PremiAir offers groups of between five and 50 people access to one of its three private suites, including non-travelling guests.

Secure parking will be available for an unspecified additional fee.

“The premium package will represent some of the best hospitality in the north-west and will allow guests to start and end their trip in style, with personalised service and top-quality food served alongside fine wines and champagnes.

“PremiAir has been launched following specific feedback from passengers that it is a facility that they would welcome.

“It is unlike anything else offered at UK airports and we are convinced it will be welcomed by passengers at Manchester, whether they are flying off on the holiday of a lifetime or on business.”
