Manchester Airport to close two terminals

Dan Whelan

The airport will operate from a single terminal in the face of reduced passenger numbers. 

The Government has advised against non-essential travel and many countries are closing their borders as the world attempts to contain the coronavirus outbreak. 

These measures have resulted in a sharp drop in the number of people taking flights and as of Wednesday next week, Manchester Airport will close terminals two and three in a response to this. 

A statement from Manchester Airport Group said: “Like all airports across the world, Manchester Airport has experienced a significant fall in passenger volumes as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.  

“Given this reduction in departing and arriving flights, and the likelihood traffic will decline further, we have taken the decision to work towards operating from a single terminal. 

“This will happen on Wednesday 25 March and all flights that were due to depart from Terminal Two and Terminal Three, will now do so from Terminal One.”

The XR folk and those selfish cyclist types will be delighted, they want to bring everything to a standstill.
