Prayer Facilities

Amidst the bustle of arrivals and departures, Manchester Airport has provided its travelers with two multi-faith prayer rooms. Open 24 hours a day, they are available in Terminal 2 and Terminal 3. Wudu facilities are available before and after security for the prayer rooms in both terminals.

A prayer room is also available in the Etihad Lounge, which is located in the Departures Area of Terminal 1. This lounge is only available to Etihad passenger card holders and the prayer rooms may not be available to the public.

Jumuah prayers are conducted in the Terminal 3 prayer room.

Manchester Airport provided many additional facilities to Muslims performing Hajj this past year. Members of the airports chaplaincy team set up temporary facilities for travelers to change into their religious garments and added an extra dedicated prayer area. A supply of extra ihrams was available for those who needed it. They also took extra care in providing additional comforts during the check-in process so that it took minimal time for those travelling on Hajj to get settled. These additional facilities during Hajj are not guaranteed annually and they may alter according to the various associations involved.

Halal Food

SPAR (Terminal 2), Broderick's (T2 transit) and AM Express (T2 Arrivals) offer Halal food options. 


 There are many modes of transportation to and from Manchester Airport taxis, car rentals, chauffeur-driven vehicles, and public transportation being among them. There are car rental operators available in each terminal but the hours of operation may vary so it is best to check at an information desk before proceeding. These operators offer self-driven and chauffeur-driven vehicles.

Taxis from an independent airport taxi service can found at the exit of each terminal. A meter is available in the taxi so prices are displayed to the customers. Drivers are not required to use the meter on journeys outside of Manchester and prices can be negotiated with them accordingly.

Bus services to and from Manchester Airport run 24 hours a day and includes a network of local and regional buses. Bus stops can be found in all terminal exits. If you plan on traveling to another city from the airport, coach travel might be a better option: linking Manchester Airport with other major UK cities, coach travel is cost-effective while offering comfortable seats and onboard washroom facilities.

Trains are another great way of traveling to the heart of Manchester - up to 9 trains depart each hour to the Manchester Piccadilly Station in the city center. Look for signs directing you to ƒ??The Station' to catch the train.

If you're departing from Manchester Airport with plans to return, a short-term and long-term car park is available. Prices vary depending on the length of your stay no money is necessary initially and payment can be made upon your arrival back. 


Business travelers will be glad to know that there is free WiFi available in all of the terminals. For a fee, travelers can also utilize the airport's Escape Lounge, which offers state-of-the-art conference facilities.  

There are dedicated play areas in terminals 1 and 2 of the Manchester Airport. These areas have been built with a lot of thought and many of the activities found there are designed to develop motor skills in children. The play area in terminal 1 can be found in the Departures Lounge and is suitable for toddlers aged 3 and under. The play area in terminal 2 has a section for toddlers 3 and under as well as another area for slightly older children. This play area is located in the Departures Lounge as well.

If you're transiting through Manchester Airport and would like to freshen up, shower and change, facilities are available for a small fee. The Radisson SAS Hotel is located in Terminal 2 and offers shower facilities and changing rooms for a modest fee. They're open from Monday to Friday at 6 a.m. and from 8 a.m. on weekends
