Kent International (Manston) Airport Passenger Reviews and Traveller Reports
Kent International (Manston) Airport customer review : 11 December 2013 by Phil Elderton (UK)|
Rating : 10/10
Excellent airport. Car park to check-in to security to departure lounge within 150 steps!!. Then only another 100
steps to the aircraft. At the moment KLM is the only passenger operator using a small Fokker 70 so not busy at
all. Only a small cafe but considering check in time and flight length to Amsterdam (35 mins) it is all that is
needed. I have flown from here twice in last couple of months and both occasions have been a pleasure. Both have
also been to connect to KLM long haul services from Schipol as got fed up with the journey time to LHR and the
departure delays from there, and the amount of times have to do circles around London before landing on return.
Next flight already booked from here.

Manston is an excellent small airport. The staff, immigration, customs and police are friendly but still
professional. Check-in was handled well. Security was a little laborious but was thorough and in no way
objectionable. There is a small shop and a bar/cafeteria which considering the short amount of time needed to
check in is all that is required. A great option for those traveling to or from the south east corner of England.
I hope the route to Amsterdam is successful as it is so much more pleasant than flying from one of the big London
airports; Heathrow in particular. I have heard that a rail link will be coming.

Lovely little airport, parking 5 minutes from the terminal, clean and quick and efficient
security baggage handling etc. It is very convenient for those of us living in the south east
However, due to endless bureaucratic wranglings, the airport is much underused and rail links
to London are tedious.

My friends returned to Manston Kent International Airport from a Kent Escapes holiday in Mallorca in
May. They were kept waiting outside of the terminal building between the aircraft and the terminal
arrivals for all most one hour whilst waiting for one immigration officer to check all the 180
approx inbound passengers on the flight. Shame on the Immigration Service and Kent International
Airport to keep passengers waiting on a cold and windy day especially when some passengers were in
their seventies, as my friends are.

Manston is a wonderful airport to fly out of, I walked next to my bags as I left the aircraft and
collected them withing two minutes. The airport's size means within another minute I was at the
main entrance. Departure is wonderful, check in was quick, despite there only being six desks. Within the blink of
an eye you are in the departure area. Don't expect vast shopping areas or money eating

Even though it is small this is one of my favourite airports. It's a 1 minute walk from the plane
to the terminal, baggage is normally on the belt as soon as you arrive in and the best part is the
cafe, not only is it cheap but they have excellent hot bacon rolls and the fresh cakes are excellent
too. If only public transport links were better though I have been told the National Express
service to London will soon call at Kent International.

This airport was previously known as London Manston, which is a bit of a
joke because of how far it is from London. However, with a name change,
new terminal and new budget airline EUJet has started to raise its
profile. I travelled through there on the way to/from Amsterdam. The
airport is small which works to its advantage. Check in was very fast
and the staff very helpful. The car park is right outside the terminal
entrance and is very cheap (£5/day or £20/week). The small cafeteria is
good and clean. The aircraft are right out side the terminal so no long
bus rides or endless walkways. On the way back it took less than 10
minutes to reach my car from the time the wheels touched the ground (I
had no luggage). All in all, a very good experience.
