For airports, for partners, for people. We are CAVU. Founded by MAG (Manchester Airports Group) and backed by over 80 years of aviation expertise, we’re striving to revolutionise airport travel, creating value for passengers and the businesses that serve them.
Our unrivalled knowledge of the passenger comes from our origins. Formed from the union of MAGO, MAG USA and our network of direct-to-consumer brands – who together drive market leading passenger spend for airports across the world – we have combined our resources to address evolving passenger needs today and exceed them as we move forward into tomorrow.
Pre-book, online or in the airport, our solutions make travel more seamless and enjoyable for passengers and more profitable for our clients and partners.
Our name is taken from the aviation, meteorology term, ‘Ceiling And Visibility Unlimited’ (CAVU), which designates the perfect flying condition, where the ceiling is more than 10,000ft and the visibility is more than ten miles.
