Get your trip off to a flying start with Virgin Atlantic at Manchester International Airport. From check in details to airport facilities for departures and onward travel information for arrivals, don't stress - we've got it covered.
The best way to check in is online where you can pick your seat and print your boarding card. If you’re travelling with carry on baggage only, you can print off your own boarding pass and we’ll see you at the gate. Alternatively, you may use our automated check in kiosks which are located next to our desks in Terminal 2.
Leave those last-minute airport dashes to the big screen! We recommend that you arrive at least two hours before your flight is due to leave.
Counter check in and bag drop
You’ll find our desks in Terminal 2 at Desks 42 - 47. Check in starts from four hours before departure and closes one hour before departure. If your flight is in the early hours, you may drop your bags off the night before. All passengers will need to be present for this option. Twilight check in is available from 16.00 to 20.00 - please note, there is no dedicated Premium desk.
