Manchester Airport's Aviation Viewing Park gains new shuttle service

Thu, 16 Apr, 2009

Visitors to Manchester Airport's Aviation Viewing Park will now be able to take advantage of a new shuttle service.

BusyBus' vehicles will run three times an hour from 07:30 to 18:00 BST every day from the aviation hub's transport centre – which includes airport parking and a train station.

Tickets for the services cost between £1 and £1.50 depending on the age of the passenger, with a discount for airport staff.

The airport's ground transport manager Bob Longworth has commented that the new service could mean even more people could visit the "popular attractions".

"We're really proud of the new centre, with it only being opened in February of this year [and] I want to ensure that as many people as possible have access to see the history of aviation at Manchester Airport," he said.

British Airway's former flagship aircraft G-BOAC, nicknamed Alpha Charlie, is the only Concorde on display worldwide and has a fully accessible flight deck which visitors can inspect.

People using satnavs to drive to Manchester Airport may be interested in the post codes for Terminals 1, 2 and 3, which are M90 3PY, M90 4ZY and M90 3NZ respectively.
