Aspire Lounge Manchester T1

Relax in style in the Aspire Airport Lounge

Specatcular floor-to-ceiling windows allow you to look out over the apron and the runway where you can see some of world's biggest planes land and take off, all whilst relaxing in a comfortable seat with your favourite drink and something delicious to eat.


Aspire understand that guests travel for all sorts of reasons and purposes, and they bear this in mind when facilitating guests. The Aspire Lounge at Manchester T1 has Work Booths for those travelling on business, which works as your office away from the office, fully kitted out with everything you need.

For those not on business there are Family Booths, each equipped with their own Smart TV, allowing you to pick the channel you want to watch or take advantage of catch up TV services such as BBC iPlayer. You could even be the envy of your friends by checking-in on Social Media. 


Unwind in the unparalleled comfort of the specifically designed, fit-for-purpose reclining chairs, and take in the stunning views of the airport runway, as the world’s biggest aircraft arrive into Manchester.
