Enterprise expands in Manchester Airport

One of Europe’s largest car hire operators, Enterprise, has this month announced further details of their expansion. According to the firm, Enterprise is expanding its operations in Manchester Airport, tripling their fleet at the base.

This is due to an increase in the demand, with the current fleet and workforce stretched to fulfil reservations. In order to manage the new and improved fleet, Enterprise is recruiting for eight new jobs at the airport. These roles include a branch manager, five graduate management trainees and two customer service representatives. The business has also announced plans for an additional recruitment drive further down the line, wanting to recruit local people and inject money into the local economy.

The new team will manage an all-new fleet of hatchbacks, saloons, executive cars, people carriers and premium vehicles; wanting to offer something to all renters throughout the year. According to a recent research project, Manchester Airport is experiencing more and more visitors from the UK, USA and Europe, expecting further increases in passenger numbers in the coming months.

Gary Palmer, general manager at Enterprise, said the following:

“We’ve experienced major growth at Manchester Airport and needed more space to provide an ever-growing number of customers more choice and a wider range of vehicles.
“This expanded branch will help us provide a comprehensive range of vehicles both to travellers and to customers located nearby, allowing us to offer an even better service to leisure and business renters.”

And, it is not in Manchester Enterprise are experiencing growth. Over the course of the past 24 months, the company has rented cars to customers from 150 different countries. These include Nepal, Yemen and Vanuatu.
