From Manchester airport to York

Hi,

we are travelling to York on the 25th of June. Our plane arrives in Manchester at 9:50 AM. What is the best/cheapest/fastest way to get to York? Via train, bus or taxi?

Thanks!

The train is the best option - direct trains from the airport to York take about 1.5 hours. Cheaper if you book in advance: www.tpexpress.co.uk

Definitely the train, a taxi would probably cost more than your airfare!

There's advance tickets for £14 single currently showing as available on trains that morning. These fix you to travelling on the booked train but if you click on the terms and conditions in the event of your flight being delayed you are able to travel on the next service on tickets booked from the airport.

Ok, we will take the train :). We flight with Ryanair (arrive at terminal 3). How long would it take us to get from the airplane to the station? (in that way I know at what time I should book the train tickets)

Easements

Allow an hour - but

Tickets are train specific; however to accommodate inbound flight delays, journeys from John Lennon & Manchester Airports can be made on the next available TransPennine Express service up to 3 hours after the departure time stated on the ticket. Where no services depart within this time, the next TPE service may be used. Passengers wishing to use this must have their tickets endorsed at the Ticket Office before boarding the train. This is the only difference to other Advance tickets.

Are you returning to Manchester from York? If so then you should look at getting (flexible) saver returns for the train. From what I remember the fare is roughly the same as getting two advance singles, and you have flexiblity.
