For holidaymakers in the North West of England planning a trip away this Easter, the award-winning airport parking operator and retailer Airport Parking & Hotels (APH) has created a helpful guide to Manchester Airport to ensure savvy travellers are well-informed prior to their trip. Find it here:

Manchester Airport is the UK’s third busiest but there’s so much more to do there than you’d expect. Travellers looking for entertainment may be pleasantly surprised to learn that one hour of free WiFi is provided throughout the airport terminals and families can also make the most of the airport’s play area (in Terminal 2 next to Gate 213), which includes a dedicated space for those under three-years-old. The airport also boasts a wide range of eateries to suit all tastes, including Starbucks at Terminal 1, Frankie & Benny’s at Terminal 2 and Trattoria Milona at Terminal 3, and the APH Guide shares a full list of the best restaurants, which terminal they are in, and whether they’re located before or after security.

For a supersonic day out prior to an afternoon flight, Manchester Airport is also home to the Runway Visitor Park, which is located on Wilmslow Road and just minutes away from the main terminal areas of the airport. Positioned right at the end of the runway, the aeronautic education centre provides visitors with hangar and cockpit tours plus a front row seat to marvel at planes speeding down the runway and taking off. Families and aviation fans can also enjoy guided tours of the five retired aircraft on site, including British Airway’s flagship Concorde. More on this can be found in the APH Guide.

APH offers a wide range of services across all three terminals at Manchester Airport, including both on and off-airport parking and hotels, airport lounge access, and airport hotel and parking packages. Several pre-bookable parking options are available at Manchester Airport, including the APH-owned and operated Car Park, which is located just 10 minutes away from the airport’s terminals. After arriving at the car park, travellers board the complimentary transfer bus, which runs every 15 minutes, 24 hours a day. According to recent verified customer reviews*, staff at the site are helpful, efficient and have even assisted with a flat car battery in the past. To ensure peace of mind while away, the barrier-controlled site also includes complete CCTV coverage and has been granted a Park Mark Safer Parking Award, which is a police-approved accolade presented to car parks that have measures in place to ensure the safety of people and vehicles.

Nick Caunter, Managing Director of Airport Parking and Hotels said: “With nearly four decades of parking industry experience, APH knows Manchester Airport well and so we thought we’d share our insider knowledge of one of Britain’s best-loved airports, with travellers likely to use the airport, but unlikely to know how much it has to offer.

“APH is proud to offer holidaymakers in the North West a wide range of award-winning airport parking, hotel and lounge options at all three of Manchester Airport’s terminals. The APH Car Park itself provides a friendly and professional service and it’s clear to see from the thousands of independent and genuine customer reviews we receive that residents of the North West agree!”
