Booking a train to where? Long distance or to the center? If the flight is on time you should be able to make it. But if it is delayed by 30 mins or so it'll be very tight...

Isn't there a train from the Manchester Airport to Leeds every 30 minutes? Must you purchase train tickets in advance? Your flight may be delayed, ground transportation may be slow... It's better to have to wait a while than to miss your connection after a tiring vacation and long flight home.

You can buy an advance ticket on a Transpennine Express service for a particular train.

If your flight is delayed and you missed your train then get your ticket authorised at the ticket office to travel on the next Transpennine Express train.

There's no 1030 train from Manchester Airport to Leeds (it's at 1033) but as said above they run about every half hour (hourly on Sundays) and if you miss the booked train because of a flight delay you should be able to get your ticket changed or endorsed for a later train.

If it's a 1030 to somewhere else (there isn't one I can find) it may be run by a different company who have different rules.
