Airport Concierge Terms and Conditions
These are the terms and conditions on which we supply your Airport Concierge product to you.
Please read these terms carefully. These terms tell you who we are, how we will provide the services to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information.
We are Manchester Airport PLC a company registered in England and Wales. Our company registration number is 01960988 and our registered office is at Fao Sylvia Welsh Manchester, Professional Services Limited, PO BOX 532, Town Hall, Manchester, M60 2LA. Our registered VAT number is 707 7228 31.
You can contact us by telephoning our customer service team at 0808 169 7030 (Calls are free from landlines and mobiles. Lines are open 7 days a week 08:00-20:00).
If we have to contact you we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address you provided to us in your order.
Placing your order
You can place your order on our booking site, and as part of the process we will let you know what is included in your VIP product and the price.
If the booking is placed less than 48 hours prior to your flight we may not be able to accept your order. We will inform you if this is the case and refund you any payment you have made for the service.
Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this by email and will not charge you for the services. This might be because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the service or because we are unable to provide the services on the date you have specified.
Our VIP Products
The details of what is available as part of our Airport Concierge product are outlined at the time of booking.
As you will see, some of the services are subject to availability and we cannot guarantee that we will be able to provide these services to you. We will whereever possible let you know which services are not available in advance of your arrival at the airport. The provision of services may be subject to airline approval, and in some instances will not be available. You are not entitled to a refund if a service flagged as ‘subject to availability’ is not available.
Our product is available to passengers over the age of 18, or to passengers under 18 year olds provided they are accompanied by a parent or guardian over 18 years of age. A maximum of 2 people are permitted per booking and therefore only 1 under 18 year old is permitted per booking.

We may change the services to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements, for example if there is a change in security requirements at the airport.
Providing the Airport Concierge product
We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the services is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any services you have paid for but not received.
Your right to cancel
You can cancel the contract by giving not less than 24 hours notice prior to your travel by visiting www.manchesterairport.co.uk and following the online instructions. You will receive written confirmation of the cancellation to the e-mail address stipulated. In the event of any problems, you may alternatively cancel by phoning 0808 169 7030*.

ALL BOOKINGS CANCELLED WITHIN 24 HOURS OF THE TRAVEL DATE WILL NOT BE REFUNDED.

Our right to end the contract
We may end the contract if you break it. We may end the contract for a service at any time by writing to you if:
- you do not make any payment to us when it is due; or

We reserve the right if prevented from supplying the services for any reason to cancel the contract and provide a full refund. We will attempt to provide as much notice as is possible.
Price and payment
The price of the Airport Concierge product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the VIP product advised to you is correct. However, please see below for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the service you order.
It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the services we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the service’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the service's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order.
We will take payment when you place your order, we accept payment from all major debit and credit cards and via Paypal.
Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you
We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen.
We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the services.
If we are providing services in your property, we will make good any damage to your property caused by us while doing so.

Other Important Terms
We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.

Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.

Students of the Academy, who are all 16 or over, attend an Assessment Centre as their first step into working at Manchester Airport. Bespoke training is delivered by Stockport College (our training partner) to all candidates to up-skill individuals and provide valuable work experience. The combination of service delivered is essential in assisting residents to gain access to suitable vacancies at the Airport.
Once in work students receive ongoing support and encouragement to develop their skills to ensure that their new working life is a rewarding one.
Airport Academy is a story of successful collaboration. While Manchester Airport has led the project, it has been made possible through high-level partnerships in the Airport Community Network.
For more information please see our the pages the Stockport College website; our training partner.
For some people finding work is more difficult than others so we have teamed up with Pure Innovations. This is an organisation that helps people with learning disabilities and those returning to work after a long term health condition to find the right job and to keep that job. On Friday we were delighted that this year’s intake of 11 students graduated from the programme. We are delighted to report that of these 7 students have moved into paid work in our hotels, shops and directly for Manchester Airport.
You can see a video clip here about the project.
