Manchester ‘offers cheapest airport car parking’


Motorists using parking facilities near Manchester Airport are benefitting from some of the cheapest prices in the country, according to research.

Which? Car magazine has conducted a study to determine the cost of a week’s parking at 15 of the UK’s busiest airports, with Manchester’s park-and-ride service, operated by Purple Parking, coming in cheapest at £19.84.

Off-airport parking provisions offered by the company in Liverpool also ranked highly for value, while on-site parking at Heathrow in London was shown to be the costliest at £88.70.

The Which? consumer group expressed concern that motorists around the country are seeing extremely variable results in terms of quality of service and cost.

A spokesperson said: “Travellers from the UK’s major airports now have more choice than ever … However, this means prices can range from sublimely low to ridiculously high.”

Last month, the Liverpool Echo reported that Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport has had to introduce a reduced parking fee in recent weeks so as not to unduly penalise car owners stranded abroad due to the volcanic ash cloud disruptions.
