Lancaster to Manchester Airport

Hi, I need to go to Manchester Airport from Lancaster. I need to be at the airport by 6:00 AM. Could anyone please let me know if there are any buses that can get me to Manchester Airport from Lancaster at that time and what's the pick up point?

Apparently there are no trains at that time according to my online searches.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

National Express seem to do a coach leaving 02;25 and arriving at MAN 04:15 so probably a bit early for you but that seems your only option other than a cab or going the night before and staying at the airport.

If you don’t want to go the night before, the option Ronaldo has given is the best one. It’s not too much earlier then the time you need to be at the airport. There are plenty of places to sit and there’s a couple of 24 hour shops where you can get drinks and snacks etc.

There are several places to eat and drink which are open 24 hours, they are mainly in arrivals and particularly terminal 1. So that would be a good place to stay a while before moving on to your appropriate check-in terminal. The terminals are within easy walking distance of each other.

All public transport (trains, trams, city buses and long-distance buses) goes to the transport hub known as 'The Station'. From there it is 5 -10 minutes walk to the 3 terminals, using covered walkways. From the station, T1 and T3 are in one direction, and T2 the other. This rather cluttered map gives you an idea:

Which terminal are you flying from in the morning?

EDIT Sorry, I misread your question. I'll reply separately but will leave this on here in case it's useful for you or someone else.

I’m pretty sure you get it from the main bus station. This might help you. https://coachtracker.nationalexpress.com/sto…

Please ignore the map linked to in posts 7 - that is for the daytime coaches. At night when the bus station is locked up, National Express pick up at the side of the bus station on Damside Street - see https://coachtracker.nationalexpress.com/sto… (which is the link MysticManc gave you).
