San Carlo and Pot Kettle Black join Mancunian line-up at Manchester Airport

The new £1bn ‘super-terminal’ will also welcome two further airlines, as KLM and Air France become the latest to move to the facility

San Carlo, well known on the Manchester dining scene with several city centre venues, will open its very first airport location this Thursday 30th September.

The launch will be quickly followed by coffee artisans Pot Kettle Black, opening on Monday 4th October, which has fast become a firm favourite with Mancunians.

They join an impressive array of Mancunian-inspired options in the new terminal, from burger and shake chain Archie’s to local brewers Joseph Holt and Seven Bro7hers, which operate the Bridgewater Exchange and Amber Alehouse respectively.

And Manchester Airport’s new £1bn ‘super-terminal’ will also welcome two further airlines from today, as KLM and Air France become the latest to move to the facility.

KLM’s service to Amsterdam and Air France’s route to Paris (Charles de Gaulle) are the latest in a long line to have migrated to Terminal Two since its opening in mid-July.

More than a dozen airlines are now operating from the terminal, from long-haul carriers such as Singapore Airlines and Qatar Airways to sunseekers’ favourites such as and TUI.

From today, Tuesday 28th September, passengers travelling with KLM and Air France should now use Terminal Two.

Those with Manchester Airport car park or lounge bookings will have them moved across and customers will be notified accordingly.

With travel restrictions continuing to ease, further airlines are expected to move across to Terminal Two and these changes will be communicated appropriately.

Passengers can also keep an eye on the airport’s social media channels for the latest advice, guidance and information.

With the traffic light system for travel due to be scrapped from next week, airport bosses are hoping to see more passengers return to the skies.

COVID measures such as an enhanced cleaning regime will remain in place, however.

In addition to checking the latest airport information, passengers are also advised to keep abreast of Government restrictions and advice.

Although the system for international travel will be simplified from the start of next week, some rules will remain in place, and quarantine requirements may still apply if you are not double-vaccinated. See for further information.

Manchester Airport has extensive testing facilities on site, offering pre and post travel options.
