Manchester Airport closes two terminals

//Manchester Airport closes two terminals

In a statement from Charlie Cornish, CEO of Manchester Airport Group, the news of a significant drop in global demand for air travel has impacted Manchester Airport: “Like all airports across the world, Manchester Airport has experienced a significant fall in passenger volumes as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Given this reduction in departing and arriving flights, and the likelihood traffic will decline further, we have taken the decision to work towards operating from a single terminal.

“This will happen from 25 March and all flights that were due to depart from Terminal Two and Terminal Three, will now do so from Terminal One. This means passengers should check-in and pass through security in Terminal One from this date.

“Throughout this transition, we will have colleagues on hand to help passengers and will have extra wayfinding in place to guide people to the right places. More information on the change in terminals can be found on our website, or passengers can follow our social media channels for the latest advice and help.”
