Dec 8).

The virtual forum, which will be free to join for all, will be hosted by senior leaders from across the business, which includes its Stansted, Manchester and East Midlands bases.

The managing directors of all three, including Stansted's Steve Griffiths, will give an overview of their operations with information from MAG's procurement team about becoming a supplier.

The group works with hundreds of partners and suppliers at each of its airports, spending more than £780m a year.

Suppliers are critical to the effective running of the airports' operations, which collectively welcomed more than 60 million passengers in 2019.

MAG previously hosted a 'Meet the Buyer' event at Stansted for a number of years and, after its long-running success, decided to roll out the scheme across the group.

Neil Robinson, MAG's corporate social responsibility and airspace change director, said: "Our 'Runway to Recovery' meet-the-buyer event will provide SMEs from the areas local to all three of our airports with the opportunity to get a unique insight into how they could do business with us.

"By hearing from our airport managing directors and our procurement teams, businesses can see how their product or service could contribute to our supply chains which help our airports run seven days a week, 365 days a year."
