Passenger Information - Coronavirus

Covid-19 Information

Updated 06 August 2021

As scheduled flights and passenger numbers increase, and travel restrictions are relaxed, we have introduced additional mitigation measures to help ensure passenger and staff safety.

Our airport teams will continue to follow a comprehensive series of mitigation measures including effective passenger management, enhanced cleaning programmes, the use of sanitiser and a broad range of PPE.

The safety and wellbeing of our passengers and staff remains our upmost priority.  It remains compulsory for anyone travelling through our terminal buildings to wear a face covering at all times.  Although, from Monday 09 August, it is no longer a legal requirement to adhere to physical distancing, we are continuing to advise visitors to our airports to keep a safe distance from others wherever possible to minimise any risk to passengers, visitors and our staff.

We continue to follow the latest guidance from the Scottish Government and Health Protection Scotland - you can view the latest guidance on travel and transport on the Scottish Government website

If you are planning to travel abroad, we recommend that you check the latest Scottish Government international travel advice.

Travel queries for our airports are answered in our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section. 

In line with Scottish Government guidance, those travelling to a Scottish Island are encouraged to take two rapid lateral flow tests prior to departure.  You can order lateral flow testing kits to your home and are advised to take the first test three days before departure and the second on the day of departure. 

This is a voluntary programme that will help minimise the risk of spreading Covid into island communities.  Further information for getting tested in Scotland can be found on the Scottish Government website.
