However you’re travelling to the airport, allow plenty of time to get here in case there are any delays on your route. If you’ll be arriving by car, please be aware that there are currently roadworks at and around the airport, and some road layouts may have changed. You may need to allow extra time for your journey.
Always follow your airline’s guidance on how to check in for your flight and how early you need to be at the airport.
As a general guide, you will need to have checked in and be ready to go through security at least 2 hours before your flight departure time.
At Manchester Airport, we make the safety and security of customers and staff our absolute priority. To make your journey as smooth as possible and avoid unnecessary delays, we ask that you pay special attention to our security procedure.
