After reopening the terminal earlier in mid-July, the airport has not seen a sufficient enough return to passenger numbers to warrant keeping all three terminals open.

“Having re-opened Terminals Two and Three in July, we have continued to monitor the travel patterns of our airlines and passengers, in order to adapt our operations accordingly. With that in mind, we have taken the decision to close Terminal Two again from September 2″, said Karen Smart, Manchester Airport’s managing director, in a statement, as reports Business Traveller.

The move primarily affects passengers who have booked tickets on flights with Air Malta, Brussels Airlines, Ethiopian Airlines, Eurowings, Iran Air, Qatar Airways and TUI. As of 2 September, passengers should ignore any prior travel information from they may have received from the airline and proceed to depart from Terminal 1.
