COVID-19 comments

Riga Airport delivers clear public information regarding the policies and behaviour required when departing or arriving. The airport management have developed a lively brand for COVID-19 guidelines which is featured at multiple touchpoints and is fully immersive. The use of varied bright colours and large logos means that guidance is not onerous and is well considered with the broader terminal décor and design. There are strict rules for entry into the terminal space, and this is controlled by security staff conducting ticket checks on the departure and arrival level. Despite the downturn in flight operations, the airport has maintained use of the entire terminal which means social distancing factors are managed well, and this is in addition to the use of floor and seat markers to guide customers here and reinforce the distancing advice. There are frequent hand sanitiser points throughout the airport, and all customer facing counters are fitted with screens to protect staff and customers. Airport cleanliness and maintenance is delivering a high standard during these times of coronavirus. COVID-19 safety rating places high importance on the implementation of face mask regulations and monitoring of social distance adherence amongst staff and customers, and how an airport applies these measures.
