The Dutch and French flag carriers will not be the only new additions to the terminal this week, with Manchester-based Italian restaurant San Carlo opening its much-anticipated new venue in departures on Thursday.

Also, with the traffic light system for travel due to be scrapped from next week, airport bosses are hoping to see more passengers return to the skies. Covid measures such as an enhanced cleaning regime will remain in place for the safety of staff and colleagues, however.

KLM’s service to Amsterdam and Air France’s route to Paris (Charles de Gaulle) will be the latest in a long line to have migrated to Terminal Two since its opening in mid-July.

More than a dozen airlines are now operating from the terminal, from long-haul carriers such as Singapore Airlines and Qatar Airways to sunseekers’ favourites such as and TUI.

From tomorrow passengers travelling with KLM and Air France 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.

With travel restrictions continuing to ease, further airlines are expected to move across to Terminal Two and these changes will be communicated appropriately. Passengers can also keep an eye on the airport’s social media channels for the latest advice, guidance and information.

San Carlo, well known on the Manchester dining scene with several city centre venues, opens its very first airport location this Thursday, quickly followed by coffee artisans Pot Kettle Black on Monday 4th October, which has fast become a firm favourite with Mancunians.

They join an impressive array of Mancunian-inspired options in the new terminal, from trendy burger and shake chain Archie’s to local brewers Joseph Holt and Seven Bro7hers, which operate the Bridgewater Exchange and Amber Alehouse respectively.
