Commercial flights from Exeter are now available to book once more as government-imposed restrictions continue to ease.

Exeter Airport has remained open for medical and military flights throughout the coronavirus crisis and has welcomed the return of commercial routes.

It says it has put "proactive measures in place to ensure the safety and well-being of staff and passengers".


The extra social-distancing measures installed at the airport include:

  • Enhanced cleaning in the terminal and throughout the site

  • Additional hand sanitiser units

  • Floor markings and signage (where feasible) so passengers can maintain a safe social distance

  • Protective desk screens and reduced capacity in public areas

  • Access and egress restrictions (one-way system)

  • Displaying the latest public health information throughout the airport, including regular announcements
