Manchester airport has announced plans to reopen its Terminal 3 at the end of this month.

The terminal has been closed for large parts of the last two years as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

This page on the airport’s website confirms that Terminal 3 will reopen on March 27, to coincide with the start of the summer schedules, and in preparation for Easter.

Meanwhile this page lists six airlines which will move across to Terminal 3 from that date: Aurigny Airline, Blue Islands, British Airways, Eastern Airways, Loganair and Ryanair.

Customers who have booked car parking or lounge access directly through the airport and who now need to change these as a result of the terminal moves, can do so by amending their existing booking online. Those who have booked through a third party will need to contact them.

There have been reports of major delays at Manchester airport’s security and passport control in recent weeks, with a spokesperson citing “a greater number of passengers than expected”.

Manchester Evening News reports that firefighters have been asked to work on baggage belts, amid a shortage of staff at the airport.
