Save 25% on PremiAir at Manchester

A 25% saving takes the service down to £75 per person which makes it well worth considering.  In fact, I genuinely think it is great value at that price for what you get.

My very positive review of PremiAir is here.  We gave it an Editor’s Choice award for ‘Best New Independent Airport Lounge’ at the Head for Points 2019 Travel & Loyalty Awards.  Look out for the trophy on their reception desk if you visit.

You need to book via the PremiAir website here.  Don’t forget the PREMIAIR25 code.
