Manchester Helicopters has two locations for helicopter hire. They are Manchester Barton Heliport, now known as Manchester City Heliport. The other is Manchester Airport. Manchester Barton is the most popular Helicopter landing site because of its proximity to Manchester City Centre. This is mainly due to lower airport fees. Manchester Airport is suitable for helicopter hire and charter if you wish to depart during unsocial hours or use one of our private jets based at Manchester Airport.

Helicopter hire to and from Manchester is a popular method of travel. Indeed, Manchester boasts two Premier League teams. Manchester United (Old Trafford) and Manchester City (Etihad Stadium).

When overseas clients visit the UK, they often have unique requests, including helicopter charters from London to Manchester to catch a game. It’s no surprise why they opt for this mode of transportation. With just over 1 hour of flight time, it’s the perfect choice for quick and convenient travel.

Helicopter transfers at Manchester are available for clients who charter a private jet to Manchester.

Insured Helicopters


Helicopters used for helicopter flights to Manchester are twin-engine and single-engine helicopters; we have the pleasure of supplying you with both options. Sometimes, choosing a single or twin can be because of your preference, or more often than not, it’s due to the times you wish to fly. Night flights have to be in a twin engine.
