While most people fly to London Heathrow when travelling to the U.K., further north the rapidly expanding Manchester International Airport is becoming a powerhouse of aviation and air transportation.
Major expansion plans are underway, with the intention of making Manchester Airport a World Logistics Hub by 2030. The expansion could make Manchester one of the most important international airports in the world. Flights from Manchester with Qatar Airways link you to major destinations in Europe, the Middle East and Far East.
Transportation and parking
Manchester Airport has its own rail terminal, which is connected to all terminals using a Skylink moving walkway. A Metrolink service from Cornbrook station to the airport runs every 12 minutes.
The airport also has its own central ground transport hub - The Station - which connects buses, coaches and rail services under one roof. Over 300 trains, 100 coaches and 500 buses use the facility daily.
Short-stay parking areas are adjacent to each terminal, and a long-stay parking area is situated next to Terminal 2. There are also two ‘Jetparks,’ which are long-stay car parks approximately a mile from the terminals.
Arriving at Manchester
Flights from Manchester with Qatar Airways depart from Terminal 2. This expansive terminal has 20 gates, 14 of which have air bridges. An expanded air-side departure lounge, improved security and a select choice of amenities makes this a very relaxed and comfortable departure point.

Pakistan’s second largest city and awash with golden-domed mosques, beautiful traditional buildings and stunning landmarks, Lahore is considered to be the country’s cultural capital. This energetic and vibrant city also offers visitors excellent retail and culinary experiences, as well as one of the warmest welcomes you’ll receive anywhere in the world.
Book a flight to Lahore with Qatar Airways and experience the true warmth and vibrancy of Pakistan. From the magnificent Elephant Gate that sits at the entrance of its walled city, to the peace and tranquility of the Hiran Minar park, Lahore is an eclectic, eccentric city that will draw you back time and again.
Lahore is a huge city, and the sheer number of attractions can be mind-boggling to begin with. A good place to start is the Walled City, one of the oldest in the world. Every gate around the huge walls is different and worth a visit in its own right, but the best of the ‘Gates of the Inner City’ is The Raushnai Gate (the ‘Gate of Light’) that sits between the royal mosque and the citadels.
Within the Walled City you’ll also find Lahore Fort, built by the moguls and even today still an impressive and imposing structure. If you ask the guide they may take you down for a private tour of the underground summer rooms.
The Badshahi Mosque was for many years the largest mosque in the world and today is still a dominant feature of the Lahore skyline. In front of the mosque is a pretty park with Pakistan’s very own answer to the Eiffel Tower, the Minar-e-Pakistan.
Flights to Lahore with Qatar Airways land at Allama Iqbal International Airport. Visa restrictions for entry into the country will depend on your country of origin, length of stay and whether your trip is for business or pleasure. Before you fly to Lahore please check the visa and passport requirements.
