Information regarding COVID-19 epidemic

In connection with emerging cases of COVID-19 coronavirus, we kindly inform you that Lodz Airport is in constant contact with sanitary services and other entities responsible for health safety (current list of countries where the virus was recorded are available at: www.who.int, www.ecdc.europa.eu, www.gis.gov.pl).

For the sake of your safety, we monitor the situation and respond to any recommendations and guidelines in the field of public health protection on an ongoing basis.

In the absence of a clear need, we recommend limiting the presence of bystanders in the terminal.

In order to verify the readiness of services and procedures, on 10 March 2020 we organized an extraordinary meeting of the Emergency Committee with the representatives from Regional Sanitary and Epidemiological Station, Border Guard, Police, Customs Office, Crisis Management Department of the Lodz city and State Fire Service. According to the procedures, appropriate measures are implemented to minimize the risk of the spread of infectious diseases. We gradually place additional dispensers with hand disinfectants on the airport terminal. Lodz Airport is prepared to respond in the event of epidemiological threats.

Passengers may be asked by cabin crew to fill out a Passenger Location Card.

At the same time, we would like to remind you of the basic preventive and diagnostic principles which will limit the spread of viruses:

RECOMMENDATIONS
