Manchester airport has appointed a former Tui agent as travel trade marketing manager.
Olivia Bussey joins the UK’s third busiest airport as it gears up for its “busiest ever summer”.
Bussey’s role will see her look to strengthen ties with the trade, as well as organising and delivering events throughout the airport’s catchment area.
She will be responsible for promoting its 220-plus destinations and 70 airlines to the UK travel trade.
Patrick Alexander, head of marketing, said: “We’re delighted that Olivia has joined the team. She brings with her an extensive knowledge of how the travel industry works.
“As the airport continues to grow with a £1bn transformation programme and more new routes coming onboard, it’s hugely important that travel agents come on the journey with us.”
Bussey added: “With so much going on at the airport, it’s a really exciting time to join the team. I can’t wait to get out on the road and spread the ‘Fly Manchester’ message to travel agents across our catchment area.”
