Getting Here

Manchester Airport is located via the M56 at Junction 5. The M56 provides direct links to the M6 and the M60, ensuring ease of accessibility whether travelling from the North or South.

If travelling to the airport from local areas or Manchester city centre itself, follow signs for the A34 or A5103.

Terminals are clearly signposted on approach, while the postcode for the airport is M90 1QX if wishing to use satellite navigation. 

You can also consult our car parking maps, present on each car parking product page, as a clear indication of which car park you want to park in for your desired terminal location.

Please be aware that due to the Manchester Airport Transformation Project there are roadworks at and around the airport, and some road layouts may have changed. Please follow airport signage.

Latest traffic information

Manchester Airport Transformation Programme passenger notice - changes to Terminal 2

As part of the £1bn redevelopment of Manchester Airport we are making some changes to the facilities in and around Terminal 2 over the next couple of years. These will include some changes to where passengers drop off, pick up and park, along with some minor alterations to the road network.

From Thursday 19th October 00.01, the departures forecourt at Terminal 2 will no longer be accessible for passenger drop off. Passengers will be directed to a new departures forecourt which will be located on the ground floor of the multi-storey. Please note that the height-restriction for this drop-off facility is 2.2m. Vehicles above this height can use the over-height car park or other suitable car parking products, see website for more information.

There will be plenty of signage directing you but please leave some extra time for your journey if you are not familiar with the airport layout.

Passengers who require a disabled bay in the multi-storey car park will find them located on levels 1, 2 and 3. There is plenty of signage to help you find your way and the postcode remains M90 4ZY.

If you have any questions about this or the programme in general then please contact 0808 169 7030.
