     Regular Customer Reward

As a loyalty reward, all our regular customers can benefit from a 50% discount when their booking is matching one of our empty returns. Many people travelling often between Sheffield and Manchester Airport would choose the train as the most cost effective way of transportation.  That is absolutely right, but when there are 2 or more customers travelling together and they also require a taxi to get them to the Sheffield Railway Station, the total price can be higher. It is always a good idea to call Air Taxis Sheffield and ask if they have any empty returns around that time. If your journey time is matching one of our empty returns, Air Taxis Sheffield staff  will be more than happy to offer you a 50% discount on that journey. In this way you will benefit from a full taxi or minibus service from Sheffield to Manchester Airport, door to door service, at half the original price.

     Travelling abroad checklist

     Before travelling abroad, apart from the usual things like checking your passports and visas, you may like to have a look at the following checklist, to make sure your holiday will be as pleasant as it should:

- Try to find few reviews and facts about the country you are going to visit.

- Ask your travel agent if there are any contingency plans and emergency contact numbers that you could use.

- If you plan to drive abroad, check that your licence is still valid and print a DVLA check code to share your driving record, if requested by the hire company.

- Inform your bank, so they can authorize your transactions abroad and take with you more than one means of payment.

- Contact your phone network to see how you can use it abroad without incurring additional charges.

- Purchase a travel insurance, to cover all activities that you are likely to do and if travelling thru Europe you can still get a free European Health Insurance Card.

     New hand luggage restrictions                                                                                                                      In response to information that terrorists are planning to conceal explosives within electronic devices, new restrictions are in place, on what passengers can take in their hand luggage. Restriction is in force now for all UK flights arriving from Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon. Also affected, are all transfer flights with a connection in one of the above countries. That covers any laptops, tablets, big cameras, Nintendo games or similar and any other electronic devices, larger than 16 cm by 9.3 cm by 1.5 cm . Mobile phones like iPhone 7 and Galaxy S 7, S 8,   or smaller are still accepted, but must be charged and capable of being switched on if requested. You can still take your larger electronic devices in the hold, rather than in the cabin luggage. Major airlines, now offer laptops and tablets once you are on board, in a try to compensate for the security restrictions. To check if you are affected by the new restrictions, please contact your travel agent or your airline. Air Taxis Sheffield drivers, can wait for you at the airport and return your extra luggage or electronic items if requested.

 I hope you will have a swift flight and a wonderful holiday!

    New FAST TRACK service to start at Manchester airport

    From August 2017, Manchester Airport will offer a new Fast Track lane. All passengers traveling through Manchester Airport towards any destination, will have the option to buy the Fast Track tickets up to 4 hours before the flight, at a cost that was not yet been decided. This new service should allow the willing to pay passengers, to pass though the passport control in under 15 minutes, comparing with the 30 minutes to 1 hour wait in the normal lanes. Few other airports have already implemented the Fast Track, but the passengers are fearing that the same Border Control staff is diverted to the new money making system.  Considering the advanced technology available this days, is hard to explain why the passengers have to spend 3 hours in the airport for every flight, especially now when flying is not a novelty anymore.
