Audit Summary

COVID-19 standards

There are no information guidelines for COVID-19 safe behaviour such as mask use or hand hygiene reminders. There are a few legacy physical distancing markers, and no encouragement for social distancing in the seating areas. The lack of facemask usage is very disappointing in all public areas, and this is not enforced. There are few hand sanitisers in the terminal and the ones available are of a very poor standard. The airport terminal cleanliness is unsatisfactory, and maintenance staff are not seen.
