Manchester International Airport (IATA airport code: MAN, ICAO airport code: EGCC) is an airport in Manchester, England. It is the UK's third largest airport (after Heathrow and Gatwick). In 2003 it handled 20 million passengers and provided direct flights to over 180 destinations worldwide by over 90 airlines. It is owned by the Manchester Airport Group who own several other UK airports.

Located on the boundary between Cheshire and Manchester in England, the airport, formerly known as Ringway, is a hub for British Airways flights, and many other British carriers. It has two parallel runways, three adjacent terminals and a railway station. It was once the centre of operations of Cargolux's charter airline venture, Lion Air.

One of the British Airways Concorde supersonic airliners taken out of service earlier in the same month arrived at Manchester Airport on 31 October 2003 for use as a static display.

Because of the length of its runways the airport is able to handle large jets, including the Airbus A340 and the Boeing 747. For this reason, Manchester airport was frequently used as a diversion airport for Concorde if Heathrow and Gatwick were fogbound.
