The decision is in response to the serious and unprecedented impact of corona virus on the global aviation sector. The temporary closure of the north terminal will take at least a month and the situation will be checked regularly.
A decision to reopen the North Terminal will be implemented when air traffic increases and public health advice including social distancing is relaxed.
