About Manchester Airport Group

Following the acquisition of London Stansted in 2013, the Manchester Airports Group became the largest UK-owned airport operator. It now serves around 46 million passengers through London Stansted, Bournemouth, East Midlands and Manchester airports.


What did they want to achieve?

The Group's company car policy was no longer meeting their needs and required a complete overhaul. Company employees were unsure of their car options and so were increasingly opting for a cash alternative, which was creating unnecessary admin. The management team were also unable to access clear and useful data on whole life costs for their fleet – or assess the impact of staff choosing cash.


How we helped

We helped the business assess the real costs of their fleet, before completely redesigning their company car policy. The revised policy was clearer, fairer and based on whole life cost. This meant that as well as including the contract hire costs, other costs such as insurance, depreciation, VAT and tax were also taken into account.
