Manchester Airports buys SkyParkSecure

Manchester Airports Group (MAG), the operator of Manchester, London Stansted and East Midlands airports, said on Monday it acquired Blackpool-based SkyParkSecure for an undisclosed sum.

SkyParkSecure is a price comparison and booking agent which allows customers to compare and book more than 300 parking options across 28 UK airports.

In 2017, SkyParkSecure generated revenues of £2.2 million.

Andrew Harrison, CEO, Airport Services, MAG, said: “SkyParkSecure is another great acquisition for MAG’s Airport Services division.

“We have enjoyed a great relationship with Dean and the SkyParkSecure team having traded closely with them for a number of years.

“They will add unbeatable expertise, tech and vision to our existing talent. SkyParkSecure is a successful, growing business and we are delighted to begin working more closely with the team.

Dean Pailing, founder of SkyParkSecure, added: “Having spent the last twelve years building the SkyParkSecure brand and a base of over two million loyal customers, we’re delighted that our business has been acquired by MAG and that we will now have the opportunity to take both businesses to the next level in the online airport parking sector.”
