To meet the increased demand following the easing of travel restrictions, Manchester Airport has announced that Terminal Three will fully re-open on 22nd April.

The terminal has been partially re-opened since 27th March.

All passengers flying with Aurigny, British Airways, Eastern Airways, Iberia Express, Loganair, Ryanair and Vueling should now check in at the Terminal Three entrance.

All arrivals in the airport will also exit from the Terminal Three building.

A range of food and drink outlets, and shops will also be open in Terminal Three from the 22nd April.

These include WHSmiths and Travelex in Arrivals (ground level) and Caffe Nero in Check-in (upper level).

Boots, Costa, WHSmith, Duty Free, Lion & Antelope, Pork & Pickle, KFC, Nook and Kiosco will also be open.

There have been weeks of chaos for travellers at Manchester Aiport, who have faced long delays and lengthy queues to reach check-in, security and luggage collection.

The CEO of Manchester Airports Group, Charlie Cornish, recently apologised to passengers and explained the difficulties the airport has faced over recent weeks, as well as issuing advice to travellers.

In addition to arriving three hours before their flight, passengers should also refamiliarise themselves with the rules for security, says the airport.

This includes having large electronic items out and ensuring all liquids, gels and pastes are under 100ml and in a clear re-sealable bag.

Even though the UK government has now scrapped Covid-19 travel restrictions, passengers are still reminded to check the advice for the country they are travelling to in advance of departure.

Passengers with specific queries about their flights should contact their airline directly.

As part of its recovery hundreds of jobs are still available across the airport site to meet the increased passenger demand. To check out the jobs on offer with Manchester Airport, visit
