How do I know if my flight is going ahead?
We recommend contacting your airline directly if you have any queries about your flights and/or booking.
Should I wear a facecover when I travel?
You should wear a face covering while travelling and these should be worn at all times whilst travelling through the Airport. Face masks are available from vending machines at the Airport for those who arrive without their own.
A face covering should cover your mouth and nose while allowing you to breathe comfortably. It is important to use face coverings properly and wash your hands before putting them on and after taking it off.
Some people may not be able to wear a face covering, for example young children, people with breathing difficulties and people whose disabilities makes it difficult for them to wear a face covering.
You should be prepared to remove your face covering if asked to do so by staff for the purposes of identification.
A face covering is not the same as the surgical masks or respirators used by healthcare and other workers as part of personal protective equipment (PPE). These should continue to be reserved for those who need them to protect against risks in their workplace, such as health and care workers, and those in industrial settings, like those exposed to dust hazards.
The evidence suggests that wearing a face covering does not protect you, but it may protect others if you are infected but have not yet developed symptoms.
Are the food, drink and shopping areas currently open at the airport?
A number of food, drink and retail areas are open at the Airport however their hours of operation can vary and are subject to change at short notice and like the High Street they are bound by Government legislation around closing times for restaurants, bars and cafes. In line with restrictions across the Liverpool City Region, alcohol consumption is currently only available when purchased with a main meal at a restaurant in the Departure Lounge.
A range of refreshments are also available at vending machines both by check-in and on the lower level of the Departure Lounge.
All shops have new measures in place for the health and safety of all passengers and employees.

To ensure the protection of their colleagues and customers, all Travelex UK stores are temporarily closed. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
