How the Coronavirus epidemic is being managed within the skydving community
*** STOP PRESS! SKYDIVING CENTRES NOW HAVE THE GREEN LIGHT TO RE-OPEN!***
Concerned about how the Coronavirus may affect a booking you already have with UK Skydiving Adventures? Or maybe you are thinking about whether you should book a skydive?
Please don’t worry!
Here are some reassurances from UK Skydiving Adventures as well as information on how the Coronavirus outbreak is being managed within the skydiving community in the UK.
Firstly, please be assured that all centres are following the advice and guidance as provided by the NHS and Public Health England to ensure the safety of staff and customers. Following a period of closure, most centres are now gradually starting to re-open. A list of centres including the date that they hope to re-open are shown below. Please be aware that these dates may change.
If you are considering booking a skydive with UK Skydiving Adventures:
Please be assured that once you have booked a skydive, if your skydive then needs to be postponed due to either the airfield having to temporarily close or due to you needing to self-isolate, your booking is still safe. You will be able to re-schedule your skydive free of charge to another date at your convenience.
Customers who currently already have a skydive booked:
Once the centres do re-open, to enable us to keep the centres, staff and customers safe, we would like to kindly ask that all participants and their spectators review the current advice relating to the virus before travelling to the airfield for a skydive. You can view the latest guidance at http://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public .
If after reading the current government advice you feel that you need to self-isolate and not make any unnecessary journeys, please let us know so that we can rearrange your skydive for another date at your convenience. We will be wavering any admin fee during this time.
Gift Voucher Customers:
If you have a skydiving gift voucher that is due to expire soon, please don't worry! Vouchers due to expire whilst the centres are still closed will be automatically extended until the 30th November, 2020 which we hope will give customers enough time to use their voucher once the skydiving centres have re-opened. Rest assured we want you to be able to use your voucher so if we need to extend vouchers further we will.
