    30 Apr 12: Car parking charges abolished

    Nick Duriez - Manchrster

    We are pleased to announce that with effect from 1st May 2012, daily car park charges at City Airport will be removed.

    The income generated by the additional car parking spaces which accommodate supporters of the nearby Salford City Stadium has allowed us to remove all our regular car park fees, as promised in our recent Customer Survey Action Plan. Please note that on match days free parking spaces will be reserved for regular users of the airfield (ie students, pilot's, landing card holders and customers of the Flying Schools etc)

    Fantastic friendly airport with great facilities and helpful staff.

    Having learnt to fly at Liverpool, I underwent differences training at City Airport Manchester and now have a non equity share in a Warrior 2 based there.

    Very family orientated with a play area for young kids. Very welcoming tower and helpful staff and you'll notice the top notch ATC service from PPR to shut down.

    When the fire service see the kids, they always make a fuss of them and my two lads know most of the staff by name.

    Good home cooked food and ample parking.

    Stunning airport and a must if you haven't already been.
