Manchester Airport to close Terminal 2 until further notice from 2 September

By Andrew Pentol |

Manchester Airport is to close Terminal 2 once again from 2 September 2020.

Back in March, the airport consolidated flights into Terminal 1 after suspending flights to and from Terminals 2 and 3. All three terminals, however, were in operation as of last month with a number of stores trading again.

Karen Smart, Managing Director at Manchester Airport (pictured below) said: “Throughout the pandemic, we have worked closely with our airlines and retailers to align our operations with demand and to deliver the best possible customer experience.

“This has included introducing a number of new measures to keep passengers safe and give them the confidence to travel through Manchester Airport, in line with government guidance.”

ADAPTING OPERATIONS

She added: “Having re-opened Terminals Two and Three in July, we have continued to monitor the travel patterns of our airlines and passengers, in order to adapt our operations accordingly. With that in mind, we have taken the decision to close Terminal Two again from September 2.

“Such decisions are driven by our commitment to deliver the best possible airport experience to customers, colleagues and our airline and retail partners.”

All flights will operate from Terminal One and Terminal Three as of 2 September 2 and Terminal 2 will remain closed until further notice.

Smart concluded: “Passengers who were due to fly from or into Terminal Two after that date should contact their airlines to confirm which terminal their flight will be transferred to.

“Our Terminal Two car parks will also close effective September 2, although customers who have booked parking after this date will be able to transfer bookings to an alternative car park.”
