RBS has advised staff to work from home, where possible, from Monday. As we used to refer to the MAN-EDI service as the RBS (or NatWest) shuttle when I was working for them, that decision will impact on the new Loganair service - when it starts.

Just checked a 2 week car park price for T3 in April and still not competitive
Would have thought with the huge downturn in flights,some attempt to attract extra business with some favourable parking deals might be an idea,but not so far.

Have just phoned work and it seems the Evenin News maybe a tad premature with its announcements, staff have been told bugger all as usual.

Think this is more to do with Handling Agents.

Some Swissport staff have been told not to come in and given 21 days UPL

No, the announcement is by MAG and affects Manchester, Stansted and East Midlands. They are bringing in Ďenforced annual leave, reduced working hours, temporary pay cuts and temporary lay-offsí according to Business Live and quoting Charlie Cornish the Group CEO.

Another impact is a freeze on recruitment and a freeze on capital expenditure - so possibly implications for the next phases of the T2 redevelopment.

Rumours of consolidating terminals, due to a significant amount of flights being cancelled. Iíve heard itís been put on the table of moving all T2 flights over to T1.

Already reported elsewhere, but also as a rumour. It would however make sense in the present climate.

Runway 2 closed UFN due lack of demand. Staff South and Staff East both closing. All staff to park in Multi Storeys by the terminals.

Scottie Dog 17th Mar 2020 22:36

No NOTAM issued at this time.

Staff South can still be used but there's no shuttle bus. Some people walk to to West gate security. Its also open for Cargo Centre staff.

From Emirates:

Quote:
Emiratesí flights to London Heathrow will be reduced to two flights a day, while Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham will be served with one flight a day from 25 March to 30 June, 2020.

These destinations will all be served by Boeing 777s. The airline will also temporarily suspend its fights to Newcastle, London Stansted, London Gatwick and Edinburgh over the same period.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused. We continue to monitor the situation closely, and look forward to resuming normal operations when feasible.

Cathay Pacific to reduce passenger capacity by 96% in April and May

Friday, March 20, 2020 — Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon will reduce capacity by 96% across our passenger network in April and May in light of the severe drop in demand due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and multiple government travel restrictions that form part of the global health response plan.

As previously announced, Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon intend to operate a bare skeleton passenger flight schedule in April and May, though our freighter capacity remains intact.

Our ability to maintain even this skeleton schedule will depend on whether more travel restrictions are imposed by governments around the world which will further dampen passenger demand.

Cathay Pacific will operate three flights per week to 12 destinations: London (Heathrow), Los Angeles, Vancouver, Tokyo (Narita), Taipei, New Delhi, Bangkok, Jakarta, Manila, Ho Chi Minh City, Singapore and Sydney.

Cathay Dragon will operate three flights per week to 3 destinations: Beijing, Shanghai (Pudong), and Kuala Lumpur.

Last flight to MAN 3rd April :(

Thanks Spanners. It'll be very strange until normal(ish) service is restored.

Terminal Closures
 
It seems like Manchester Airport is following suit with other airports in terminal closures.
