Security & FastTrack

 

Security Update

If you’re flying to the USA please ensure electrical devices are charged and capable of being switched on. Any passengers with specific queries about their individual flight should check with their airline for more detailed information.

At Manchester Airport, we make the safety and security of customers and staff our absolute priority. To make your journey as smooth as possible and avoid unnecessary delays, we ask that you pay special attention to our 4 step security procedure.

Electronics Ban – Inbound Flights

In line with the Government announcement regarding all UK airports, electronic items larger than 16 x 9.3 x 1.5 cm will not be allowed into the cabin of flights coming into Manchester Airport from:

  • Turkey
  • Egypt
  • Saudi Arabia

These items must go into the hold and passengers are advised to liaise with their airline on how to facilitate this.

This will only affect passengers flying into Manchester from these countries, and not any departing from here. It will however affect passengers’ return journey, when they come back into Manchester Airport.
