The delay that you refer to would appear to have been fairly in the ballpark of the airline's handling agent. Both the airport and the handling agents (who are responsible fofr the ground handling of aircraft and psssengers), are suffering from major staff shortages and, due to security requirements, it is not possible to recruit new staff and have them operational at the click of a finger.

Whilst I appreciate your frustration at having to pay additional car park charges can you please think carefully before pressing the "Submit" key on your device.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope that you understand where I am coming from.
If only there was a like button on this site. Well done!

Got an early morning T1 departure this coming Tuesday (first flight for 3 years )

The MAN web site shows estimated waiting times at security.
Any chance of a pointer to this info - can't find it sorry to say....

Just go to the airport's home page - www.manchesterairport.co.uk - and you'll see the times towards the top of the screen, just under the 'content'
Hope that helps.

My turn for a question!

​A quick question for anybody who may be able to help. ​I've noticed whilst doing my daily logs that there have been no T3 flights since Saturday 21st May. Have they suspended the SOU route?

Can anyone confirm if airside connections between T2 and T1/3 still requires a bus transfer? Has the process changed at all since the new T2 re-opened or is it still the same with bus and the Flight Transfer Centre?

IAH-MAN (SQ) and onto ABZ (LM codeshare). Thank you!

Bus transfers were paused during lockdown and are yet to resume. So no transfer facility as it stands.

So how many cars could you fit there? Enough to accommodate the entire passenger load of a delayed 737/320 or just a handful?

Simple when passengers have cleared passport control get them to call you then drive upto the pick up area it will still take the passenger 5 minutes to get there in that time you have plenty of time to drive last bit, does it matter if the passenger or driver has to wait two minutes either way
If you don't want to pay simple there's plenty of places to park stranger or no stranger to the area if you travelling by car easy to pull off the motorway one junction before and park nearby all other roads to the airport have plenty of places that you can park no double yellow lines and all within 5 drive
I've seen this in the US. Cars lining up on the hard shoulder before the airport junction. Dozens of them. The police turn up and move them on. The same would happen if random cars started parking down every back street and bus stop around Styal or Hale Barns. It is not a realistic solution.

Wasn't advocating that as I'm sure most people knew
was a suggestion (and I have no affiliation with the pub!)

I've not. Almost every US airport I've been to has had a "cell lot" where you park up for free and await a call to collect. When you get the call you you leave the lot and go and pick up the pax. For free. Works great.

Where would you suggest near Manchester airport that has a vacant lot that would not require any revenue?

I totally agree the drop off fee £5 for 5 mins and £6 for 10 is horrendous..though I believe a free drop off at Jet1 park

Philadelphia Airport like most major US airports is publically owned and so ironically in the home of capitalism isn't quite so nakedly corportate.
Manchester Airport on the othe hand is ....oh hang on a mo.....<leaves converstation>
