Changing facilities

We offer a wide range of facilities and assistance to help you throughout your journey.

We have adult Changing facilities located on the 1st floor of the main terminal which include an adjustable bed, toilet and wash basin facilities, all located in a large area. Our changing facilities are free to use and do not need to be pre-booked.

Facilities for the hard of hearing and visually impaired sighted

Induction loops are available where there are signs showing the 'sympathetic ear' symbol. The airport directional signs use black text on a yellow background, for maximum visibility. Guide and hearing dogs are the only dogs allowed in the terminal buildings.

Help/Call points

Special assistance help/call points are sited throughout the terminal, car parks and baggage reclaim halls. Assistance is free and readily available.

Reserved seating

There are reserved seating areas clearly identified by special assistance signs both at the Assistance desk and in the main departure lounge. Passengers who have booked the executive lounge experience may be assisted to and from the executive lounge on request.

Further information on the Executive Lounge.


Unisex accessible toilets are provided and occasionally the accessible toilet is located inside the men's or ladies toilets.
