The Check-in desks can be found on the upper level of departures. Be sure to check the live departures information to stay up to date with any changes to your flight.
It's always wise to give yourself plenty of time to check-in before a flight, and we advise giving yourself around;
Self-service check-in is available at Manchester Airport, with kiosks situated in the Departures area of each Terminal. The kiosks are conveniently located to allow you to avoid the queues by printing your Boarding Pass yourself.
All you need is your passport, e-ticket number or credit card used to book, follow the on-screen instructions to print off your boarding card and drop off your luggage at the bag drop desks. The locations of the bag drop desks are marked on screens next to the kiosk..
Fast Track is a great service that allows you to skip the security queues using a dedicated Fast Track Lane - and for only £6 extra per person!
