What you need to know
The global COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the way we live our lives, including how we travel. Please read this page carefully before you travel to see if your journey is allowed under the latest restrictions, and so you know what to expect when you get to the airport, including the measures we have put in place to keep you and our staff safe.
As the UK enters a third period of national lockdown, there are strict government restrictions on international travel. You can only currently travel abroad if you have a legally permitted reason to do so. For more information, see the current government guidance.
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.
