Manchester Airport is well served by a network of local and regional buses running daily from early morning to late night, including weekends and bank holidays. There is now a 24 hour bus service operating to/from Manchester Airport local bus network.


Metrolink is Greater Manchester’s tram system and connects passengers with destinations right across the city. To catch a flight from the airport, or if you are visiting for any other reason, it couldn’t be any easier to use Metrolink as the stop is right inside the airport itself- adjacent to the rail platform. For arrivals, whatever your final destination you should be able to access it from one of the 92 stops.
