You can simply add a local.xml file with the following code snippet so you do not have to change the core layout.xml files.

    <remove name="footer"/>

At last i have a good process to remove footer from checkout onepage.I have remove footer changing in checkout.xml.

  <checkout_onepage_index translate="label">
        <label>One Page Checkout</label>
        <!-- Mage_Checkout -->
        <remove name="left"/>

        <reference name="root">
            <action method="setTemplate">....
 <block type="checkout/onepage_review" name="checkout.onepage.review" as="review" template="checkout/onepage/review.phtml"/>
<remove name="footer" />

    Hopefully this checkout.xml is in your own theme! If not, you should use Davids method, because it makes the update easier. Commented Apr 4, 2014 at 7:41
