Liverpool Airport to Manchester: It has just come to our attention that bus company TERRAVISION have ceased operating between Liverpool Airport and Manchester City Centre. We have contacted Liverpool airport and they have assured us that they are trying to find another operator for this route.
In the mean time, fans will have to take the local bus, 86A or 80A or 500 express into Liverpool city centre and get the train to Manchester.
Please keep this in mind when booking flights etc as this will add considerable time to your journey.
