Kent Manston Airport
Kent's International Airport lies in the village of Manston, in the Thanet district of Kent. It is located about thirteen miles (20km) North East of Cantebury, and was formely known as London Manston Airport. In nineteen eighty nine Manston was renamed Kent International Airport and had a new terminal (officialy opened by the Duchess of York).
Dan Air operated several charter flights to the Spanish airport Palma, in Mallorca in the Summer months. Then during the early nineties Aspro Holidays offered Summer charter services with it's airline Inter European Airways to Palma, and later to Crete. There are two museums at the airport, The Spitfire and Hurricane Memorial and The RAF Manston History Museum, and are both located to the North of the airfield.
There is a single runway at Kent International Airport and the flightpath heads directly over the seaside town of Ramsgate. The town lies just over half a mile from the runway, and Manston village lies North East of the passenger terminal. Newmarket Holidays continue to offer charter flights in the Summer season, including destinations such as Porto, in Portugal and Naples in Italy.
