Safety requirements at the airport and on board aircraft
The area of departing flights at the airport has been enclosed. We ask only those people to come to the airport, who are either taking a flight or coming from a flight. There is a dispersion requirement applied at the airport – we ask passengers to keep distance from each other. Disinfectants are available everywhere at the terminal.
Wearing a mask at the airport is recommended in cases where the dispersion requirement cannot be ensured (e.g., in security check).
The passenger terminal is cleaned more often and the frequently used surfaces are covered with a nanotechnology based catalytic coating. Catalytic cover disinfects the surfaces continuously, using the light available in the room. This ensures the hygiene of the surfaces also between cleaning times.
We perform static disinfecting of upholstered furniture and carpeting, which is faster and more efficient than other methods, as the electro-statically powered particles are finer and the disinfectant spreads better also into hidden places.
We were installing UV light based air purifying units into the security zone ventilation system, which sterilise and clean the air of microorganisms (such as viruses and bacteria).
Hand disinfectants have been placed also in the terminal’s public and closed zones. Personal protective equipment and information on the prevention of virus have been distributed to the airport employees. To protect the passengers and employees, protective glass has been mounted to several service counters.
The passenger terminal area has been enclosed and we want the passengers and employees to have the possibility of keeping the 2 m distance and avoid unnecessary contacts. Accordingly, we advice all people who have come to see off or pick up the passengers, to say their goodbyes and welcome outside the terminal and not to enter the premises of the passenger terminal.
We ask all the passengers to perform the check-in online. This can be done on the homepage of your airline. If this is not possible or you need to drop of your baggage, we ask you to take sufficient time and follow the dispersion requirement in the check-in area and in queues.
To protect the passengers and employees, protective glass has been mounted to check-in counters.
As everywhere else, the dispersion requirement applies also in security check. For that, only a limited number of people is allowed to the security check area at a time, which is why the security check could take more time. Please make sure to arrive at the airport 2 hours before the departure.
To protect the passengers and employees, the security officers wear personal protective equipment.
The temperature of passengers is not taken at Tallinn Airport. Also, no health checks are made. We would still like to stress that one should not come to the airport with symptoms of an illness or when sick, as this way you will put the health of airport employees and other passengers at risk.
Yes, it is possible to buy personal protective equipment at the shops in the open as well as enclosed area.
The VIP services and Business Lounge are open for passengers.
