Manchester Airport reopens new destinations

As Manchester Airport is now in one of its busiest months of the year, the Northern hub is updating customers on its latest developments.

Each week more and more flights are resuming from Manchester and following the recent change to travel to Spain, passengers are reminded to check the latest government information regarding travel corridors.

It is important to take account of the latest Foreign and Commonwealth Travel advice relating to any restrictions in your destination. 

In addition to the scores of the flights that have already re-started, this week sees the return of:

easyJet: Kefalonia, Funchal, Olbia, Tivat

Aegean Airlines: Athens

TAP Air Portugal: Lisbon

TUI: Bodrum, Chania, Skiathos, Santorini

With the government’s relaxation of quarantine and introduction of travel corridors, all passengers arriving into Manchester Airport need to be ready for UK Border control by completing a Passenger Locator Form. Upon arriving, they will need to show either a print out of the form or have it on their phone. 

With the UK government removing Spain from the travel corridors list, passengers should be aware that they now need to quarantine on return to the UK. Furthermore, due to the change in policy, some carriers have taken the decision to cancel flights to Spain and its islands, so passengers should check with their airline if they have any specific flight enquiries.

All three of Manchester Airport’s terminals are in operation, as more airlines resume services and retail outlets start to re-open. Passengers are advised to check which terminal they’re flying from before arriving at the airport, as some airlines are operating from different ones than they normally would.

The following airlines are moving to Terminal Two this month:

From August 1 - Eurowings, Air Malta, Ethiopian Airlines and Brussels Airlines

From August 5 - Etihad Airways

From August 8 - Iran Air

For the last two months the airport has introduced wearing face coverings, enhanced cleaning, Perspex screens, bookable security slots and temperature checks to keep all passengers and staff safe.

Karen Smart, managing director at Manchester Airport, said: “In what would normally be our busiest month of the year, it is pleasing to see routes are increasing each week, giving passengers who want to travel the choice and opportunity to do so. This is why we now have all three terminals in operation, to allow passengers to maintain and keep a safe distance while on-site.
