The airport will then return to a more fuller schedule on Sunday (January 2) with 17 flights currently schedule to take off.

Air travellers will however have to continue to contend with multiple travel restrictions.

Travellers flying out of England will be required to show a negative PCR test, taken within the 48 hours prior to departure, while returning flyers must provide proof of a negative lateral flow or PCR test, within the same time period.
