Airport Delay? What Does Twitter Say?

Written by Casey

If you think Twitter is only good for keeping up-to-date on the minutiae of the everyday lives of your friends or the latest celebrity feud, you may be surprised by what you’re about to read.

Frequent travellers would do well to consider following the tweets of their local UK airport.  Even those who may just have a casual interest in the comings and goings at airports around the UK may find out some interesting facts.

Twitter's great for travel updates!

Most airports let followers know about current conditions via their Twitter accounts; helpful if you’re preparing for a flight, especially during inclement weather.  The best of the airport tweeters also provide various facts about the history of their airport, or even which celebrities have recently been spotted traipsing through their terminals.  If you’re on the move and you have a WAP-enabled mobile phone, you can take advantage of the real-time updates from the airports, too.

Manchester Airport (manairport) is amongst the most prolific and personable tweeters, letting followers know about local events, contests and a myriad of other facts that may be of interest to the populace.

If you’re interested in the latest news from Liverpool Airport, you can follow LPL_Airport.  They will let you know about new services flying from John Lennon Airport, recent airport events…and they even advised holidaymakers to bring a brolly when it was raining!

Birmingham Airport also maintains a friendly, information Twitter account (bhx_official).  They have links to historical pictures, late-breaking airport-related news and information about local weather conditions.

So there you go…if you thought Twitter was not very useful, or only for those with too much time on their hands, you might need to re-evaluate your opinion and check out the wealth of topical information to be had.

And don’t forget, the gosimply Twitter profile is a great place to find out about the latest deals on Manchester Airport parking, Birmingham Airport parking, parking at Liverpool Airport, and all sorts of other facts of interest to UK travellers.
