Two airlines have been added to Manchester Airport’s new ‘super terminal’ and will be launching their services from Tuesday.

KLM and Air France will be flying from and in to Terminal 2 from Tuesday September 28 and they will be the latest in a long line to have migrated to Terminal Two since its opening in mid-July.

Passengers travelling with KLM and Air France should use Terminal 2 from Tuesday. Those with Manchester Airport car park or lounge bookings will have them moved across and customers will be notified accordingly.

The Dutch and French flag carriers will be among more than a dozen airlines that are now operating from the terminal, including Qatar Airways, Singapore Airlines, and TUI.

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

Covid measures such as an enhanced cleaning regime will remain in place for the safety of staff and colleagues.

Karen Smart, Managing Director of Manchester Airport, said: “It is brilliant to see yet more valued airline partners serving passengers through our new state-of-the-art facility and I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome KLM and Air France to Terminal Two.

“Feedback for the new terminal has so far been incredibly positive and we cannot wait for more and more passengers to experience it.

“With passenger numbers rising each day, we are starting to see the green shoots of recovery in our sector, and we hope that the easing of some restrictions for double-vaccinated travellers next week will help ensure that trend continues.

“Nevertheless, we are conscious of the need to provide a Covid-safe environment for passengers and colleagues so that they can feel safe and reassured when travelling through our airport."
