Airport reveals final terminal revamp

MANCHESTER Airport has unveiled the final stages of its major terminal redevelopment project. 

Following in the footsteps of Terminals 1 and 2, Terminal 3 has been given a makeover with passengers deciding what improvements were needed.

The changes were made after passenger survey scores for Terminal 3 dropped following the improvement of Terminals 1 and 2. The top five things that passengers wanted were: better wayfinding, more seats in the departure area, more flight information screens, an improved security area with more lanes open and better retail and catering.

Passenger feedback will continue to be part of our focus on creating a great experience for travellers through Manchester Airport."

Manchester Airport’s managing director, Andrew Harrison, said: “Passengers travelling through Terminal 3 have told us that they think Terminal 3 could be improved which is why we have invested in the departure lounge.

"Although this work addresses the main five areas of concern for our passengers, we know that there’s more to do. Passenger feedback will continue to be part of our focus on creating a great experience for travellers through Manchester Airport.”

More than £2m has been invested in Terminal 3’s redesign in addition to the £80m spent redeveloping Terminals 1 and 2 since 2007.

The Terminal 3 work includes the modernisation of flight information screens with the introduction of several plasma screens, clearer wayfinding signage, replacement flooring tiles on the upper level, plus the creation of four brand new shops and one new catering unit on the upper level.

Trattoria Milano, operated by HMSHost, part of Autogrill Group, is making its debut at Manchester Airport.  Trattoria Milano offers a variety of freshly made paninis, pastas, salads, and handmade pizzas.

The four new shops are Dixons Travel, Rolling Luggage, Swatch and Tie Rack. Costa Coffee will also be getting a new image to creating a relaxing area in the corner of the departure lounge later in the year.

Terminal 3 was originally opened  in 1995 and is the newest of Manchester Airport’s three terminals.
