Manchester airport is trialling a new system of pre-booked security time slots, in a bid to manage passenger volumes and avoid queues, as part of wider Covid-19 safety measures.
Travellers can now book 15-minute time slots online, allowing them “access to a dedicated lane straight to the security checkpoint”.
Whilst the booking of slots is free, they are available on a first-come-first-served basis at booking.manchesterairport.co.uk/security/dates.
If you arrive outside of the allotted time you will be directed through the usual channels.
Manchester Airport Group says that Manchester is the first UK airport to offer such a scheme, and if successful the group will look to roll it out at London Stansted and East Midlands.
