Manchester Airport announces phased reopening of Terminal Three

25 March 2022/Categories: Industry News, Aviation

Manchester Airport has announced a gradual reopening of Terminal Three from Sunday 27th March.

The phased reopening will start with the terminal being used for arriving passengers travelling with a select number of airlines.

To allow for the additional flight movements, the airport is set to reopen its second runway from Tuesday 5th April. Initially it will operate for a limited number of hours each day and will gradually increase as the demand continues to rise. All local stakeholders will be made aware in advance of the reopening.

The remainder of Terminal Three, including the check-in hall and security, will be reopened at a later stage as the airport ramps up capacity in line with the recovery of passenger numbers, and passengers will be kept informed of any further changes.

Karen Smart, Managing Director of Manchester Airport, said:

“After almost two years of closure, it is a positive step forward on the road to recovery to be able to partially reopen Terminal Three and resume operating from both runways.

“We have taken this decision in light of an increase in passenger numbers since Covid-19 restrictions were lifted, which is projected to continue into the summer. People who these changes apply to should make sure they bear this in mind when making their travel arrangements.

“We are also aware many passengers won’t have flown for a long time so would always encourage them to prepare for their airport journey in advance, and to remind themselves of the rules around security and hand luggage.”
