Terminal 2 temporary landside Multi-Faith Prayer Room moves

The second phase of Manchester Airport’s exciting Transformation Programme sees the refurbishment of the original Terminal 2 building. To facilitate this work, we have relocated the Terminal 2 Landside Multi-Faith Room to a new, temporary location. It is now located upstairs on Level 2, next to the T2 West Car Park exit and opposite Check in area F. We look forward to welcoming airport visitors and staff (of all faiths and none) to this new facility for quiet contemplation, meditation, reading and prayer. It is open 24/7 for your convenience.

The image below shows the location.

The Prayer Room will remain in its temporary location until we move to our new, permanent Chaplaincy Centre in 2025 when the Terminal 2 refurbishment is completed. Watch this space!

It was a great joy to welcome (back) the Abaana Choir, transiting from Belfast on their way home to Entebbe. The choir was previously here in January 2024. On both occasions, we – and all passengers who happened to be in the terminal at the time – were treated to an “impromptu concert” of gospel songs – stunning and completely free of charge!

The Chaplaincy, along with the Airport Care Team and airport staff assisted with their journey.
There was a particularly lovely moment in T2 when the terminal lights were turned the colour of the Ugandan flag.
We pray every blessing on their time in the UK and on those they have met and spent time with. May a spirit of infectious joy remain with them always!

BBC report – haj pilgrims 1024 958 chris.goswami@magairports.com

BBC report – haj pilgrims

BBC North West Tonight reports on the Hajj pilgrimage and the pilgrims flying from the Airport.

BBC North West sent its reporter and camera crew to the airport to better understand the ins and outs of the Haj Pilgrimage and what motivates Muslims to undertake this event. They conducted interviews with our chaplains Shurma and Faruk as well as a number of individual Muslims undertaking the journey, some for the first time, some after saving for many months, but all with a sense of excitement and anticipation.

You can see the report here.
