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 Southampton 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 website.

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.

COVID-19 FAQs

A collection of FAQs to help our passengers and staff.

What precautionary measures are in place at Southampton 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 current UK Government advice is that if you can, wear a face covering in enclosed public spaces where social distancing isn’t possible and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet. This is most relevant for short periods indoors in crowded areas, for example, on public transport or in some shops. From 15 June, you must wear a face covering on public transport. You should be prepared to remove your face covering if asked to do so by police officers and staff for the purposes of identification.

At Southampton Airport we are asking passengers to wear facial coverings when travelling through the terminal and to observe physical distancing whenever it is practical to do so.

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.

If you do not wish to travel due to a pre-existing condition, please contact your airline or if your doctor has recommended you not to travel please contact your travel insurance company.
