London Biggin Hill airport is now accepting international flights from red-listed countries after receiving UK government approval as a national entry point for England.

Passengers onboard arriving services from red-listed countries must be British and Irish nationals or hold residence rights within the UK. Upon arrival at London Biggin Hill, passengers must quarantine at government-designated managed hotels for 10 days in accordance with current COVID-19 restrictions.

London Biggin Hill head of marketing Andy Patsalides says: “Initiatives introduced at the airport in response to the COVID-19 pandemic include our 'Contactless Travel' initiative, allowing passengers to board and alight aircraft with very limited touchpoints throughout their journey, and our dedicated on-site COVID-19 testing centre, the Mansi Testing Suite. Both have supported our local community and international passengers and crew travelling to and through the airport.”
