If your flight is cancelled, you should contact your airline or tour operator.
Airport staff will be on hand to help you, but the best source of information will be from your airline directly. Airline apps usually update fastest – often faster than information can be shared with the airport itself – so we highly recommend that you download your chosen airline’s app before your flight.

We have a number of food and drink facilities at the airport, including The Pilot Café and SKYCAFÉ. These all serve a range of food and drink options, but please visit their specific pages for more detail.
