Hello

A bit earlier then the usual A.net meet end of June I know. But a few trip reporters and I decided to join for a meeting in Manchester. From April 5 to April 8.

- Numourus interesting combinations to get to and from MAN.
- Viewing park with interesting traffic, including the Emirates A380 that taxies nearby.
- Concorde exhibition centre with guided tour (maybe a group tour could be interesting).
- For the thirsty and hungry ones under us. Plenty of pubs and resto's at the viewing park, airport and in Manchester city which is not to far away!


How more to join, how more fun!


+ Incase we have enough participants, maybe a group discount tour on the concorde!!

Cheapest option (and nice schedule both ways) would be FR from CRL. BMI Regional had decent fares from ANR when I looked for flights earlier this month (around 98€ return all in.) but you would have to fly on friday as they don't fly ANR-MAN on saturday. You can also fly EasyJet to LPL and take a train to MAN, never experienced it myself but I'm sure other members will be able to tell you more about this...

You can also fly EasyJet to LPL and take a train to MAN, never experienced it myself but I'm sure other members will be able to tell you more about this...

It first is a bus ride from LPL to nearby Liverpool South Parkway station (about 10 minutes ride).
From there two trains per hour with one transfer in Manchester Piccadilly; total time in trains about 1h10min to MAN airport station.
If possible get First Transpennine trains for both sectors. Not operating from Liverpool South Parkway, but do avoid using Northern (serving other Liverpool stations)..
Check train times on nationalrail.co.uk Station codes are LPY to MIA.

Trains from BHX (station: Birmingham International, BHI) take between 2h10 and 2h30 min to MAN (airport), but are more costly than from LPL.

BM's flight from ANR to MAN is a cheap option, however as said there is no flight on sat.
Other options include

BRU-MAN on SN (expensive)
CRL-MAN on FR (around 50 EUR)
AMS-MAN on EZY (66 EUR, good schedule)

Count me in, however I'll be using a rather boring train combination to get there since my nearest major international airport is Manchester (and there's no flights Blackpool-Manchester). But I should be free on a Saturday for a look at Concorde (It was never open for viewing the few times I've been to the viewing park)

I think there's a direct train from Liverpool South Parkway to Manchester Airport station, but I'm not sure how you'd get from Liverpool Airport to Liverpool South Parkway (I know that's the nearest however)

Well, you still can route BLK - IOM - MAN if you fell like flying. I know what I am talking about as I have done it before.

Currently not showing on nationalrail.co.uk . Also last summer I could get no direct train between the two very stations.

See my reply #9 for bus service between LPL and Liverpool South Parkway. Buses run every 15 minutes or so (Airlink 501 - not a free shuttle). http://www.liverpoolairport.com/from-airport/by-bus.html

That's quite a good idea although I don't mind trains, actually I could do an interesting train journey...

Quoting Ht (Reply 12):

There's a First Transpennine Express service to Manchester Piccadilly and then there's very frequent trains between Manchester Piccadilly and Manchester Airport. Piccadilly station is pretty good as stations go in the UK and a very easy transfer/connection, in fact I don't think there would even be a change of platform in most cases. The whole journey (including the connection) is an hour 10 on modern trains (not crapped out Northern Rail things).

Yeah, I'll definitely make my way over for this! Then perhaps tag a late afternoon/evening shopping and a meal in Manchester!

Excellent news !
You are sure that you want to arrive 1625h from IOM and depart 1740h to AMS ? This will include a treck from T3 to T2 (via T1 in MAN's weird terminal numbering). Can be done but leaves little time for delays.

Nice routing.
My flight out of ANR currently is hampered by the (temporarily) suspension of FYRA train service between NL and Belgium.
I will have to make up my mind about train routing, as the current IC-to-Thalys connection at Amsterdam Centraal is a bit too tight for my taste.
