Manchester Airport update

In addition to the scores of the flights that have already re-started, last week saw the return of easyJet to the Greek island of Kefalonia, Funchal (Madeira), Olbia (Sardinia) and Tivat (Montenegro).  Back on line is Aegean Airlines to Athens and TAP Air Portugal with Lisbon.  TUI has instigated service to Bodrum (Turkey), Chania (Crete), and the much smaller Greek islands of Santorini and Skiathos.

All three of Manchester Airport’s terminals are in operation, as more airlines resume services and retail outlets start to re-open.  Passengers are advised to check which terminal they are flying from before arriving at the airport, as some airlines are operating from different ones than they normally would.

The following airlines have moved to Terminal 2:  Air Malta, Brussels Airlines, Etihad Airways, Ethiopian Airlines and Iran Air.

The airport also encourages passengers to watch this video before coming to the airport, to ensure they are as prepared as possible.

Free water fountains have been provided across the site to fill up empty bottles as passengers and flights return.  More and more retail offerings are available to purchase food and drink.

The Escape lounges in Terminals 1 and 2 are now open but with restricted opening hours.

Karen Smart, Managing Director at Manchester Airport, said: “As we continue to see the return of more airlines and destinations for our passengers to fly to, we remain fully committed to ensuring their safety throughout their airport journey.

“In what would normally be our busiest month of the year, it is pleasing to see routes are increasing each week, giving passengers who want to travel the choice and opportunity to do so. This is why we now have all three terminals in operation, to allow passengers to maintain and keep a safe distance whilst on site.

“I’d like to thank all our passengers for continuing to abide by the measures in place during these uncertain times, and also thank all our staff who have gone above and beyond to ensure safe travel for all.”
