Manchester Airport (MAN) is the UK’s third-largest airport, located just nine miles south-west of the city’s centre.

From here, a whole host of award-winning airlines, including BA, Virgin Atlantic, Delta, Singapore Airlines and Emirates, fly to around 200 incredible destinations spanning the entire globe, making it a great departure or arrival point in the UK. And with an average of 377 flights departing around the clock daily, you’ll have endless options when it comes to fitting your travel plans conveniently into your schedule.

Whether you’re jetting off to the Middle East to visit Dubai or staying a little closer to the UK and heading to the charming city of Dublin, one thing’s almost certain, you’ll probably be able to fly there from Manchester. How about a multi-city tour of Prague, Budapest and Vienna? Or perhaps spending your Christmas at Chateau de Montvillargenne is more your cup of tea? If that doesn’t send your wanderlust surging, why not head to Kenya in search of the Big Five?

No matter your preference, Manchester Airport is your gateway to a holiday of a lifetime.
