Manchester Airport (MAN/EGCC) has confirmed it is re-opening Terminal 2 from 15th July as passenger numbers increase at the UK’s 3rd busiest airport.

Terminals 2 & 3 closed earlier this year as almost all flights from Manchester Airport were suspended at the height of the Coronavirus pandemic. Terminal 3 re-opened on 1st July.

Tomorrow will be the first time all three terminals have open in 3 months.

Brad Miller, Chief Operating Officer 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.

“With the introduction of travel corridors, we envisage passenger numbers to continue to increase, which is why we are opening Terminal Two from 15th July, to maximise the airport space.

“These travel corridors will open up the chance for people to enjoy a well-earned break abroad and directly benefit the hundreds of thousands of people whose jobs depend on air travel for their livelihoods – whether they work in aviation or for the UK’s tourism and hospitality businesses, which can now welcome the first overseas visitors we will have seen for months.

“We have made our airport safe for our passengers and staff, and we have already started limited operations to many of these countries. With the quarantine requirement now removed, we look forward to safely welcoming back many more passengers in the coming weeks.

“I’d again 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.”
