Manchester's Top Ten Travel Destinations Revealed

THE most popular destination from Manchester Airport is...Tenerife, we can reveal.

The Canary Island ranks ahead of Majorca and Alicante in the top ten of popular destinations.

Dubai is the only Middle Eastern route in the top ten, thanks to the three times a day Emirates service, although that may change with the double daily Etihad service to neaby Aby Dhabi.

New York also makes an appearance - a route which had been lost in 2010 before it was brought back by American Airlines earlier this year.

The top ten ranking shows how short-haul flights are more popular than long haul with discount carriers such as RyanAir, Easy Jet and Monarch servicing the majority of flights.
