Manchester Airport, like with almost all airports across the country, sometimes needs to delay or cancel flights. Often this is out of the control of the airport, and can be the knock on effect of disruption elsewhere.

However, regardless of why, flights are sometimes impacted. Keeping on top of any changes to your flight is important to make sure you don't make a wasted journey or to ensure you arrive at the airport in plenty of time. Cancellations and other disruptions to flights are a possibility, so making sure you are in the know about anything which may impact your journey is key.
