Manchester Airport (MAN/EGCC) is expecting a bumper Christmas period as families jet off for the holidays or home to be with family.

The airport is expecting 1.2m passengers to pass through its terminals between December 19th and January 5th making it one off the busiest in the 81-year history of the airport.

The five most popular destinations for passengers flying from Manchester over the festive period are Dublin, Dubai, Amsterdam, Tenerife and Doha.

 Lee Wasnidge, Customer Services and Security Director at Manchester Airport, said: “This is one of the most exciting times of the year for both our colleagues and our customers and we look forward to helping more than a million passengers in getting to their dream destinations this Christmas.

 “However, safety and security are just as important at this time of year as any other. We see an increase in passengers carrying unusual items, often as gifts for friends and family or as part of Christmas traditions. They can unwittingly end up falling foul of hand luggage regulations and the last thing we want to see is gifts being unwrapped or prevented or prevented from passing through security and making the journey to their end destination.”

As a result, the airport is offering the following advice to help passengers pass through the airport smoothly.
