Pilot reviews of Manchester International Airport

26 Mar 15 - Christopher Arnold - Bracknell

Visited MAN March 2014 in a PA28R. Intended to arrive IFR but due to embedded CBs opted for the VFR arrival via Macclesfield. Zone entry was very straightforward, was told to orbit once at Woodford then position for left base RW23R. Vacated runway at BD highspeed and straight towards Landmark hangar.

Used Landmark (previously Oceansky) as handling agent. Very helpful and organise PPR for runway slots. Pilot still needs to book out by phone with MAN ATC. Crew and passenger lounge available with coffee / tea and biscuits.

MAN Security Charge - £53

Departure Fee - £37 (off peak)

I used Manchester - EGCC to visit Old Trafford for the Manchester Derby game. I knew of some the handling fees but I won't be going back...

Ocean Sky is the Agent, very pleasant welcome upon arrival. Post match return to the bill, lounge occupied by jet crews :(

Compulsory basic handling £150

Landing fee £25

Parking fee £21

Out of hours fee £95 - because it was a weekend !

3% credit card fee £8.73

20% VAT £59.95

Grand total £359.68 to land, park and have the plane turned around...
