Manchester Airport is the air travel hub of the North of England.
The busiest airport in the UK outside of London, you can fly pretty much anywhere from here – and flights are generally cheaper from here than from anywhere else in the North.
The airport’s three terminals offer flights to almost 200 destinations across the globe.
Manchester Airport’s two lounges are available to relax in while you wait for your journey to begin. These can be pre-booked and both offer free Wi-Fi, unlimited hot and soft drinks and a selection of wine, beers and spirits.
You can stay the night in one of the many hotels that surround the airport. You can pay a fee to fast track through security, shop in duty free and eat in the vast food courts within the terminal building. Your holiday really does start at the airport here!
Fun fact about Manchester Airport: it is the only airport in the country (other than Heathrow, of course) to boast two runways over 2,999m in length.
The easiest way to get to the airport is by taxi.
The airport has its own train station served by Northern Rail and Transpennine Express Services. You can also catch the Metrolink tramway from the city.
If you choose to drive, you’ll find the terminal buildings 9 miles south of Manchester City Centre. Parking charges apply, even for picking up and dropping off. If you want to leave your loved ones at the free drop off point, they’ll have to catch a shuttle bus to the terminal.
You can also catch a National Express coach to Manchester Airport. Stagecoach visits the airport at various times of day.
