'Tis the season to be supersonic

Date published: 18 November 2019

Manchester Airport’s Runway Visitor Park is once again hosting its popular annual Christmas tour in December. 

Set under the wings of the iconic Concorde, guests will be able to enjoy a two course Christmas lunch and a festive drink before an hour-long tour of Concorde. 

The tour will give guests the chance to sit on the famous seats that were once graced by celebrities and royalty, and explore the cockpit of this supersonic machine. 

Each person will receive a commemorative certificate to remind them of their tour as well.

Priced at £35, this year’s festivities will take place on Sunday 8 December. 

The Runway Visitor Park is a unique visitor centre overlooking Manchester Airport’s two runways.

From its elevated viewing spots, the park enables aviation enthusiasts to watch the take off and landings of the hundreds of daily flights at the airport.

If you’re looking to entertain the kids during the Christmas holidays, the park is also offering its popular Flight Academy. 

The academy gives kids the chance to climb onboard a real aircraft and sit in the cockpit as they learn more about aviation and flying a plane.

They’ll also get the chance to try their hand at being a pilot, cabin crew or air traffic controller in a role play session exploring the many careers at the airport.  It will take place on Saturday 28 December.
