COVID-19 Rating

Edinburgh Airport has taken significant steps to ensure the safety and wellbeing of passengers, and this is encapsulated in their FlySafe initiative. The airport has invested significantly in floor-path signage and one way systems which are clear and intuitive for the end user with additional well-marked hand sanitising points prior to entering the terminal. The thematic colour systems ensure appropriate spacing between passengers, whilst additional infrastructure changes at check-in ensure a streamlined bag-drop and self-service approach to check-in procedures. Staff discipline and adherence to PPE requirements are rated at a high standard, whilst the limited concession provision in the airport have taken appropriate precautions. The airport has adjacent Fit to Fly PCR testing facilities for additional convenience to passengers who require this to fly.
