It’s always a good idea to turn up to your flight a few hours early, in order to get through all those necessary security checks and leave time for queues or traffic. This would be a bit of a painful process if it involved simply sitting waiting at the gate for a number of hours, but thankfully airports these days have got your back. Now, once you have the all clear from security, there’s the wonderful world of duty free shopping, tasty restaurants, and bars to spend your time in while you wait. Here’s a taste of what entertainment awaits you in Manchester Airport so you can plan to save some extra pennies for your return trip!
Shopping ‘til You Drop and other Amenities at Manchester Airport
With one of the biggest airports in the UK comes a great range of shopping to cater for the millions of passengers flocking through the terminals each year. Here’s a peek at some of the highlights when it comes to shopping at Manchester Airport.
Clothing and Accessories
Get your wardrobe holiday-ready with a trip to Accessorize in Manchester Airport
Whether you’ve lost something on your travels, forgot to pack properly, or just fancy spoiling yourself for the end of your holiday, Manchester Airport’s fashion shopping selection will be able to sort you out. Grab some comfy travel or beach clothes at Fat Face, or some jewellery to spice up your holiday wardrobe at Accessorize. If you’ve suddenly remembered you desperately need a new pair of shoes or a designer outfit, Lacoste, Hugo Boss, and Timberland are just some of the brands available to assist you.
Health and Beauty
It wouldn’t be airport shopping if there weren’t a sea of perfumes, moisturisers, and lipsticks to browse and add to the wish list. At Manchester Airport you’ll find all your favourite beauty brands in the World of Duty Free, as well as well-known shops like The Body Shop, Clarins, and Bobbi Brown. If it’s something slightly less indulgent you’re looking for, you’ll find all your over-the-counter medicines, toiletry essentials, and even snacks in Boots.
Forgotten to grab a gift for your friend or family member on holiday? We’ve all been there. Not to worry, with the range of shops available at Manchester Airport they’ll never know it was a last-minute purchase. Treat them to a classic bracelet or charm from Pandora, a delightfully smelling candle from Jo Malone, or even a book by their favourite author from WH Smith.
If you’ve travelled to an overseas airport before, you’ll know how useful it is to have a Wi-Fi connection. When you first touch down in your holiday destination, it can be a huge help in organising your next move, contacting friends to let them know where you are, and catching up with family after a long flight. And once you’re sitting waiting for your return flight, Wi-Fi can be a lifesaver if you want to pass the time watching movies or surfing the internet. Whatever you want to use it for, you’ll be pleased to know that Manchester Airport offers free Wi-Fi for 60 minutes in any 24 hour period. If you need more, it’s easily accessible for purchase through your mobile phone or computer.
