On arrival
  • Bear in mind that entry to the terminal building is forbidden for anyone who is not travelling. Only passengers and people accompanying a passenger who needs assistance (people with reduced mobility or unaccompanied children) can enter the airport terminal. Companions with private vehicles must wait in the car park.
Check-in
  • Aena has stepped up cleaning protocols in check-in areas and counters have been fitted with protective screens.
  • Most airlines have placed restrictions on hand luggage in the cabin. Check with your airline for the check-in policy.
  • Get to the airport in time to go through check-in and security screening. This may take longer than usual.
Security controls
  • Minimise contact with surfaces and objects in the airport and always wear your facemask.
Boarding
  • Keep a safe distance in the boarding queue and respect the signs.
  • Please note that if you do not follow the stipulated health and safety measures you may be denied boarding.
  • Your airline will provide you with information about preventive measures during the flight.
  • Wash your hands often with your sanitiser, cough into the crook of your elbow and always wear your facemask. Remember to change it every four hours.
  • Watch the cabin staff safety demonstration for specific instructions for your flight.
  • Use the individual air supply nozzles as little as possible. Many airlines have HEPA filters which allow exceptional cleaning of the air.
  • If occupancy permits, airlines try to keep a distance between passengers who are not family or travelling together. If this is not possible, health and safety measures will be stepped up.

If the passenger is a minor or a person with a recognised  intellectual disability their tutor may fill in the form and will be responsible for the veracity of the information.
