Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What measures are you taking to ensure the safety of passengers? 

We have developed a range of hygiene and communication measures for the terminal to help keep our passengers safe.

These include signage and queuing markers to remind people of the importance of physical distancing where possible, with some seating removed or marked unavailable to ensure this occurs. Increased cleaning will continue in our terminal, with particular focus on high traffic touch points, while hand sanitisers are in place throughout the terminal.

We need our passengers and other customers to help us keep them safe as well. Please use online options to lower the risks, follow directions displayed on signage, don't travel if you are sick and download the COVIDSafe app.
