The Metrolink now stops right at the airport
It couldn’t be easier to use the Metrolink tram service to travel to and from the airport, as it stops right in The Station at the airport itself. It is then just a 5 - 15 minute walk to get to and from the terminals, depending on which one you’re visiting, with moving walkways throughout.
With over 90 stops, the Metrolink connects all parts of Manchester, no matter where you’re heading. Trams run direct from the airport to just outside the city, where you can change for a short tram ride to the centre. Alternatively, there are frequent connections to the rest of the network, with trams heading towards Altrincham, Bury, Ashton-under-Lyne, East Didsbury, Eccles and Rochdale.
Why struggle with your luggage on the tram when we can get it to your plane for you? In partnership with AirPortr, Manchester Airport can come to your house and collect your bags at a time that suits you, check them in and seal them in front of you, and then take them to your plane so you can travel light to the airport.Find out more
