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 are currently introducing a series of measures to ensure our leisure and business travellers enjoy a safe and pleasant experience while passing through the terminal.

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.

Southampton Airport continues to follow all UK 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 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.

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

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

  • 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.
