Talk out of the Airport at the moment is that Jez is back and telling all he is going to turn one of the car parks into a fast food drive through to make it pay its way. 

This is the kind of stupid sh1t that gets done here, the gov funding competition with private enterprise.

Its likely to be a drive through with people brought there free of charge from all over the island via the Bus Vannin Taxi minibus service...........................

If there's any truth in this it will be the long-since-mothballed Car park 3 

 

Nowadays, Car Park 1 and 2 are referred to as Short Stay and Long Stay

Three years ago there was talk of an M & S food outlet in the disued car park on the left as you drive in adjacent to the Freeport.  Maybe it is going to happen?  Would be handy to pick up food when you get home.

Seems the 1.5 to 2 million passengers don't have many cars LOL .

To be fair to Reynolds the acres of unused car parks weren't her daft idea, they came from her predecessor who was also responsible for the massive roundabouts that were needed to control the zillions of cars that would come to the Airport and then need parking.  The idea was that the Manx would be so impressed that they would stop getting friends and relatives to drop them off for their flights and instead be happy to pay long term parking charges when they went on holiday.  Because that's how it works in the UK so it must be the same here.

Didn't work.  Funny that.

She has stuck to the development and spend mantra ever since she was appointed, and to be fair has been very good at it. Her bullshit around passenger numbers was a joy to behold, the one area forgotten is that what an airport actually needs is aeroplanes and strategic direction none of which we have ever had. We are now stuck with Walter Mitty FFS.
