Restrictions in Spanish airport terminals to be lifted 

Raquel Sanchez, the Minister of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda, announced today, Saturday, October 9, that current coronavirus restrictions on accessing airport terminals in Spain will be lifted “in the next few days”.

This measure will apply to all national airports operated by Aena. At present, to limit the number of people gathering in one place, only passengers with a boarding pass, aerodrome workers and companions, are permitted to enter the airport terminals with just cause.

“In the next few days we are going to announce and approve in the Council of Ministers that we are eliminating restrictions for access to terminals at Aena’s airports”, said Ms Sanchez.
