Manchester Airports Group offers £1.3m prize for first zero-carbon commercial flight

Manchester Airports Group has offered a prize of five years’ free landing fees to the first airline to operate a zero-emissions commercial flight, as it pledged to become a net-zero carbon airport by 2038. Click here to read the full story. 

Britain’s biggest airport group, which owns Manchester and Stansted airports, has upped the ante on the wider industry’s commitment to achieve net-zero by 2050, and a similar one-year incentive offered by Heathrow.

It is estimated that the prize for the first zero-carbon flight will be worth around £1.3m in waived charges.
