Travel requirements for your destination


Keeping you safe while travelling

Physical distancing - Physical distancing is required at the airport and while boarding. Each airport may have different rules so we ask you to follow all crew instructions.

Wearing face coverings - All passengers are required to wear a face-covering before reaching their boarding gate and on our flights. You are welcome to wear your own face-covering. We will also have masks available.

Cleanliness - High touch surfaces are cleaned regularly, and we take extra steps to ensure all our aircraft, lounges and airports are frequently cleaned. Hand sanitiser is readily available.
