Airport Transfers

On this page you will find information about our airport transfer and taxi services.

We provide a transfer service for students staying in Melton Guest House and in Homestay arranged by the College. For students arranging their own accommodation, please contact the College to discuss the options. Students under the age of 18 must use the transfer service unless travelling with an adult relative. For more information, please contact the College

Which Airports are included?

The service is provided from:

Manchester International Airport (MAN)

Leeds Bradford International Airport (LBA)

What does the service include?

On arrival

Students will be met by a representative of the College - often, but not always, their driver. The representative will be waiting outside the security area, in a prominent position. They will be holding a sign with the Melton College logo.

On departure

The representative will stay with the student until they have successfully checked-in. They will accompany them to the security area.


When is the service available?

The service is only available on Sundays between fixed times. To make the service as clear as possible, all times are the scheduled arrival and departure times for flights.


To use the service, your chosen flight must land between 0700 and 2000.


To use the service, your chosen flight must depart between 0700 and 2000.

What happens if a flight is outside the set times?

Students using flights outside the set times should consider a taxi transfer.


Can students agree to wait longer at the airport to avoid additional charges?

Only if they are aged 18 or older.

Will we be charged extra if a flight is early or late?

No. However, if it is cancelled and re-booked you will need to buy a taxi transfer if the new flight does arrive or depart within the set times.

How much will it cost?

Note, this is a shared service. The fee is to join a shared service. All students pay the same fee.

Airport Cost per person per journey
Manchester £75
Leeds £75
Unaccompanied Minor (Inbound) +£10
Unaccompanied Minor (Outbound) +£40

How long will I have to wait?

Students using the College's transfer service may be expected to wait for up to 2  hours at the airport from the published landing time of their flight plus the time to clear customs (60 mins). Melton College arranges transfers on the understanding that students should arrive at the airport for check-in at least 120 minutes before their flight and may be delivered up to 2 hours earlier than that time.

Can my child travel as a Unaccompanied Minor?

Of course, and this offers parents of younger students great peace of mind. There is a small additional charge per child to cover additional administration and waiting times.

Can I book a taxi instead?

Yes. Obviously, a taxi may be more expensive. Please contact the College for details.
