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.
