Consult the limitations established by each Community and Autonomous City on the website that the Ministry of Health has provided for this purpose:

Development of the State of Alarm in the Autonomous Communities

  • Bear in mind that only passengers can access the airport terminal.
  • For reasons of public health and safety, the entrance of companions to airport facilities is forbidden. Only passengers with a boarding pass, companions in justified cases (unaccompanied minors or people with disabilities and PMR) and workers may access .
  • Wait outside while maintaining the safe distance. If you go in a private vehicle, we recommend waiting in the parking lot.
  • Do not come to the airport if you have any of the following symptoms: fever, cough, difficulty in breathing or feeling short of breath. 
  • A facemask covering the nose and mouth is compulsory for people over six years old (masks with exhalation valvule are not allowed).
  • Make sure you have enough facemasks and hand sanitiser for your trip. Unless the instructions state otherwise, you should change your mask every four hours or sooner if it gets wet. 
  • Carefully read the health leaflets and materials provided by your airline.  
  • Check the health control requirements and entry documents for the country you are travelling to. 
  • Check all the information about the airport. Some terminals are out of service and some shops and eateries are closed.

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.
  • 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.
  • Keep a safe distance in the boarding queue and respect the signs.

Throughout the airport

  • 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 (masks with exhalation valve are not allowed). 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.

Health Check
