Manchester and Stansted airports each handled more than 2.5 million passengers last month.

The sister MAG-owned airports were helped by multiple bank holidays and the half-term school break in May.

Manchester airport was also boosted as it handled more than 100,000 passengers on a single day on June 9 for the first time since pre-pandemic 2019 as Manchester City fans flew to Istanbul for the Champions League final.

Stansted’s passenger numbers in May grew by 19% year-on-year to more than 2.55 million, while Manchester saw a 15.5% rise to surpass 2.5 million.

The Essex airport recorded its busiest day of the year so far with 92,920 passengers passing through the terminal on May 29.

The busiest day of flights was on May 26 with 602 arrivals and departures.

Both airports reported that 96% of passengers passed through security in 15 minutes or less.

The busiest route from both airports was to Palma in May.

Stansted chief operating officer Jon Fowler said: “This May was a really busy and positive month for London Stansted with the three bank holidays and half-term school break boosting passenger numbers.

“We welcomed many people flying into the UK from around Europe for the King’s coronation, while many Brits took advantage of the additional day off to head away on holiday or visit family and friends.

“We know our passengers want a reliable and efficient experience when passing through the airport, and as we look ahead to even busier days across the peak of summer, we will continue our work with our business partners across the campus to ensure that’s what we all deliver.”

Manchester airport managing director Chris Woodroofe said: “Football is such an important part of life for many people so it was a real privilege for all of us at Manchester Airport to be able to help thousands of fans get out to Istanbul smoothly and share in an unforgettable experience.

“As the UK’s global gateway in the north we play a key role in making sure that people in the region can get to major global events like the Champions League final. It shows that we’re ready for a successful summer and that people can feel confident they’ll get a great experience at the airport as they start their holidays.

“Passenger numbers increasing year-on-year shows the importance of international travel to people in the area so whether you’re heading to Palma for a family holiday or jetting off to Dubai on business you’ll get the best start to your journey here at the airport.”

Meanwhile, MAG’s third airport, East Midlands, handled around 400,000 passengers in May – up 12% on 2022.

MAG’s rolling 12-month passenger total to May 2023 stood at 55.5 million passengers – up 92% on the total to May last year.

Tokyo Transport Guide

Tokyo has developed a dense network of metro, train and bus lines that serve the Greater Tokyo area. As Tokyo is a very busy city, the public transport is the best way to get around the city. With the multilingual signage and instructions, the public transport is very accessible for tourists.

The rail network dominates the public transport in Greater Tokyo. There are several companies which operate the most extensive rail network in the world. The 13 metro lines cover central Tokyo, especially the area inside the Yamanote circle, around Ginza and east of the loop line. The busiest stations are Shinjuku Station, Ikebukuro Station and Shibuya Station.

JR East is the largest railway company in the world. It provides most of the railway traffic in Tokyo, as well as, to other destinations in Japan. There are several other companies that provide commuter train service to the nearby area. The Shinkansen (Bullet Train) is fast train service that connects the major cities in Japan. The travel time from Osaka/Kyoto to Tokyo is about three hours.

The bus network is not heavily used in the city centre. It's more convenient for places outside the central area. They are not as frequent as the trains, but they are a good alternative if you want to avoid the crowds.

Tokyo Narita International Airport (NRT) is the main one serving Greater Tokyo. It is located on the border between Narita and Shibayama, around 60 km from Tokyo. There are regular train, bus, taxi and private airport transfer services to Tokyo and the surrounding area.

Narita Airport is served by express and commuter trains. Narita Express is connected to Tokyo Station via the Narita and Sobu lines. The suburban JR rapid service train follows the same route to Tokyo Station with several intermediate stops which makes the travel time longer. Keisei provides train services to central Tokyo and the suburbs, as well.

Regular bus services run from Tokyo Narita Airport to the Tokyo City Air Terminal, major hotels and railway stations in the Greater Tokyo Area. Buses are generally slower than trains because of the traffic conditions. An overnight bus service to Kyoto and Osaka is available, as well.

The airport taxi service in Tokyo is fast and reliable. They charge by the meter and additional charges may apply for night rides.

To stay away from the crowds, it's best to book a private Tokyo Narita airport transfer with us. Our premium service includes a door-to-door airport transfer in comfortable and luxury vehicles at fixed cost. The English-speaking driver will meet you at the arrivals gate and take you directly to your hotel, and we hope you enjoy the airport transfer from Tokyo Narita Airport to Tokyo city centre.

Tokyo Haneda Airport (HND) is the second one that serves Greater Tokyo. It is located closer to the city centre, around 14 km. There are regular train and bus lines that run to Tokyo. The latest prices for a private airport taxi from Tokyo Haneda Airport to Tokyo city centre are on the link.
