As we begin to welcome passengers back to East Midlands Airport since the COVID-19 lockdown brought an abrupt halt to passenger air travel, we have been working hard to put measures in place to help make air travel safer for both passengers and 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.
Anyone flying through East Midlands Airport in the coming weeks and months will need to adhere to new guidance. So if you're looking to travel and want to know where you can travel right now, we have the answers.
We continue to provide a full Assisted Travel service to passengers but with additional measures in place to ensure a seamless and safe experience. These include:
The Passengers Services team wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), including face coverings, face visors and gloves while health guidance remains in place.
Questions: If you have further questions, please contact a member of the Passenger Services team by phone or by text on 0808 1697032. As we’re currently open only when flights are operating, please leave a message including your flight details and we will respond to you within 72 hours.
Bookings: Please note that we are unable to take direct bookings for Assisted Travel. This must be done via your airline prior to travelling.
All passengers arriving back into the UK must complete a passenger locator form.
Government guidance has been issued that requires all passengers arriving into the UK to provide contact details via a passenger locator form. This should be completed before you travel to the UK even if it is the return leg of your journey and you are a citizen or resident in the UK.
The form cannot be submitted until 48 hours before you’re due to arrive in the UK and must be completed even if you are travelling from a country which has a ‘travel corridor’. A list of countries with travel corridors can be found here.
Passengers travelling from a country with a travel corridor will not have to quarantine once the form is complete. Passengers travelling from a country without a travel corridor will have to complete a locator form and will be required to quarantine for 14 days.
You’ll need to show your completed form when you arrive at the UK border, either by printing a copy, or showing it on your phone.
The government will use this information to contact you if you or someone you’ve travelled with develops Coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms. They may also use this information to check that you’re self-isolating if you are required to do so (see above).
You may be fined up to £100 if you refuse to provide your contact details, or more if you break this rule more than once. You also may not be allowed to enter the UK (unless you’re either British or a UK resident).
