I heard the same but still not sure if all the T2 airlines are moving back to T2 on that date too? I keep on hearing that T3 will not be reopening ever again, FR will move to T1 with Easyjet, and everyone else is going to T2 while it is not that busy. Is there any truth to this? If so, then when will the likes of LH, EI, BA, KLM/AF... be moving to T2? Also isn't T1 going to be a little bit too big for just Ryanair and Easyjet throughout the day? However for the morning rush, T1 has 14 gates with no airbridges that FR and EZY can use, and Easyjet now and again uses gates 23, 25 and 27, but that still won't be enough for the morning wave. If I remember correctly, in 2019 EZY had 18-20 morning flights, all but one (BFS) of them based here overnight, while FR had 9 based here and a handful of unbound hot spins in the morning. So how will this work for example with them both ramping up operations now?

Terminal 3 stands 16 - 18 are now accessible from Terminal 1 as a passenger (maybe even more but haven’t been that far down as yet). They seem to have been permanently switched to become Terminal 1 stands.

In addition, in past years, EZY would tow aircraft from remote stands to the terminal once the earlier departures had pushed back. That with bussing passengers to remote stands then I’m sure EZY & RYR could fit at Terminal 1.

Jet2 move all ops to T2 on 14th July. TUI follow on 15th and Singapore on 17th.

Hope that helps.

Domestic flights depart using Gates 16-18, accessed via T1, but arrival pax are routed into T3 for baggage claim & exit. This comes as a surprise to many who expect to arrive into T1.
In the new T2 are there facilities for Domestic arrivals?

As far as I'm aware T2 does not have any domestic facility. That is (was) in the long-term plans.

I believe the 3rd or 4th pier to be built (depending on what plans they were working on) was to have a domestic arrival facility. Any further delevopment is highly likely to be delayed now until the current situation improves. EI Atlantic is to be T2 based and there is talk of co-locating all IAG airlines together (BA domestic), so there may be some solution being worked on.

A bus like other EI CTA arrivals?
Something could be in the offing as the BA lounge has been entirely stripped out.

The Escape lounge in T1 has now been made available to BA status card holders although it's not as good as the old BA lounge and is a fair walking distance from the gate.

I would expect in time, there'll be a joint IAG/Oneworld co-habiting lounge in T2 as that seems to be the plan in other countries.

At lease some lounge provision has been made, many European stations have noting, even when lounges are available to other airlines. T1 Escape to T3 is quite a hike - I can’t remember how get to T3 from T1, is it by turning left just before the walk-through duty free shop? The airside route has been closed for years, since Security at T1 was moved.

I imagine there will be some sort of branded lounge situation at T2, as you say. It could be BA branded and operated by a third party, which happens or might have one world/EI branding. EI are in an unusual situation, they are part of the one world JV, but not the alliance. Talk about confusing for customers.

Isn’t the Trans Atlantic Joint Venture more of a back office thing rather than something that is meant to be explicitly promoted to the customer?

As for terminal changes, things have probably changed after the last 18 months but the plan was that easyJet were to move to T2 in 2022.

I thought EasyJet liked it over at Pier B of T1? Unless there's been some plan that will mean T1 will now close earlier than planned? (I am aware Piers B and C are staying)

Thought the airport would've announced the opening of T2 themselves and there would be a bit more fanfare like there was for Pier 1

Hopefully we will see some good publicity on 14th July - the opening date - but there again we are talking about Manchester Airport, aren't we?

EasyJet like pier B for its ramp side efficiency, no more, no less. It is happy to use Pier C overnight but ideally not during the day given the inefficiency of airbridge but no opportunity to use rear doors too.

B pier was meant to remain in footprint only…I.e being rebuilt. One would assume that along with much of T1, B pier as it stands is approaching life expired.

Terminal 1

Can anyone explain to me, please, what is now going to happen to Terminal 1? As a (normally) regular flier with Swiss, I am always shocked at their behind the main check in “cupboard” they have as a check in area!
