Mancunia Travel is the main operator of charter flights direct to Lourdes airport from the North of the UK.


Our direct flights to Lourdes offers a unique service which is not provided by any other UK company.  With only a 2 hour 30 minutes / 3 hours flight time, and an airport transfer to the centre of Lourdes of only 20 minutes, travelling with us offers the most convenient and fastest service to Lourdes from the North of the UK.

Our Lourdes charter flights include:

• All taxes and charges, no supplements to pay
• FREE luggage allowance is included with all our charter flights.
• Wheelchair loan in Lourdes, if required, but must be requested in advance.

Other flights to Lourdes

To coincide with our charter flights, we have teamed up with some excellent schedule service carriers and can offer a shorter break in Lourdes. Departing Manchester most days with flights to Toulouse, we can arrange tailor made pilgrimages for groups and individuals, but with a minimum 4 people travelling.
With our own staff and transportation in Lourdes we will meet you at Toulouse and look after you throughout your pilgrimage.

 

We can also offer flights from London Stansted on most Fridays and selected Mondays from Easter until October. Please telephone us on 0161 883 1515 for more information.

 

It's not just about prayer - complementing the spiritual appeal of Lourdes is the beauty of the surrounding area. Lying in the south-west corner of France, the town enjoys a wonderful setting in the foothills of the Pyrenees - the mountains which form the frontier with Spain.

Our optional excursions can give you a taste of the local countryside. In Bartres you can experience wonderful scenery and clear mountain air.

If you'd rather stay in Lourdes itself, there are plenty of ways to spend your time, these include:
shops, golf course, a funicular railway on the Pic du Jer, the "little train", the local pool, the chateau, a tour of the City Poor, or simply relax at one of the cafe bars.

Optional Excursions

All our excursions are subject to minimum numbers.

Half day visit to the Pyrenean mountain village of Gavarnie, set against the spectacular backdrop of Europe’s highest waterfall.

Half day visit to Bartrès, where St Bernadette spent part of her childhood. Mass at the Parish Church can be arranged.

Half day visit to the shrine of Our Lady of Betharram and the Lac de Lourdes.

Half day trip to Pont d'Espagne, in the high Pyrenees, where you will take a ski lift visit to the Lac de Gaube.

Other excursions may be available on request and subject to sufficient numbers.

Although we are pleased to offer our Pilgrims a choice of over 50 hotels, we are featuring six of the most popular choices. By minimising the number of featured hotels we hope to encourage our Pilgrims to be fully involved in the pilgrimage programmes that we offer.


What’s included in the price?
Lourdes pilgrimages include flights, all taxes, transfers to and from Lourdes, full board accommodation - breakfast, lunch and dinner. You will also have one of our experienced guides looking after you throughout your stay, and a spiritual programme.


Accommodation is on a Full Board basis. Please select your hotel carefully and you will find the package prices are shown within their relevant categories. The accommodations featured have been carefully selected by us, having worked closely with the owners for many years, and we are confident of the complete support and service they can offer to our pilgrims. Above all they fully comply with all French Health and Safety regulations.
