A bit of good news for Manchester

Manchester Airport officials announced that the airport enjoyed its tenth consecutive year of growth in passenger boardings. The facility experienced an 11% increase in traffic during 2004.

MHT's continued growth is almost unheard of in the current climate, so kudos are in order. The Manchester airport has succeeded in large part because it has rejected the negative and insular mindset that permeates many of Manchester's municipal institutions. Kevin Dillon and his crew have shown business savvy, marketing smarts, and a committment to keeping their eyes on long-term goals.

Well done, ladies and gentlemen!
