Manchester Airport, a Corporate Partner of the FTE Digital, Innovation & Startup Hub, has unveiled an exciting addition to Terminal 1: the UK's first Gaming Point. This cutting-edge outlet invites passengers to immerse themselves in the world of video games and virtual reality before their flights.

What Is Gaming Point?

Gaming Point is a state-of-the-art facility that caters to both avid gamers and curious travellers. Here's what you'll find:

  • Gaming PCs loaded with popular titles like Fortnite, Red Dead Redemption 2, Among Us, Hogwarts Legacy, Minecraft, and Rocket League.
  • A Formula 1 simulator complete with a steering wheel and pedals.
  • A Nintendo Switch for portable gaming.
  • A Virtual Reality escape room, where passengers can don a headset and be transported to different worlds.

Passenger Experience at Manchester Airport

Richard Jackson, Retail Director at Manchester Airport, emphasized the commitment to passenger satisfaction: "We're proud to serve the people of the North, offering not only an unrivalled route network but also an unbeatable passenger experience. Most of our passengers breeze through security, leaving them ample time to relax in our departure lounges. The Gaming Point adds a new dimension, appealing to gamers and non-gamers alike."

Prices for gaming sessions start at just £7.50 for 30 minutes, with age restrictions applying to specific games.
