COVID-19 related passenger information - LJLA has been recognised internationally for its Covid-secure measures
Liverpool John Lennon Airport is delighted to welcome back passengers, perhaps for the first time in a while, with airline services now operating to a host of destinations.
The safety and security of all passengers and employees has always been the Airport’s top priority and throughout the covid pandemic staff have continued to ensure that the passenger journey is as easy and safe as possible.
Passengers can continue to take advantage of Liverpool’s Faster, Easier Friendlier experience, whilst reassured that comprehensive measures remain in place to reduce the risk of infection in line with the latest Government guidance.
The Airport has also been recognised internationally for the measures it has put in place to provide a Covid-secure operation to protect its passengers and employees. Having worked closely with the UK Civil Aviation Authority and Public Health England, LJLA is one of only a handful of UK airports to have implemented the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) guidance for air travel through the COVID-19 public health crisis (see related Airport News story).
PLEASE NOTE Following the easing of covid related restrictions, passengers are encouraged to wear face coverings in the terminal building though this is no longer mandated in line with Government guidance, however we ask that passengers support us in wearing face coverings through our close contact areas such as security. Passengers should continue to sanitise their hands using the hand sanitisers that are located throughout the terminal.
We are mandated by the Department for Transport to maintain mask wearing and social distancing on arrival points so please continue to wear masks and respect social distancing on arrival to Liverpool.
Airlines have their own requirements and all passengers are advised to check with their airline as to what covid secure measures and restrictions are in place on board their aircraft.
In order to keep you safe we might be a little slower than normal in places like check in and security, therefore it's more important than ever to arrive at least 2 hours before your flight departs.
