How You Can Help Us

Before you visit Avalon Airport:
  • If you are sick or have symptoms do not travel.
  • Please check DHHS website that you are acting within the latest DHHS guidelines by visiting the airport.
  • We recommend that you allow a little more time than usual when flying, given new expectations around physical distancing may impact timings.
As you enter the airport:
  • Condition of entry to Avalon Airport is that you wear a fitted face mask in accordance with DHHS regulations.
  • In order that we may assist with contact tracing if required, everyone must sign in when they enter Avalon Airport's terminal or any other buildings at the airport. This can be done by scanning the QR code on the signage at the entry with your phone. Customer Service Officers will be present to assist or add details for those without the capacity to scan.
  • Please use the supplied hand sanitiser as you enter the check in area and as often as you need thereafter.
At the airport:
  • You must physically distance where practical. Please maintain distance from staff, other passengers and people not in your travel group.
  • You must physically distance while waiting in any queues. This includes at check in, security, the cafe, or lining up to board your flight.
  • Furniture has been placed to allow for physical distancing. Please do not move it.
  • Please practise good hygiene by regularly washing your hands and sneezing or coughing into your elbow.
  • After sitting at a table please dispose of all your rubbish into bins provided before boarding/leaving.
  • Be patient. Note that any abusive behaviour towards staff or any person will not be tolerated. Please be kind to one another.
