Manchester T3 Escape Lounge

Escape from the hustle and bustle of the airport terminal and enjoy the calming atmosphere of our Escape Lounge. Whether travelling for business or pleasure, there’s simply no better way to get your journey off to a flying start.


Escape Lounge offers the perfect environment to unwind before you fly. Take some time out with that book you’ve been meaning to finish, catch up on the news with our range of complimentary newspapers and magazines, or simply sit back, relax and enjoy our calming, tranquil space whilst taking in the fantastic runway views.

Food & Drink

Designed exclusively for Escape Lounges, our complimentary buffet is prepared using only the very best locally sourced ingredients.

Join us for a continental breakfast and choose from a delicious selection of cereals, fresh fruit, warm croissants and freshly prepared breakfast rolls. Our brunch and afternoon menu consists of freshly baked pies, pastries, grazing boards, salads and handmade sandwiches served alongside our soup of the day, and for those with a sweet tooth, a choice of cakes and biscuits are available. An upgrade menu is also available, providing a wider range of hot meal options to purchase.

Our complimentary bar is well stocked with an assortment of alcoholic drinks such as prosecco, wines, beer and spirits, alongside tea, coffee, soft drinks and fresh fruit juices. Premium drinks are available to purchase for that special occasion. 

New menu coming soon.


We understand that when you’re flying on business, every second counts. At Escape, you’ll find unlimited complimentary Wi-Fi, work spaces and charging points for all your devices.
