HAVING BEEN known by several names over recent years, Infratil Airports Europe has confirmed that Kent International will now be known as Manston, Kent’s International Airport.
“The airport has a long history, and the local community has always known it as Manston.  We therefore felt it was important to include the name, but to help inbound travellers identify where Manston is, we have added ‘Kent’s international airport,” explained Tom Wilson, Chief Executive of Infratil Airports Europe.
The airport has recorded a strong first half to the year following Flybe’s launch of a domestic link to Edinburgh and the appointment of former London City executive Charles Buchannan as Chief Executive.
