Low Cost Manchester Airport Parking

Manchester Airport offers the highest quality airport parking facilities for any passengers’ requirements and budget.  This is a major international airport, situated 14 km from central Manchester, and handles over eighteen million passengers per year.  Although ‘The Station’, Manchester Airport’s ground transportation hub, offers bus, coach and train transportation to and from virtually any destination in Northern England, many passengers arrive at the airport in their own vehicle.  Therefore, Manchester Airport has ensured that their parking facilities are top-class and more than adequate to sustain the number of vehicles which need a place to park. 

Manchester Airport consists of three terminal buildings, named Terminal 1,2 and 3, and these terminals all handle international and domestic arrivals and departures.  The terminal you will be using depends on your airline company.  All the terminals have their own short-stay multi-storey car parks within easy walking distance of the check-in desks, and a shared long-stay car park for Terminal 1 and Terminal 3 is available.  Terminal 2 has its own dedicated long-stay car park.  Parking for the longer term can also be found in various other car parks, a bit further away from the airport, but at a cheaper parking rate than the more popular areas.  Valet Parking and Meet and Greet services are offered for each terminal building.  Passengers may be dropped off free of charge at any of the terminals in the departure zones, but due to security reasons, Manchester Airport does not allow any vehicle to pick up passengers in a free waiting zone.  All pick-ups must take place in the short-stay car parks, and there is charge of £2.00 for half an hour of parking.  Terminal 1’s short-stay car park has recently been renovated, and each level is now color coded.  Each parking space has also been equipped with a sensor and green light, which indicates the available parking spaces.
