easyjet flights from manchester

by mindcrime

my flight is with EASYJET from Manchester.

1)which airport does Easyjet use? is it in the city or very far (like in Barcelona where it is actually in another city?)

2)how do I reach the airport from the city? Are there any shuttle buses or other cheap options? the problem is that I have to be there at 5.15am Is taxi the only option and how much does it cost?

easyjet are using Manchester International Airport (MAN.

You can get information on getting to/from the airport here:

Sounds advice above. The number 43 bus runs 24 hours a day and that is the only way other than a taxi to get to the airport for 5.15am. The fist train does not arrive until 05.57.

includes a route map, so you see where the bus goes in relation from where you are starting from.

Re: easyjet flights from manchester

EasyJet use the only airport in Manchester, which is Manchester International Airport (part of the MAG group) which is sighted to the south of the city centre.

There are no shuttle buses as such but there are bookable shuttle services along the lines of a multi-occupant taxi minibus. I can't remember the name (and a Google search doesn't help) but they were barely cheaper than a taxi when I investigated them as I almost always fly out of Manchester being I live in the city. Of course, it all depends on where you want to travel FROM to get to the airport.

If you're heading from the city centre, then you need to take a train from Manchester Picadilly. Train services can be checked out at www.nationalrail.co.uk - dependent upon the day you need to travel will depend on service availability. However, the previous poster is incorrect as I have just undertaken a search on that site and found a train departing on Wednesday, 25 November at 03:55 and arriving at the Airport at 04:20. The train journey can take between 25 and 40 minutes, dependent upon routing through stations (i.e. express or not). The fare for that particular train is £3.80 with a couple of earlier options (and VERY much earlier) costing £3.20. There is also a 04:25 train which arrives at 04:50 and costs £3.80.

The number 43 bus service also operates between the city centre and the Airport, as do a couple of other services (105 being one of them). Information for these can be found at www.gmpte.gov.uk and use the journey planning link.

If you are looking to use a taxi, I would suggest Radio Cars (0161 236 8033) or Cresta Cars (0161 795 8080) who both have locations in the city and reliable services). I'm not sure how much a private hire taxi from the city centre will be but I pay a flat fee of £18 from north-east of the city centre - from the city should be cheaper but be sure to ask for the flat fare (its cheaper than the meter). If you use a Black Cab (the only flag-able taxi on the street), then it will cost you a lot more than this.

Hope this all helps. Feel free to drop an e-mail if I can be helpful with anything else.

Travel Tips for Manchester

Trafford Centre: Souless hell

by didsbury_ryder

I don't know why this place gets good reviews. It's just a massive shopping centre, built in shockingly bad mock-classical style.

If you like walking round a greenhouse giving your money to boring multinational retail chains, then this is the place for you.

Otherwise, Manchester city centre is SO much better, both for character, and interesting shops and places to go.

Give the TC a big miss.

Great Shopping

by steventilly

Manchester is a great shopping destination. The city centre has every "high street" store you can think of, as well as some very swish stores such as Kendals, Selfridges, Harvey Nicols and a huge branch of Marks & Spencer.
"The Traingle" is a new mall built into and old and characterful building. The shops inside are all of the "designer" variety.

Bring suncream

by Charlie_UK

Bags with no holes in are usually best. Wear clothes. They don't like you going naked here. All chemists and shops are fully equipped with everything you'll need. It is essential when visiting Manchester that you have film in your camera should you want to take pictures. Rumours that the city is enchanted and pictures come out of your camera by magic with no film in are untrue. Being 35 miles inland, and a port only due to the Ship Canal, there is no beach here. Uniteds' groundstaff have done their best over the years to create one. Sun cream - If you come over not expecting anything but rain you may get caught out. Do not panic - chemists sell it.

Stoke on Trent

by Toyin

In case of the unexpected, you should look out for the shop, where you could pick up provisions and skacks to refresh while waiting for your connecting train. I did not have the opportunity to explore the town which is very visible from the train station. But from distance, it looks great, and hopefully, I will do this city in future.

THE Shopping District

by gabriellefox about Arndale Centre

Located in the heart of the city, Manchester's Arndale Centre in many ways dominates the central shopping area of the City. Begun in 1972, by its completion in 1979 it was the largest covered town shopping centre in Europe, covering some 30 acres in the old city centre, with 750,000 shoppers visiting it each week. With over 200 shops, major department stores, restaurants an fast food outlets it has become a busy and active shopping arcade. The centre houses an 1800 space multi-storey car park, shopping malls on two levels, office space in tower, residential flats, and the Arndale Centre Bus Station at Cannon Street,
