October hosts the Manchester Literature Festival, where renowned authors have been specially commissioned. Even though it’s during the off peak season, you’ll need to book your flights to Manchester early to save money on your flight tickets as the price will increase as October approaches.

British Airways and FlyBE are the major two airlines that offer direct flights to Manchester, although other airlines such as KLM do offer cheap flight tickets but you’ll have an in-direct flight. British Airways have the benefit of providing complimentary food and drinks on board their flights, however you might not be able to take advantage of this due to the short flight time. Cheap flights to Manchester are easily found though, so compare between British Airways and FlyBE over similar dates as one might be a lot cheaper than the other and vice versa.

How to get from the airport to the city centre?

There is a dedicated station at the airport which runs in association with Trainline. You can jump on to get to the centre of Manchester or even to other major cities if you need to. You can find cheap tickets online or buy them at the airport, however if you buy them in advance online you will save money. From the same station at the airport you can also get a coach, again if you buy your tickets in advance then it’ll be cheaper for you. The coaches are from National Express who sometimes offer ridiculously cheap tickets, which is more than welcome after you’ve bought your flight tickets. Another option is to jump on a tram from the station to get into Greater Manchester. On top of that you can rent a car or get a taxi from outside the airport, however it won’t be cheap and due to the many other options it would make more sense to use the public transport.
