POST COVID 19 TRAVEL FACTSHEET

We've all had our fair share of anxiety in these recent, unprecedented times.

Nothing lasts forever and nor will this current pandemic.

With very few cases of Covid-19 present, Gibraltar remains a safe destination to visit.

As of 1st February 2021, lockdown in Gibraltar came to an end with all shops, businesses, hotels, gyms and salons open for business. Restaurants, bars and cafes open fully as of 1st March 2021 but are open for takeaway now.

We have seen a surge in bookings for travel to Gibraltar for this year and beyond. Booking ahead certainly has its advantages with air fares being the lowest they have been in decades and hotels offering promotional offers and free nights. Now is a very good time to book a holiday.

And if you work for the NHS or are a frontline / key worker, there are even more benefits awaiting you! Take a look at our special offers tailor-made just for you: www.mygibraltar.co.uk/frontline.aspx. After months of confinement, it will feel incredibly liberating to be on the move again.

So let's get you moving. Here are some answers to common questions you may have about travelling abroad :

Is it safe to fly?

The air inside aircrafts is always flowing in and out of the cabin. It is purified every three minutes through high-efficiency particulate air filters (HEPA filters) that remove 99.97% of airborne viruses and bacteria. It, therefore, provides the same level of sterile and clean air filtration as that found in hospital operating rooms.

Electrostatic spraying or fogging is also being used to kill germs and viruses in the aircrafts at the end of the day.

Of course, it is still best to practice proper hand hygiene & coughing etiquette and to wipe down the area around your seat as well as toilet door handles after touching them. The wearing of gloves and face masks will continue to be actively encouraged or even a prerequisite and in-flight meals are served in sealed boxes.

Flying Club Europe (business class) will now offer an added reassurance in the air with its separate and limited entry cabin as well as separate departure lounge.

Is it safe to stay in a hotel?

Yes. Hotels have stepped up their sanitation measures including thorough cleaning of common areas. All Gibraltar hotels are open for business.

Are Gibraltar shops and businesses open?

Yes all open including gyms and salons. Restaurants, bars and cafes reopen fully as of 1st March 2021 but are open for takeaways now. Hotel restaurants remain open for hotel guests.

Are airlines now flying to Gibraltar?

British Airways and EasyJet continue to operate regular flights to/from Gibraltar from Gatwick, Heathrow, Luton, Bristol and Manchester. A brand new service has been launched from Luton by Wizz Air which will be operating a thrice-weekly service to Gibraltar. EasyJet will be introducing an Edinburgh to Gibraltar service as of 30th March 2021. Another brand new service has been launched from Birmingham and Southampton by Eastern Airways and will be initially operating a twice weekly flight to Gibraltar.

If I fall sick in Gibraltar, can I get medical help?

If you're a British national living in the UK, you are eligible for free medical emergency treatment in Gibraltar by presenting your British passport. However, as some emergency treatment may require transfer to Spain, you should get a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) before you travel. The EHIC is not a substitute for medical and travel insurance but entitles you to emergency medical treatment on the same terms as Spanish nationals. You will not be covered for medical repatriation, on-going medical treatment or non-urgent medical treatment.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Rock.
