Manchester Airport

It's the third busiest airport in the United Kingdom in terms of passenger numbers and is the only British airport other than London Heathrow to operate two runways. Manchester Airport provides flights to over 200 destinations, with numerous transport links and is served by the M56 motorway and by Manchester Airport railway station which provides extensive rail connections.

By Car

The airport is a 20-minute drive from Manchester city centre and is reached by the M56 motorway, with a dedicated approach road from the motorway M56/J5 and is the main route used by traffic to reach the airport. There are also minor local roads serving the airport from the north (Wythenshawe) and the east (Heald Green). The M56/A538 road junction serves the World Freight Terminal, to the west of the airport. The A538 runs east-west serving the local towns of Altrincham and Wilmslow.

By Train

Manchester Airport railway station forms part of The Station and is located between Terminals 1 and 2. It is linked to the terminals using a Skylink moving walkway. Trains are operated either by Northern Rail or TransPennine Express and connect the airport to Manchester Piccadilly Station and other railway stations mainly throughout northern England.

By Bus and Coach

The Stations serve many locations throughout Greater Manchester including the 24-hour bus service Skyline (service 43) which runs every 10 minutes (every 30 minutes at night) to Manchester city centre via Wythenshawe, Northenden, Withington, Fallowfield and Rusholme. There is also Skyline (service 19) operating every hour to Altrincham via Wythenshawe and Sale. A network of National Express coach services serve Manchester Airport and operate to destinations throughout UK.


Taxi ranks are situated by arrivals at all three terminals. Passengers driving to the airport can use the drop-off areas outside the terminal buildings, but when picking up passengers the airport requires that they park in the short stay car parks provided for a fee. Long stay car parks are situated both on and off site.

Tram Link

The airport line will be one spur of the line from St Werburgh's Road, to East Didsbury and Manchester Airport, which is due to open in 2016.
