FAQs

A collection of FAQs to help our passengers and staff.

What precautionary measures are in place at Glasgow Airport?

We are continuing to follow the medical, clinically driven, advice from the relevant health authorities on what measures are required and effective to deal with COVID-19. This includes:

  • Promoting all of the latest advice on COVID-19 which has been supplied by Health Protection Scotland and Public Health England.
  • Installing hand sanitisers throughout the airport.
  • Enhancing our already thorough cleaning procedures with a specific focus on the regular cleaning of hard surfaces.

What's the risk of coronavirus for travellers?

There are some countries and areas where there's a higher chance of coming into contact with someone with COVID-19. The NHS has prepared the following advice for travelers

What should I do if I’ve arrived from a country with confirmed cases?

Any passenger arriving from an affected country should follow the advice of the UK Government which is available on their website. If you are at the airport and experiencing the symptoms of a cough, fever or shortness of breath please make yourself known to the nearest colleague who will be able to support you. If you are not at the airport, please call NHS on 111.

Will my flight be affected?

If you’re concerned about the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on your existing travel plans, please contact your airline for the latest flight information.

Should I wear a face mask?

The UK Government, via Public Health England (PHE), has advised that the wearing of face masks is not required at this time and is unlikely to be an effective prevention measure in many circumstances. There is no evidence of benefit to support the use of facemasks outside healthcare environments. Face masks may be advised for those diagnosed with or suspected to have COVID-19 to reduce the spread of infection.

Good hand and personal hygiene practices are seen as the most effective response to the virus with the Government advising that people should wash their hands often and for at least 20 seconds with soap, using warm water if available.

How can I prepare ahead of my trip?

If you are traveling soon and worried about how COVID-19 might affect your plans, please check ABTA’s latest advice here. You can also find more information for passengers and holidaymakers on the CAA website.
