Greater Manchester Metrolink’s new line to Manchester Airport will open to passengers next month, over 12 months ahead of schedule.
Services will run to the airport every 12 minutes from Monday, November 3.
Journeys from the airport to Cornbrook, where passengers can connect with other services to stops across the network, will take around 45 minutes.
The new facilities includes a 300-space park and ride, free for Metrolink passengers to use, at the Sale Water Park stop, near Junction 6 of the M60.
The 14.5km Airport line will bring the size of the Metrolink network – owned by Transport for Greater Manchester – to 92.5km (57.5 miles), serving 92 stops.
