Frequently Asked Questions

When should I check-in for my flight?

Noise Action Plan

The LBA Noise Action Plan (NAP) brings together all our noise management activities into one living document. This includes specific actions that will be implemented by LBA to manage the effects of noise arising from airport activities, in order to minimise, as far as reasonably practicable, any adverse impact on the local communities surrounding the airport.

How does the Security Scanner work?

The security scanner uses active millimetre wave technology. It will scan the passenger’s body and analyse the data using Automated Threat Recognition (ATR) software. This software identifies any areas where prohibited items may be concealed, which are flagged on a standardised stick-figure on a screen. The security officer can then conduct a further targeted hand-search on these identified areas.

Can I take my Blue Badge abroad with me?

If you need to retain your Blue Badge for your travels, please display a photocopy of your badge in your windscreen. The disabled parking area is checked regularly and your car may be clamped or a fixed penalty fine issued if there is no sign of disabled parking entitlement.
