MAN - Manchester (England)

Post by Ryanairflyer on Wed 22 Jul 2009 - 12:07

Manchester Airport (IATA: MAN, ICAO: EGCC) is a major airport in Manchester, England. Opening to passenger traffic in June 1938, it was initially known as Ringway Airport. During World War II it officially became RAF Ringway, and from 1975 until 1986 the title Manchester International Airport was used. The airport complex is almost entirely located within the city of Manchester boundaries with the sole exception of the second runway, which mostly lies in neighbouring Cheshire, 8 miles (13 km) south by west from the city centre.

The airport is owned by the ten local authorities of Greater Manchester under the name Manchester Airports Group (MAG) which is controlled by the ten metropolitan borough councils and is the largest British-owned airport group. Each of these councils have their coat of arms displayed on banners hung from the lamp posts approaching the airport. The airport has won numerous awards including World's Best Airport 1995 and Travel Weekly Globe Awards' UK Best Airport 2008.

The airport has two parallel runways, three terminals, a railway station and bus interchange. Manchester Airport has a CAA Public Use Aerodrome Licence (Number P712) that allows flights for the public transport of passengers and for flying instruction. In 2007, Manchester Airport handled 22,112,625 passengers with 222,703 aircraft movements, making it the fourth busiest airport in the United Kingdom in passenger numbers and third in terms of total aircraft movements.

My first flight to MAN T3 with Ryanair yesterday !

Arriving at T3 :





Arrivals :





T3 :





The easiest way to downtown is by train - you have to walk to the station, first by following the pavement (roofed) :





It's a ten-minute walk !



Transiting by T1 :





Take the lift to Level 7 :



Level 7 :





The "Skylink walkway" :






Downstairs to the railway station :





Buying a train ticket is here :





And the trains are here, at last :



Another way to Manchester downtown is by National Express coach, now bookable (2013) on the RYR website : less expensive than the train and about the same transit time - the bus station is on the side of the railway station :





National Express coaches stop at platform A, B or C

There is an interesting "Aviation viewing park" at Manchester airport.
Access by bus n°200 - departure at the airport bus station (next to the train station, near T2) - an 8-10 minutes ride - a return ticket costs 2,60 GBP.
On site :
- Trident - Nimrod - cockpit only of a DC10 - Concorde - Avro RJX
- three viewing points on the runways and taxiways, a spotter's dream come true !
- a small aviation shop
Entry is free - but not all aircraft can be visited every day.
