Commercial flights from Norwich Airport are now available to book once more, with KLM resuming daily flights to Amsterdam Schiphol from 3 August 2020, offering onward international connectivity.
TUI Tenerife returns in time for the winter season from 8 October 2020, whilst Loganair will increase the frequency of its Aberdeen route in August and recommence Edinburgh in September (dates TBC).
The first flight to recommence is to Bourgas, Bulgaria, operated by Balkan Holidays, scheduled for Thursday, 16 July 2020.
Norwich Airport has remained open for offshore helicopter flights, medical and military flights and General Aviation, whilst Loganair operated a reduced Aberdeen schedule. The airport has welcomed the return of commercial flying with proactive measures in place to ensure the safety and well-being of staff and passengers.
Some of the measures which are currently in place at the airport include:
- Enhanced cleaning in the terminal and throughout the site
- Installation of additional hand sanitiser units
- Installation of floor markings and signage (where feasible) so passengers can maintain a safe social distance
- Protective desk screens and reduced capacity in public areas
- Access and egress restrictions (one-way system)
- Displaying the latest public health information throughout the airport, including regular announcements
Richard Pace, Managing Director of Norwich Airport said: “The safety and well-being of our staff and passengers is our number one priority. We are continuing to rigorously implement all Government guidance and remain in regular contact with all relevant authorities. In the middle a difficult period for aviation and UK business as a whole, a return to commercial flying marks the first signs of recovery and gives a much-needed boost to regional and international air connectivity.”
