Manchester Airport closes terminal's 2 and 3 from Wednesday 25th.

One of the UK's major regional airports is having to close two terminals due to the downturn of passenger numbers as the coronavirus COVID-19 continues to increase across Europe and the World.

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 that traffic will decline further, the airport has taken the decision to operate from a single terminal,  closing two.

This will happen on Wednesday 25th 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 onwards.

Anyone due to return to Manchester Airport will arrive into Terminal One, regardless of the Terminal they originally departed from. Those due to collect passengers from the Airport should also be aware of this change.  In some instances, where people find themselves returning to a different Terminal from which they departed, and have a vehicle in one of Manchester Airport’s car parks, the airport will make the necessary arrangements for these customers to collect their vehicles.

Anyone who has booked car parking or lounge access for Terminals Two or Three, and will be travelling on or after 25th March, will be able to transfer their booking to Terminal One.

Those who have booked directly with us will be contacted proactively by email at the appropriate time. Those who have booked through a third party should contact the agent they used.

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.
