What you need to know
The UK government's announcement of a third England-wide lockdown means that international travel is once again restricted to those who have a legally permitted reason, such as for essential work. At East Midlands Airport, we have been working hard to put measures in place to help make air travel safer for those passengers still permitted to travel, and for airport staff.
We continue to follow guidance from Public Health England and their advice will determine what further steps may be needed, should circumstances change in the future. For more information, see the latest government guidance on travel restrictions.
From March 11, the two test package that all UK arrivals must book prior to travel can now be taken at the airport testing facility.
Getting a test administered by a medical practitioner reduces the risk of an inconclusive test result and of tests being delayed in the post, giving you the best chance of actually leaving quarantine on Day 10.
From March 8, all passengers travelling internationally must carry a new Government Declaration Form, stating the reason for travel abroad and setting out that their trip is permitted under the stay-at-home restrictions.
Airlines will be checking the forms have been completed before boarding, and passengers who do not have a valid form may be denied access to their booked service.
