Manchester Airport has released all the information on what to expect from the airport to keep passengers safe.

The government announced that travel can commence from 55 countries without needing to quarantine upon returning to England.

This change will come into effect from July 10th, and the full list of travel corridors countries can be found here

The decision has led to the reopening of Terminal Two at Manchester Airport to accommodate the increase in passengers. 

All three of the terminals are now operating and helping people to travel safely with social distancing in place where possible. 

Any carriers that normally fly from Terminal Two such as Brussels Airlines, Ethiopian Airlines and Eurowings, will continue to operate from Terminal One throughout July, with the change back to Terminal Two yet to be confirmed.

Jet2.com flights are resuming from July 15th from Terminal One while Qatar Airways will move to Terminal Two on July 17th. 

TUI’s flights are resuming from July 11th at Terminal One and will move to Terminal Two on July 15th.

Terminal Three reopened on the 1st July and currently, British Airways, Air France, KLM, Ryanair, Loganair and Eastern Airways operate from there.

Passengers are advised to check which terminal they are flying from.

Manchester Airport has enhanced cleaning, put perspex screens in place, introduced temperature checks and is advising wearing face coverings. 

A handful of retail outlets have remained open with more set to open in the coming weeks. 

For everyone who usually stocks up their liquor cabinets from the airport, you’ll be pleased to know Bizaduty free is still open and Terminal Three Biza set to open on July 8th.

JD Sports (Terminal One) is set to open on July 15th alongside Cafe Nero and W H Smith in Terminal Two.  Playnation in Terminal One is set to open wc July 13th alongside Lion & Antelope airside in Terminal Three. 

Brad Miller, Chief Operating Officer at Manchester Airport, said: “As we continue to see the return of more airlines and destinations for our passengers to fly to, we remain fully committed to ensuring their safety throughout their airport journey.

“With the introduction of travel corridors, we envisage passenger numbers to continue to increase, which is why we are opening Terminal Two from 15th July, to maximise the airport space.

“These travel corridors will open up the chance for people to enjoy a well-earned break abroad and directly benefit the hundreds of thousands of people whose jobs depend on air travel for their livelihoods – whether they work in aviation or for the UK’s tourism and hospitality businesses, which can now welcome the first overseas visitors we will have seen for months.

“We have made our airport safe for our passengers and staff, and we have already started limited operations to many of these countries. With the quarantine requirement now removed, we look forward to safely welcoming back many more passengers in the coming weeks.

“I’d again like to thank all our passengers for continuing to abide by the measures in place during these uncertain times, and also thank all our staff who have gone above and beyond to ensure safe travel for all.”

In bad news for holidaymakers, the cost of getting a new passport is set to rise once again.

The Home Office has confirmed that passport fees are set to rise by more than 7% from tomorrow, under new proposals.

This means the cost of online applications within the UK, for anyone aged 16 and over, will increase from £82.50 to £88.50.

Children under 16 will also see an increase in passport costs, with the price rising to £57.50 from £53.50.


Overseas and postal applications will also rise at a similar level, with postal increasing to £100 for adults and £69 for children, and an online overseas application rising to £101 for adults and £65.50 for children.

The new charges will officially be in place from tomorrow, Thursday April 11th.

Last year passport fees increased by around 9%, back in February 2023.

The Home Office said in a statement: “The new fees will help ensure that income from these applications better meets the cost of delivering passport and associated operations, reducing reliance on funding from general taxation.


“The Government does not make any profit from the cost of passport applications.

“The fees contribute to the cost of processing passport applications, consular support overseas including for lost or stolen passports, and the cost of processing British citizens at UK borders.

“The increase will also help enable the Government to continue improving its services.”

If you’re dreaming of catching a jet plane to just about anywhere, well Wizz Air have launched a holiday deal where the mystery location isn’t revealed until you land.

The Hungarian airline will take a plane full of holiday hopefuls from London Gatwick for a four-day mystery getaway as part of its #LetsGetLostwithWIZZ campaign.

Those who win a ticket to the unknown location, will turn up to London Gatwick on March 7th to board a Wizz Air flight for ‘four days of fun, including cultural, culinary and adventure activities’ – it could turn out to be the trip of a lifetime!

To be in with a chance of winning a seat on the flight, UK residents can visit the Wizz Air’s Instagram page and follow the prompts on the Let’s Get Lost London pinned post.

“Entries close on February 22nd at 00.01am”, the low-cost airline says. 

The lucky chosen ones will be able to bring a plus one on the trip and winners will be contacted via Instagram.

In a post shared to its official Instagram page, the airline put: “It’s time to get onboard our latest venture to the unknown with Let’s Get Lost London, departing from London Gatwick to…

“Do this by the 22nd February and you could be in with a chance of departing with us on an exciting flight to the unknown.

“The trip will take place between 7th – 10th March. Open to UK residents only, please make sure you’re following WIZZ on Instagram and that your profile is public.”

If you’re wondering whether you’ll need your bathing suit, suncream, hiking boots, rain coat or winter woollies, don’t worry, the 35 lucky winners will be told the climate to pack for a few days before the trip.

No other clues will be given away until touch down in the unknown destination.

UK Wizz Air Managing Director, Marion Geoffroy said: “We love connecting our passengers to new countries, allowing them to meet new people and try new experiences. 

“Going on a flight to an unknown destination is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and we are pleased to be able to offer this to lucky winners here in the UK.

“Let’s Get Lost is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to our British passengers and we hope to continue serving them as they travel the world and make new memories.”

Wizz Air flies to more than 70 destinations from the UK. Last year, the most popular destinations among Brits included Morocco, Cyprus, Greece, Turkey and Spain.

It is unclear whether the airline will jet the 35 lucky ticket holders and plus ones off to one of its more popular destination choices, or whether it will choose to take them somewhere a little more alternative and secluded.
