    Flying through Melbourne

    We know some people may feel a little uncertain about air travel, which is why we have taken extra steps to make you feel safe on your journey through the airport.

    There are now hand sanitiser units located in check-in, along each concourse (walk-to-gate), in all of our bathroom facilities and food courts. We have also installed disinfectant wipes in domestic and international departures.

    To minimise crowding we have placed visual aids on the ground in busy areas such as security screening and check-in, plus we have carefully spaced out seating to support physical distancing.

    We’re also working closely with our retailers and contractors to ensure hygiene measures are consistent with government advice.
    Our airline customers also have methods to keep travellers safe and to find out more we encourage you to contact the airline you’re flying with.

    What you can do to stay healthy

    The most important thing to avoid catching any virus, be it coronavirus, the flu or the common cold, is to wash your hands and avoid touching your face.

    Here's how you can stay safe when travelling:
    • Regularly wash your hands for at least 20 seconds

    • Hand sanitiser is located in all terminals - Arrivals and Departures

    • Cover your sneeze or cough with your arm, not your hands

    • Maintaining distance of 1.5m between other travellers
