    Free access with your Diners Club card to escape and servisair lounges at Terminal 1. I checked out ESCAPE and it was okay. Free WIDI, Cookies and paninis are also free. Watch out - some food is for £

    Allow proper time to check in T3 and to go through security. It's all very proper & tight compared to HK. This terminal is small & very busy especially AM times with high traffic.

    Try getting your currency from the Travelex, usually really good rates- surprising for an airport. You can also reserve via the internet in advance.

    For a major UK airport there's a striking dearth of quality food/drink options to help pass a long connection. Easily reachable from Manchester city center via metrolink (tram) or regional rail.

    The man who works in security at the flight transfer made me never want to visit this country again. Made life unnecessarily difficult for every person who passed through.

    There are both free (with time limit) and paid wifi available. There are trains and buses (coaches) available to take you pretty much anywhere, so you don't have to pay much for taxis.

    Visit Runway Park & Viewing Area (free admission). Take bus 200 from Airport Bus terminal. It goes hourly on 16th minute, takes 8 minutes and costs £2,5 for return ticket.

    Very good airport in all, well designed. Arrive super early though. Queues can get enormous by 8.15am for my usual US Airways check in

    Get your Boots meal deal for £3.79 (one main, one snack, one drink) before boarding. Much better than airplane food!

    Use the valet parking option. More than off site but much cheaper than the on airport long stay and great service. Car waiting upon your return.

    Changed the entrance to t1 multi storey . Drive through the drop off and turn right at the end (up ramp). Round the corner are the barriers.

    When passing by Olympic House make sure to find and pet Olly, a super sweet, and apparently quite famous, orange and white cat. Love her!

    Welcome to Manchester! Head to the railway station for frequent trains to the city centre as well as other destinations around the north of England.

    Great airport, quick security and good transport links. Costa in terminal 3 is a good place to stop for a drink.

    The airport was hard to get though due to it being that big. It is apparently the 6th biggest airport in the world and second biggest in the uk outside of heathrow the world biggest airport

    Best value food is the Boots meal deal. A triple chicken sandwich, blueberry/pistachio yoghourt bar and Green Machine Naked drink, all for £

    Want to get to city centre? Take the 24-hour bus service 43 leaving every 10 min by day and every 30 by night. It is the only route in Greater Manchester to operate on Christmas Day.

    Such a rubbish airport. Do not go early. There is nowhere to sit. Having just flown in from Hong Kong (a beautiful airport much like Singapore) it's such a scummy aiport. Come on uk sort yourself out.

    Get here early. Even getting there 2 hours in advance doesn't guarantee you won't be running for your plane anymore!

    The most greedy airport. Beware: Trolleys take coins but you won't get them back. You have to pay stg1 for Plastic bags for Liquids do when you're in London stock up on them if you use them.

    There are plug sockets in T1 next to the seats in the corridor to the toilets. Usually not as crowded as the rest of the terminal

    Pre-pay for your taxi with Airport Taxis outside arrivals as it's a set fare & loads cheaper than a Hackney cab!

    The new capital has a fine landing port, and is able to host some of the largest aether ships in the world. Her Majesty has her own terminal.

    Grim, unkempt and dated. Add insult to injury, no trains to Liverpool after 22:30 on Sunday night so plan ahead!
  • Lisa S.
    I like the shops here. Looking for a nice pair of sunglasses from Ray Ban or make up articles from Mac or Bobbi Brown? You can have it all here!

    Smoking area is on level 2. Just take the escalator and follow the sing. Btw: It's an outside area - take you coat with you.

    Security can be a right pain, particularly at terminal 1. Give yourself plenty of time. On the other hand, terminal 3 is usually problem free. The scanners seem to be hyper sensitive though.

    The most insane security on the planet. Allow an extra 30 min for them to hand inspect everything

    Arrive at least 2,5 hours before your flight during holiday seasons at T1. You don't want to miss your flight

    Haphazard airport. Confusing and always crowded. Restaurants always fill to the brim at departure lounges.
