Flights and airlines
Air travel continues to be restricted due to COVID-19. Current Government advice is only to travel for essential journeys.
Local airports have introduced a series of measures to ensure passengers and staff are kept safe. Click on the links below to find out more.
Face Coverings and air travel
In line with Government requirements and other transport services passengers are required to wear a face covering at airports and during flights.
There are exemptions to these rules for disabled people who find wearing a face covering difficult or impossible. You can find out more about exemptions from the NI Direct website.
Your rights to assistance when travelling by air are still in place despite COVID-19. You should let the airline know about your requirements at the time of booking.
The Consumer Council Website
The Consumer Council has put together useful information and advice around air travel during COVID-19 including for anyone affected by flight or holiday cancellations.
