We also use cookies for the purpose of remarketing through Google, by building a closed group of users, with which to offer information or exclusive offers from time-to-time. Continue to use the site as normal if you're happy with this, or read on to find out how to manage cookies.

What are Cookies used for?

Cookies used do not contain personal data. The cookies contain only a unique number and, in case of multi variate testing, a number indicating which version of the website has been presented and when that occurred. There are several other cookies on this website, which are all session based and will therefore become inactive when you leave Manchester Airport's web site.

Why we use Cookies

We monitor how many people use the site and what they use. We do this to improve the digital experience. We use a tracking tool called Digital Analytix, they use cookies (processed in Digital Analytix) to recognise returning visitors and these cookies have a validity of 5 years.

We sometimes build temporary lists of cookies from visitors who behave in certain ways when using our website. This is done using Google Adwords or Google Analytics. We can target this closed group of users with special offers or messages, only available to those on list, when they search in Google.

How do I delete my cookies?
