we are beginning to see the first signs of recovery in our sector

The arrival of Air France and KLM in the new Mancunian ‘super-terminal’ will also have allowed the airport management to welcome the good dynamics of air traffic. A trend that the relaxation of testing measures recently announced by the British government should reinforce, according to Karen Smart: ” With the number of passengers increasing every day, we are beginning to see the first signs of recovery in our sector, and we hope that the relaxation of certain restrictions for double-vaccinated travellers next week will allow this trend to continue “, says the airport manager.
