Flights departing from Manchester
Manchester is the first city in the world to get industrialised, during the Industrial Revolution, and it is known for its architecture, scientific output and culture. The city is served by Manchester Airport, which is 14km away from the city centre. This airport has three terminals and is spread over an area of 1,400 acres.
Flights from Manchester to Madrid take off from Manchester Airport often. The city has a capacity for almost 50 million passengers yearly. However, the airport can handle only 61 aircrafts per hour and thus, it handles only half of its capacity for passengers. The airport is located in the Ringway area of Manchester.

To catch one of those Manchester Madrid flights, make sure that you start early to avoid unnecessary traffic jams and delays. To reach quickly, head straight towards Manchester Piccadilly Station and hop on a TransPennine Express to the airport. You will directly reach Manchester Airport railway station. You can also get on the metro at Cornbrook Station. If you prefer to travel by bus and admire the city's architecture along the way, hop on bus 43, which can easily be found at Manchester city centre. There are also taxis and cabs available throughout the city, but they can be quite pricey.
