Which airlines fly to Manchester from Australia?

Manchester insider flight tips

  • If you prefer to only stop once, Emirates, Etihad and Qatar all operate direct flights from Australia to the Middle East and from there to Manchester. These flights tend to cost a fair bit more than flying with two stops, unless there is a sale. Fortunately, these sales tend to happen regularly. Sign up for the newsletters from these airlines so you’ll be alerted as soon as they have any special fares.
  • If you’re struggling to find a flight deal to Manchester, compare the flights to London as there are normally more options. You can then book a train ticket from London Heathrow Airport (LHR) to Manchester Piccadilly train station, with the transfer from the airport to London Euston train station included. The train journey is just over two hours and tickets are cheap if you book in advance.
  • Unless you’re flying from Perth, China Southern and China Eastern often have among the cheapest fares to Manchester from Australia, involving a change in China and a second change in Paris or Amsterdam. Both layovers tend to be long, extending the journey time significantly. Consider booking your flights to one of the major European hubs and spending a day or so there. You can then book an onward flight to Manchester with one of the major airlines or a low-cost carrier like Ryanair or Easyjet.
