Neighbouring communities, businesses and residents may see increased activity by the emergency services in and around the airport, including blue lights and loud noises.

Airport operations will not be affected and disruption to the local community will be kept to a minimum.

You are being alerted to the exercise in the event that members of the public contact the media about the increased police presence in the area. There is no media facility.

An area of the terminal will be closed off for the exercise to take place and no access will be granted. Staff will be in place to inform passengers of the exercise and allay any concerns or fears.
