It is your responsibility to check you are not only booking the correct COVID test but also ensure you leave enough time to get the results before you fly. The COVID testing service is operated by TAC Healthcare Group Ltd and Glasgow Airport is not responsible for any results of testing. Please check the link below to check which test you require for the destination you are flying to.

 

These tests are not Day 2 or Day 8 tests and you cannot use the airport to book return tests. You must book your testing kit using the CTM Booking Portal – any other type of testing kit, such as free NHS kits or those sold by private businesses, cannot be used for these tests.

Helping each other to travel safely

Together with the wider industry, we are working hard and have committed significant investment towards ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our passengers and staff.

We have introduced a series of measures to ensure our leisure and business travellers enjoy a safe and pleasant experience while passing through the terminal.

It is compulsory for passengers arriving and travelling through the terminal to wear facial coverings at all times and to respect physical distancing. We have introduced markers across the terminal to help support passengers to maintain the correct distance where it is possible to do so.

If you require special assistance whilst at the airport, please check the Special Assistance section for any changes that may affect your journey at the airport due to additional COVID-19 measures.

Glasgow Airport continues to follow all UK and Scottish Government guidance and we remain in regular contact with the relevant health authorities with regards to the latest developments on Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Measures we're taking to keep you safe

We created this page for our passengers and colleagues who may have concerns about COVID-19 and their travel plans. The information has been prepared based on, and following, the advice of Heath Protection Scotland, Public Health England and the UK Government who we are in contact with on a regular basis. 

We would urge passengers travelling through Glasgow Airport to make themselves aware of the most recent government guidance, which can be found here. The latest travel advice can be found on the Foreign and Commonwealth office.

Simple steps to avoid catching or spreading COVID-19 include:

  • Wearing protective facial coverings and those who don’t have will be able to access them in the terminal.
  • Anyone who is experiencing Coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms or feeling unwell should not travel to the airport.
  • Washing hands with soap and water often and for at least 20 seconds
  • Always wash your hands when you get home or into work
  • Use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • Put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards
  • Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell

Passengers arriving and travelling through the terminal are asked to respect physical distancing.

We have introduced markers across the terminal to help support passengers to maintain the correct distance where it is possible to do so.

  • All staff working in the terminal and interacting with passengers will wear personal protective equipment (PPE)

  • Protective screening has been installed in key areas of the airport such as our check-in and security halls
  • Hand sanitiser dispensers have been installed across the entire airport and all passengers and staff are encouraged to use them as frequently as possible as they pass through the terminal
  • Our already thorough cleaning procedures have been enhanced with a specific focus on the regular cleaning and disinfecting of all hard surfaces

  • Additional measures include regular use of electrostatic fogging machines proven to disinfect surfaces within two minutes
  • Passenger touchpoints are being treated with an advanced long-lasting antimicrobial protection surface bonding solution

  • While all our trollies are subject to the above-enhanced cleaning measures frequently, self-cleaning stations have been set up in our domestic and international baggage halls

Additional measures

All passengers should arrive at the airport wearing protective facial coverings and those who don’t will be able to access them in the terminal. It is important to stress that anyone who is experiencing Coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms or feeling unwell should not travel to the airport. Posters and signage explaining these additional measures are in place throughout the terminal.

Booking & Product updates

With increasing news coverage around the spread of Coronavirus, we’ve been working with our booking partner NCP (National Car Parks) to provide you with information around refunds and cancellation terms for any existing parking and lounge bookings. 

From 13th March 2020, the following terms apply to existing bookings regardless of whether your travel has been cancelled by your airline, tour operator or as a result of you wishing to change your travel plans.

Our contact centre is currently experiencing high volumes of calls. Please avoid calling or emailing unless you are due to travel in the next 72 hours. We recommend that you follow the advice below as the team are having to prioritise customers whose immediate travel plans are now impacted.  

Flexible product booking

If you’ve pre-booked parking on a flexible product, you can cancel and get a refund, or amend your booking online as part of the terms of the product you’ve booked. This can be completed online up to 2 hours before your arrival date into the car park. Please visit the manage my booking section on the Glasgow Airport website or, visit the website you booked through and cancel or amend once you’ve logged into your booking.

If you’ve prebooked a lounge on a flexible product, you can cancel and get a refund, or amend your booking online as part of the terms of the product you’ve booked. This can be completed online up to two hours before your arrival date into the lounge. Please visit the manage my booking section on the Glasgow Airport website or, visit the website you booked through and cancel or amend once you’ve logged into your booking.

Non-flexible product booking

If you’ve pre-booked parking on a non-flexible product and you wish to amend or cancel your booking, we can issue you with a promo code to the full value of your booking which you can use to book parking for a future date. The promo code will be valid for 12 months from the date of issue. To request your promo code, please email us at bookingenquiries@ncp.co.uk with your booking reference number and contact details and we’ll respond to you as soon as possible.

If you’ve prebooked a lounge on a non-flexible product and you wish to amend or cancel your booking, we can issue you with a promo code to the full value of your booking. If you booked a lounge bundled with a non-flex parking product, we will issue a promo code equal to the total value of the booking. As an example, if the current booking is £40 parking + £20 lounge we will give a promo code to the value of £60. When you redeem the promo code you may wish to use the full value towards parking only or a combination of parking and lounge. The promo code will be valid for 12 months from the date of issue. To request your promo code, please email us at bookingenquiries@ncp.co.uk with your booking reference number and contact details and we’ll respond to you as soon as possible.
