Direct flights from Manchester to Atlanta last 9 and a half hours and are currently on offer from airlines such as Virgin Atlantic and Delta Airways. The cheapest flights to Atlanta, however, are those operating with a stopover in another European or American city on route which can be as little as half the price of a direct Manchester to Atlanta flight, with Lufthansa for example. More often than not it will be a stop in Amsterdam, London or New York. Alternatively, if you choose to fly to Atlanta with Air France you are likely to stop in Paris before continuing to the main airport in Atlanta, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Hartsfield-Jackson is the world's busiest airport and home of the world's largest airlines, making the city a major port of entry into the US for a stopover or as a final destination. Arriving at Manchester airport in time for your Manchester to Atlanta flight is easy; either catch the train service from Piccadilly station or a bus both of which conduct regular trips to the airport, or take a taxi.
