Flights from Manchester to Basel take just an hour and three quarters. Extremely low fares can be found by booking early enough, which should also negate the need for a connecting flight. Should a stopover be required to fly from Manchester to Basel on your preferred dates, a major European city such as Amsterdam, Brussels or Frankfurt will be the likely destination. EuroAirport Basel Mulhouse Freiburg, to use its proper title, is located in the heart of Western Europe. It lies on the French-Swiss border, only a couple of miles northwest of Basel itself, while Mulhouse in France is just 12 miles away, and Freiburg is less than 30 miles northeast. As one of the world’s few international airports that’s jointly operated by two countries, the airport lies principally in France, although there is a 1.6 mile customs road that leads to a Swiss customs area, connected to Basel. The Line 50 bus route to Basel’s main railway station Bahnhof SBB takes around 20 minutes, stopping at Kannenfeldplatz and Frachthalle en route. There’s no direct rail service into the centre of Basel, but from the train station, tram line no. 2 heads into the downtown area and continues on to the Badischer Bahnhof, which is Basel’s German railway station. Taking a taxi to the city centre should cost in the region of 30 pounds, with companies such as Airport Taxi, Taxi am EuroAirport and Taxi-Zentrale AG Basel all providing services. Car hire firms Avis, Budget, Europcar, Thrifty and Sixt all operate from Basel airport.
