Updated face covering guidance

Passengers and staff are required to wear a face covering in the terminal and on airport buses. Therefore, it is mandatory to wear face coverings at check-in, when going through security, in the departures lounge, at the gate to board your aircraft, onboard your aircraft, on all airport buses, during the arrivals process – including immigration, baggage reclaim and on our car park buses. Please see here for more details.

  • Children/people with disabilities including hidden disabilities may be exempt. Please see here for more details.
  • In all other indoor spaces, the airport strongly recommends the wearing of face coverings. 

It is mandatory on many airlines to wear a face covering, so passengers are advised to check this with their carrier before flying.
