The airport remains open for essential travel.

Passengers should ensure their travel is in accordance with the essential travel guidance provided by the Scottish Government - please click here to view that guidance.

Please note - the airport cannot and will not make this decision for passengers.

Updates on travel requirements

The Scottish Government now requires passengers arriving directly into Scotland on an international flight (those outside the Common Travel Area which is made up of the UK, Ireland, the Isle of Man and Channel Islands) to ensure a number of things ahead of travel.

You must:

Managed isolation (quarantine hotel)

This was introduced at 0400 on February 15 2020. This is a Scottish Government requirement - the airport does not manage or control this policy.

It is important that passengers read and understand the guidance ahead of travel - that guidance can be read by clicking this link.

It is required for all passengers arriving into Scotland from international destinations outwith the Common Travel Area, but there is also a requirement to enter managed isolation if you are travelling to Scotland from the Republic of Ireland and have been in an acute risk country (a “red list” country) in the 10 days before your arrival.

There are some passengers who will be exempt from this rule and that list of exemptions can be found on the Scottish Government website.

Additional information and advice

As ever, we recommend all passengers continue to check with their airline for latest flight information and any specific travel requirements they have.

Different airlines will have different requirements, and these may include proof of a Covid negative PCR test or use of a disposable face-mask only onboard the flight.

It is very important that you check your airline's pre-travel requirements ahead of arriving at the airport to ensure you are informed and prepared.

Governments at home and abroad regularly review their travel policies, and so it is important to check any local rules or restrictions before you travel.

Travel and local levels

People living in Scotland will be aware of the Covid restrictions for local areas - these are controlled and managed by the Scottish Government.

You can find out the restriction level for your area by using the Scottish Government's postcode checker.
