Greek carrier, Aegean Airlines is the latest airline to relocate into Terminal Two of Manchester Airport, with additional cafés and retailers also opening in the new ‘super-terminal’ as passenger numbers increase.
Aegean Airlines will become the ninth airline to operate from the ‘super-terminal’, offering services from Manchester Airport to Athens on a thrice-weekly basis beginning 27th July.
Passengers travelling with Aegean Airlines should now use Terminal Two; those with Manchester Airport car park or lounge bookings will have them moved across and customers will be notified accordingly.
As passenger footfall is forecast to increase over the summer, the terminal is also seeing more retailers and food and drink outlets open.
World Duty Free Express opened in Departures over the weekend, offering customers a quick and easy way to buy World Duty Free’s most popular products. The main World Duty Free unit, which has been operating since the new terminal opened its doors, remains available for those wishing to browse the full selection of the brand’s stock.
The new terminal’s varied offering of bars, restaurants and shopping has been well-received by passengers thus far. Popular Manchester brands such as Archie’s and the Amber Alehouse, in partnership with Seven Bro7hers, are complemented by well-known high street names including M&S and Costa Coffee.
Pret-a-Manger and Starbucks units are due to open in Arrivals in early August.
A refurbished Terminal Two opened at Manchester Airport on 14th July; Aegean Airlines will join Jet2.com, TUI, Singapore Airlines, Etihad Airways, Qatar Airways, Brussels Airlines, airBaltic and Ethiopian Airlines in moving operations to the new terminal.
