Manchester Airport Begins Phased Reopening Of Terminal Three

Manchester Airport has begun the staged reopening of Terminal Three.

It is now being used for arriving passengers travelling with a select number of airlines.

Those flying with the airlines listed below will continue to check-in and go through security in Terminal One, but when they return back to Manchester, they will arrive into Terminal Three.

While the two terminals are directly next to each other, passengers are advised to consider these changes when making drop-off, pick-up and parking arrangements.

British Airways
Eastern Airways
Iberia Express
Flybe will also fly into Terminal Three once the airline has resumed services from Manchester later in the year.

Passengers flying from today onwards with British Airways, Iberia Express, Ryanair and Vueling will be asked to use the shops, restaurants and boarding gates within Terminal Three and will be directed to these areas once they have passed through Terminal One security – the two terminals are linked airside, with signage in place to direct passengers.

Those flying with these airlines who have bookings for the Terminal One Escape Lounge have been contacted to advise them of the changes, and invited to cancel and rebook from Terminal Three with a discount code.

Passengers with Aurigny, Eastern Airlines and Loganair will continue to use the Terminal One facilities for outbound journeys, and will only use Terminal Three when arriving into Manchester.

Food, drink and retail options open in Terminal Three will include: Terminal Three Departure Lounge: Biza Duty Free, the Lion and Antelope, The Nook, Kiosco, Pork & Pickle, Costa Coffee, WH Smith, Boots.

Terminal Three Arrivals: Travelex and WH Smith. Operating hours for each unit will vary, but there will always be food and drink provision for passengers travelling through at any time of day.

Covid-19 measures that are still in place across Terminal One and Terminal Two will also be applied in Terminal Three, including an enhanced cleaning regime.

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.
