City Airport can be a great destination for a day out, and is great for the kids too! On a good day when the sun is shining, there can be lots of activity to see.

Getting Here

You can get to City Airport easily by car or by bus. We are situated close to the M60/M62 Motorway, not far from The Trafford Centre and Salford City Stadium. Full Details here.

Opening Times

We are open daily except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day from 9am (Winter) and from 8.15am (Summer). We close (for flying) at sunset or 8pm (whichever is earliest). Full Details here.

Viewing the Aircraft

Much of the aircraft activity can be viewed from the public areas at the airport. We also have a balcony on the first floor of the Control Tower (A feature itself, being a Grade II listed building and the original Control Tower built in 1932). From the balcony you get excellent views of all the runways to see the aircraft landing and taking off.

Bar and Restaurant

To enhance your visit, all visitors are welcome in our very own Cafe/Bar – Runway 26.  Runway 26 is open daily except Mondays and offers drinks, snacks and meals and includes a garden area with kids climbing equipment, perfect for the kids. Full details here.
