This document contains the latest information about the protocols, preventative measures and changes adopted by UK airports in response to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

UK Airports

No matter your departure airport, you can rest assured that they are working alongside the UK government, health professionals and airlines to ensure the wellbeing of all those who cross the threshold. Best practice guidelines to the management of airline passengers and aviation personnel have also been released by EASA (European Union Aviation Safety Association) to encourage conformity of protocols across the region; after all international travel requires passage between countries.

Below we have listed some of the measures introduced, a link to each airport's dedicated Coronavirus (Covid-19) page and a video showing the transition of passengers from arrival to their departure gate. We will endeavour to keep this information up-to-date, with the latest edition published on Monday 08 June.

You can also read the government's latest advice for passengers here.

Measures adopted

  • Facemasks will be worn by all passenger facing staff. Passengers are also asked to adopt this measure with vending machines installed for the purchase of masks. At Manchester Airport gloves will also be required
  • Perspex screens have been installed at check-in desks
  • Enhanced cleaning throughout the terminal building
  • Hand sanitisers installed throughout the terminal building
  • Where an airport has more than one terminal, flights will be spread evenly to aid social distancing. Please note that we will advise your departure terminal on your travel documentation
  • London Heathrow Terminal Two and Manchester Airport are trialling temperature screening
  • Reduced shopping and eating outlets will be open. Currently at London Gatwick Airport only Boots (Pharmacy) is open in the South Terminal and at Heathrow Airport Boots and WH Smith's are open
  • Some airport lounges remain open with limited services, others have closed to guests
