GIBRALTAR INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT is one of the foundations of Gibraltar’s trade and in order to support the community in their efforts against Covid-19 during this difficult time, Ocean Village has donated complementary hand sanitizers to the airport with a new dispenser stand located in arrivals.
Emilia Hazell-Smith, representative of Ocean Village said: “We are delighted to be able to donate our hand sanitizers to Gibraltar Airport to help keep travellers safe.
We have donated over 30,000 hand sanitizers throughout Gibraltar since we started distribution at the beginning of August.”
Terence Lopez, CEO of Gibraltar Airport, said: “Despite the reduction in passenger figures this year, we are equally concerned for the health and wellbeing of all our passengers and staff, and look forward to Gibraltar’s safe and profitable return to normality.”
Currently only easyJet and British Airways run scheduled flights in and out of Gibraltar with easyJet serving Bristol, London Gatwick and Manchester whilst British Airways serve London Heathrow.
There are also a number of private flights and charter flights brining in foreign football teams (such as Glasgow Rangers who last week beat Lincoln Red Imps 5 – 0 in the Europa League) plus regular RAF runs.
