Reliable and friendly Manchester Airport transfers

After a long flight, there’s no better feeling than hopping into a private car or taxi and making your way comfortably into the city centre or to your hotel. That’s why we recommend taking a reliable and friendly Manchester Airport taxi upon your arrival and securing a convenient, door-to-door transfer.

As soon as you land at Manchester Airport (MAN), your friendly driver will be waiting for you just outside of the arrivals hall holding a sign with your name on it. After greeting you, your driver will lend a hand with any heavy luggage and lead you to your pre-selected, private car. If you experience any delays or travel changes, don’t worry. All of our drivers receive live updates on your flight’s arrival time, so your driver will always be waiting when you land. 

While you enjoy your Manchester Airport transfer, your Welcome Pickups driver will answer any questions about the city and share a few local must-see spots to help you make the most of your trip. With all your transfer needs taken care of all you need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. 

You can still book a ride with Welcome Pickups within the city, use an app or hail a Manchester taxi from the street or at an official taxi rank.

Directions for your taxi from Manchester Airport

Manchester Airport (MAN) is the third busiest airport in the United Kingdom, serving over 199 destinations worldwide. The airport is located 14.5 km away from Manchester city centre, so taking a Manchester Airport taxi shouldn’t take longer than 20 minutes in light traffic. 

To begin your journey, your driver will get on Airport Spur/A555 and head south. Then, at the roundabout, they will take the 3rd exit to the M60. You will then follow signs for Manchester/Stockport/M60/Sheffield/M67/M56/Leeds/M62/Bolton/M61 before merging onto the M56. After turning right onto Pkwy/A5103, your driver will then take a left onto Princess Rd/A5103. After about 1 mile, your driver will take the second exit at the roundabout onto Ring Rd/A57(M)/A635 ramp to Ashton-under-Lyne/Sheffield/Piccadilly. After following the signs for the A6, your driver will make their way into the city centre of Manchester. 

Finding a good place to stay in the city centre can be challenging, so we checked the top traveller-ranked hotels in Manchester’s city centre to make things a little easier. Try Stock Exchange Hotel for a little luxury and Wilde Aparthotels By Staycity for a budget-friendly option.

If you’re travelling outside of Manchester, Welcome frequently operates several routes from Manchester Airport to other popular cities including Leeds, Sheffield, and Liverpool.

How much is a Manchester Airport taxi?

Unfortunately, the local taxis you will find at the ranks outside the airport don’t offer set-rate fees for the journey from Manchester Airport to the city centre. Instead, your Manchester Airport taxi driver will charge you depending on the time of day you leave the airport and the size of vehicle you need. However, the average price is around £44 (€52). To secure a set rate for your journey, you can book your transfer in advance with a trusted company like Welcome.
