Manchester Airport is 9 miles south of Manchester city centre, next to the M56 and with easy links to the M6, M60 and M62.

The postcode for the airport is M90 1QX. It helps to know which terminal you’re flying from, so you can follow the signposts when you approach the airport.

Parking at the airport

There are a number of official airport parking options available, with prices to suit all budgets. To guarantee your space you can pre-book your preferred car park online, in a few simple steps.

Picking up and dropping off

If you’re dropping someone off at the airport, you can do so for free at our free drop off point. The free drop off point is on Thorley Lane, next to the JetParks 1 car park and clearly signposted from the M56. From here, passengers will be able to take a free and frequent shuttle bus to their terminal.

If you want to drop passengers off directly outside their terminal or at the Station, a charge will apply. The fee for this is £3 for five minutes and £4 for 10 minutes. Special arrangements apply for Blue Badge holders, local residents and Private Hire operators.

If you’re picking someone up from the airport, please park in the Arrivals car park (for Terminal 1 and Terminal 3) or in the Multi-Storey car park (all terminals).
