Metrolink


New Metrolink Manchester Airport Line
The new Metrolink line to Wythenshawe and Manchester Airport will launch before the year is out – more than 12 months ahead of schedule. 

Services will initially run between Manchester Airport and Cornbrook, every 12 minutes, and will start to run through the city centre once the Second City Crossing is complete in 2017.

Find out more about the new Airport Line, including public consultation dates and progress updates.

Current Services
The Metrolink currently runs on six lines out from the city centre towards:

  • Altrincham
  • Bury
  • Droylesden
  • East Didsbury
  • Eccles
  • Rochdale

Airport passengers can connect to the Metrolink via rail services between the airport and Manchester Piccadilly and with Arriva bus services 18 and 18A to Altrincham.
