Practical Information

There are printers in the check-in area of Manchester Airport, so there’s no need to panic if you forget to print your boarding pass. If you have a smartphone you can store your boarding card electronically on your phone so you don’t need to worry about paper at all.

We recommend giving yourself plenty of time at the airport, so try not to arrive any later than one hour before your flight is due to depart. Queues at security are longer at weekends and during school holidays, so it’s worth giving yourself some extra time.
