Manchester Airport issues Jet2 travel advice update for passengers

By Kate Lally & Kit Roberts

Manchester Airport has put out an update for passengers who are travelling with Jet2. The airport has seen massive queues and delays over the last few weeks.

Some passengers have said that they have "never seen the queues so bad" and have posted their travel troubles to social media to report the problems they have experienced. The main problems at Manchester Airport are still in the security section, with photos showing queues snaking out of the security area into the drop off area.

Staff at the airport are still advising passengers to arrive at the airport three hours before their flight is due to depart. Despite this attempt to reduce the queues, some passengers have still reported missing their flights due to the delays.

On May 12, the airport updated passengers who would be travelling with Jet2. In a tweet, the airport advised passengers to make sure they check which terminal they are departing from, the Liverpool ECHO reports.

The airport's Twitter account said: "Travelling with @jet2tweets from Manchester Airport? Check which terminal your flight departs from before you travel. All Jet2 flights to and from Bulgaria, France, Greece, Italy, Jersey and Madeira are now operating from T1. All other Jet2 flights remain in T2."

A raft of new staff have been drafted into the airport since the start of 2022 to try and deal with the massive surge in demand from passengers, with bosses saying last week that they'd already had 1,600 applicants for jobs at the airport in April alone. 550 new recruits have taken to the airport floor since January and 500 new starters are currently going through the vetting process and security training.

Ian Costigan, Interim Managing Director of Manchester Airport, said: "We want to make sure that customers get away on their travels, so everyone at Manchester Airport is focused on bringing in the extra resources we need to continue operating our full flight schedule.

"It is encouraging to see new staff joining us as a result of our ongoing recruitment drive, and we have seen security waiting times reduce in recent weeks. The last few weeks have been challenging but the team on the ground has done a great job in getting passengers through security more quickly, and I would like to thank all colleagues for their hard work and dedication.

“As we continue to recover, we are reminding customers to arrive at the airport three hours before their flight and to ensure they are familiar with all security rules. While the majority of people will get through security in less than 30 minutes, customers need to allow time for check-in and the possibility that security queues may be longer at peak times."
