Our Covid-19 measures

As Teesside International Airport opens up further to welcome holiday passengers through its doors once again, we want you to feel safe – and help to keep each other safe – as you travel through our terminal to your destination.

Here you will find information and useful links on the measures we have put in place at the airport, as well as requirements for travel.

Before You Travel/Book a Test:

If you are departing from the UK to a Green List destination, depending on where you are travelling to you may need to take a PCR test (book here) and produce a Fit to Fly certificate up to 48-72 hours before travelling to or arriving. Check the Government’s Foreign Travel Advice website.

Returning to the UK: All passengers returning from a Green List destination will be required to take a pre-departure test prior to boarding the aircraft to the UK and also undertake a PCR test on or before Day 2 of arrival back to UK.

A passenger Covid-19 testing facility is operational at Teesside Airport, administered by Recovery4Life, a local specialist testing, training and treatment service. To book a test, click here.

For more information on the requirements for visiting Amber or Red List countries, please visit the GOV.UK website.

At the Airport:

Clean your hands at the sanitiser stations provided.

While inside the terminal face coverings must be worn at all times, unless you are sitting down at a table for food and drink. If you do not have a face covering, you can collect one on arrival at the airport

Check in at one of our socially distanced desks or, if you don’t have hold luggage, check in online

Minimise what you carry to help us avoid hand searches during security checks to assist with social distancing

Sit two metres apart from passengers outside of your party in the departure lounge and pay attention to floor markings which encourage social distancing

Ensure you are wearing your mask when you board your flight.

Please note: If you are exempt from wearing a face covering, you will need to provide a medical certificate as evidence before departure, we recommend you contact your airline for further information on their guidelines.
