The Government announced this Monday the end of access limitations to Spanish airports. Since July 2020, access to Aena’s infrastructures was limited to passengers with a boarding pass and entry for companions was prevented. The suppression has been approved today in the Council of Ministers and will come into force next Friday, October 15.
This new standard modifies the Royal Decree-Law 26/2020, of July 7, of economic reactivation measures to face the impact of COVID-19 in the areas of transport and housing, which only allowed access to the airport to passengers with a valid ticket or boarding pass, in the 6 hours prior to the scheduled departure of the flight, as well as the strictly necessary companions of minors, people with reduced mobility or other duly justified cause.
However, as transmitted by the Ministry of Transport in a statement, the entry of companions “may be limited at times of great influx to avoid agglomerations.”
