Bus: You can find all the bus stops right outside the terminal.

Tram: Trams are one of the easiest ways and cheapest (£ 2) ways to get to and from the airport with fast and frequent services to the city centre. Trams depart every 7 minutes between 07:00 - 19:00 and every 15 minutes out-with these hours, with an end-to-end journey of just 30 minutes.
