Airspace & Operations

The airspace immediately above/around the site is controlled from Manchester Airport.

As aircraft pass above or away from this airspace they are controlled from the Prestwick Air Traffic Control Centre in Scotland.

Aircraft related to other aerodromes are able to obtain permission to pass through our airspace en route to their destination. Such movements are co-ordinated from the Manchester Airport Tower, for safety, but are not Manchester movements.
