Covid-19 Updates and Advice

Help Us Help You

Birmingham Airport remains open and is operating safely for those currently able to travel. 

Testing and travel

We advise passengers due to travel to check if there are any rules or restrictions at the arrival point destination with your airline or tour operator. Many countries require you to carry out a test before arriving in the country or have local restrictions in place which you may wish to be aware of before you leave home. The types of test and the timing required to take the test before departure vary by destination. Please ensure that you confirm the type of test required before booking a test. 

Please read the UK Government advice regarding international travel here. If you are concerned about your booking, please contact your airline or operator directly.  

If you need to take a Covid-19 test to facilitate travelling to another country, you should not use the NHS testing service. You can find a list of Government approved private providers for Covid-19 testing here.

Test to Release - International Travel 

Passengers arriving into England from the 15th December can reduce the quarantine period from non-exempt countries by taking a private Covid-19 test. If a test taken on day five after arrival proves negative, passengers can unlock themselves early from the 10 day quarantine. This means that customers can now book with confidence for the festive season and make plans for their 2021 holidays and business trips without quarantine concerns on their return.
