We’re expecting the airport to be busier than it has been recently, and need your help in following guidelines to keep it running safely and smoothly.
Due to the airport environment, there are points in the passenger journey where social distancing is not always possible. That is why face coverings are mandatory at all times in the airport, unless you are exempt from wearing one – to reduce the risk of transmission. Please bring your own face covering from home, otherwise you will not be permitted to enter the terminals.
During busy periods you could be required to queue outside the terminal buildings, in order to facilitate at least 1 metre social distancing in indoor spaces. We advise you to wear warm clothing on the day of travel and to use a trolley for your luggage – this can also help with establishing distance.
As has been the case so far this year, only those travelling are permitted to enter the terminal buildings, unless you are helping someone who needs assistance. This is to ensure both colleagues and passengers can maintain a safe distance from others and can safely navigate the terminals.
We have enhanced cleaning measures in place, including implementing a specialist cleaning team, who ensure all key touchpoints have been coated in an antibacterial formula and all areas of the airport are regularly disinfected. You’ll see our dedicated marshals, recognisable by their pink tabards, who are responsible for ensuring both passengers and colleagues correctly wear face coverings and observe social distancing when possible.
Our safety measures have been recognised by the Airports Council International, accrediting that our airport facilities remain safe and the precautions we are taking will help reduce any risk to your health.
