Crew accommodation no doubt, despite MAN not being a designated “red” point of entry, there will be requirements for secure accommodation of aircrew and such for stopovers from such destinations.

Air crew are exempt from any isolation requirements when operating. Including from red list countries.

Only UK resident aircrew are exempt. Crews who are not UK-residents are not, and still need to isolate in suitable accommodation.

The Emirates crew arriving at MAN can't go on a shopping trip to the Trafford Centre! They are only permitted to leave the hotel to got back to the airport to fly home.

Unsurprisingly, with the travel ban from NW England to Scotland, easyJet withdraws new services to Aberdeen & Edinburgh.

I suspect bookings were dire even before any announcement.. otherwise why can a route when travel ban in this scenario only likely to be temporary?

The route was only announced on 16th June- just 1 week ago. That's hardly enough time for the airline to even start to promote the new routes?

Perhaps they have taken a fresh look at the business rationale, and the travel ban has provided a convenient fig leaf of cover to retreat from something that looked like an incredibly bad idea to begin with. No such salvation from Nicola Sturgeon for the lunacy of the twice-weekly Liverpool-Bournemouth service though....

Hi there, are there any views on when Manchester may reopen its second runway? I completely understand that the current level of traffic doesn’t necessitate for it, but has there been any indication from the airport on what traffic level would lead them to reopen it?

Many thanks in advance

Not really this year flying to BOH may well be attractive for those not wishing to travel overseas. I think Easyjet have shown a bit of initiative .

Don't know about the runway but heard a rumour that T2 is opening in mid July.

Always a good sign is that the airport/ airline staff are slated to use Staff East again from 1st August. So moving out of mid-stay T1/T3 as passenger numbers increase again.

Some outlets in the new T2 have been hiring and Escape Lounge in T1 is also opening next week. Slowly but surely we will return to normality

Great to see the airport coming back to life.

New AirBaltic launched today as well to Latvia in a blaze of publicity.

Well I've rebooked the ABZ using the voucher they issued to me after cancelling last week. I've got £14 change left too. Fingers crossed for the EDI service. I'll rebook that as well if it does appear. Not hopeful though.
