With Easter on the horizon, Manchester Airport is issuing travel advice to its 160,000 travellers who are set to depart this weekend at the start of what is expected to be its busiest year on record.
As the airport is set to be busier, passengers are reminded to allow extra time to complete their airport journey, including travelling to the airport, as roads can be busier over the Easter weekend.
Getting through the airport itself is also likely to be busy which means allowing plenty of time for check in and security. Passengers can ease the security process by removing gloves, scarves, coats and belts before entering the security hall, and having all their liquids, gels and pastes less than 100ml and in a clear plastic bag. Plastic bags are available free of charge from the airport.

As well as being a busy Easter, the summer is set to be a bumper one at Manchester Airport with a host of new destinations launching. One of these being Seattle, by Thomas Cook Airlines, which makes Manchester the only airport in the UK outside of London to offer this direct route.
