Re-opening The Second Runway At Manchester International Airport

The reopening of Terminal 3 at Manchester Airport will take place in stages, according to the airport. Initially, the terminal will be utilized for incoming passengers traveling with a limited number of airlines, as part of the implementation plan. Passengers travelling with Aurigny, British Airways, Eastern Airways, Iberia Express, Loganair, Ryanair, and Vueling will continue to check-in and go through security at terminal one, but will arrive at terminal three upon returning to Manchester.

Despite the fact that the two terminals are right across the street from one another, travellers are urged to take these differences into consideration while making arrangements for drop-off, pick-up, and parking. As soon as Flybe restarts service from Manchester later this year, it will be allowed to fly into the third terminal as well as the other two.

The airport plans to reopen its second runway on Tuesday in order to accommodate the increased number of airplane movements. For the first several months, it will only be open for a restricted number of hours each day, with the hours progressively increasing as demand continues to grow.

Later on, the remainder of terminal three, which includes the check-in hall and security, will be reopened to the general public. This is due to the fact that the airport is expanding its capacity to accommodate more passengers as the number of passengers begins to climb.

“After over two years of closure, it is a significant step forward on the path to recovery to be able to partly reopen terminal three and restart operations from both runways,” said Karen Smart, managing director of Manchester Airport.

According to the airline, “we made this choice because we have seen a rise in passenger numbers since the Covid-19 limitations were released, and we expect this trend to continue throughout the summer.” “Those who are affected by these changes should make certain that they keep this in mind while making travel plans.”
