Manchester Airport has announced a gradual reopening of Terminal Three from this Sunday, adding it will not fully re-open until ‘later in the year’.

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

Those flying with Aurigny, British Airways, Eastern Airways, Iberia Express, Loganair, Ryanair and Vueling will continue to check-in and go through security in Terminal One, but when they return to Manchester they will arrive into Terminal Three.

Flybe will also fly into Terminal Three once the airline has resumed services from Manchester later in the year.

The remainder of Terminal Three, including the check-in hall and security, will reopen at a later stage as the airport ramps up capacity in line with the recovery of passenger numbers.

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.”
