The x30 and 103 will provide up to four buses an hour between the World Freight Terminal and the main Airport

Running non-stop from the M60 and M56 from Stockport to Manchester Airport, the service will also stop at the Airport interchange and World Freight Terminal.

While the new x30 will partially replace the existing 330, it will continue to run from Ashton to Stockport. The x30 and 103 will provide up to four buses an hour between the World Freight Terminal and the main airport. The new route is designed to cater to shift patterns for staff of Manchester Airport from 0415hrs from Monday to Saturday and 0635 on Sundays.

Stagecoach Manchester Managing Director, Elisabeth Tasker, said: “It is crucial our services are designed with the people who rely and use them regularly in mind. We wanted to introduce the new x30 service, and extend the existing 103 service, to ensure that both holiday makers and staff travelling to the airport are provided with practical and affordable transport links at hours convenient to them.”

Wayne Poole, Landside Operations Director at Manchester Airport, said:

“Alongside the other methods of public transport such as rail, tram and coach services, this new bus route will provide a vital link for many people travelling to and from Manchester Airport.

“Giving our 28.5m passengers, and 25,000 staff based on site, increased options to access the airport is crucial as we continue to grow and play the role of economic generator and employment creator for the region.”
