The Concorde Conference Centre at Manchester Airport is to open a new restaurant with dining space for 110 people, it has been reported.
Positioned at one end of the £1.1 million unique events facility, in which a Concorde hovers over delegates, the Ringway Restaurant will employ its own chef and kitchen team and will be operated as a concession by Bricar, according to the Manchester Evening News.
A glass wall around the restaurant, which is due to open on July 14th, will mean that diners can see the famous aircraft and have views of the airport's runways.
Ed Ainslie, director of Concorde Conferences, told the newspaper that the new development is another boost for the already successful facility.
"It is a very exciting venue for a lot of people. It is going very well and we are very pleased with the level of inquiries," he said.
Meanwhile, Lesley Tomlinson, chief executive of Manchester's G-Mex conference centre, recently told the newspaper that the city can grow even further as a major business tourism destination.
