As ever, Airport Management are keen to get the message across to anyone departing from the Airport in the coming days, to allow plenty of time to pass through the terminal, as it is expected to be busy at peak times.

Preparations for the additional throughput have been underway for some time to make sure that passengers continue to have a great experience here, even when we are busier than usual."
