Frequently Asked Questions

Does this lounge have a view?

The lounge has one of the best views in the airport and is completely glass fronted from top to bottom. You can sit back on our reclining chairs and take in the views of the busy airfield & runway. If you look closely enough, you may be able to spot The Jodrell Bank Observatory in the far distance ( obviously depending on the typically rainy Manchester weather).

Can I use this lounge if I am not flying from Terminal 1?

No, due to security restrictions you can only use this lounge if you are departing from Terminal 1. We also have a lounge in Terminal 2 for flights departing from there. Unfortunately we do not have a lounge in Terminal 3.

Does this lounge offer sandwiches?

Yes, the lounge offers sandwiches at select times of the day (such as lunchtime) with accompanying snacks such as hand cooked Corkers Crisps - which are delicious. Our sandwiches are also delicious and wholesome but are meant as a snack rather than a meal replacement - we have a fair use policy and ask guests to take only what they need.

Does this lounge have somewhere that I can work?

Should you wish to catch up on last minute business, the Aspire lounge at Manchester Terminal 1 offers private, single occupancy offices (equipped with a desk) for guests to use completely free-of-charge. The lounge also offers a large Quiet Zone should guests wish to work in an open area.

Do you have any local specialties?

We are proud to offer Boddingtons Bitter in addition to our standard drinks selection.

Does this lounge have a dress code?

We understand that all our customers want to travel in comfortable clothing with our lounges having a relaxed dress code to reflect this. We do ask that guests refrain from wearing sportswear (such as football shirts, tracksuits, baseball caps etc) and clothing with offensive slogans. Smart, tailored shorts are accepted.

Can I earn LoungeMiles® Stamps at this lounge?

Yes you can at all UK Swissport and Aspire Lounges.
