The busiest British airport outside of London, Manchester Airport (MAN) sees some 20 million passengers travel through its terminals each year. It’s a major gateway for passengers from the northwest and beyond thanks to excellent motorway links and a range of transportation options from both Manchester city centre (just a few miles away) and further afield.
The Station is the airport’s dedicated transport hub, with trains, buses and coaches arriving and departing frequently and allowing passengers direct access to the airport.
Plentiful parking makes arriving by car a doddle. Book online in advance to secure a discount on drive-up rates.
Each of Manchester Airport’s three terminals is well equipped with cafes, bars, restaurants and shops, plus places to worship. Families with children who are travelling out of Terminal 2 can spend time in the airport’s soft play area (located by Gate 213). If you have a child in a pushchair, you can also use a security fast lane at no extra charge.
If your flights from Manchester to Dubai mark a special occasion, or you simply want to unwind in style before take-off, book some time in one of the airport’s executive lounges. There’s an Escape Lounge in each terminal.
Which terminal do flights to Dubai usually fly from?
Direct Emirates flights from Dubai to Manchester depart from Terminal 1. If you are flying indirect, use the airport’s website to check which terminal you need for your chosen airline.
There are plenty of onward travel options from Dubai International Airport (DXB).
Private hotel transfers are widely available, so check with your accommodation if they can pick you up. If not, you can travel door to door in a taxi. There are official ranks outside of the arrivals terminal.
If you don’t mind carrying your luggage on public transport, hop aboard the Dubai Metro or use a local bus. To do this, you will need a Nol Card – a pass that can be used on all forms of public transport.
Car hire is good value; book online before you go and collect at the airport. For more information, visit our Dubai car hire page.
Beach days, designer shopping, luxury hotels, buzzing nightlife – Dubai really is the ultra-modern, uber-hip and extravagant destination you have probably come to expect. It’s all seasoned with Middle Eastern spice, of course, adding traditional charm to this city of over-the-top opulence.
Dubai’s sizzling Persian Gulf coastline is as extraordinary as its people and its buildings. Long stretches of honeyed sands, often backed by sky-reaching towers, break and give way to manmade palm-shaped islands, or seven-star hotels in the form of a giant sail – the sort of ambitious projects that not only put Dubai on the map, but changed the shape of the map forever.
Sumptuous, expensive hotels line the beaches, reminding visitors that Dubai is a playground for the rich and famous. But while it’s not exactly a budget destination, you can make big savings on your sunshine break if you plan well in advance and look for hotel deals in Dubai.
Dubai is also an excellent choice for family holidays; many hotels are child-friendly and there is plenty for young ones to see and do at the Wild Wadi Water Park, Ski Dubai, and the Dubai Mall.
Other top attractions in Dubai include the famous souks, boat trips on Dubai Creek, and visits to the Jumeirah Mosque, Al Fahidi Fort and Burj Khalifa – the world’s tallest skyscraper..
