The Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) expects that November and December will be its busiest months for passenger traffic during the pandemic started, with this past Friday, and this coming Tuesday through next Monday being the busiest days for Thanksgiving travel.
This year's holidays arrive amid a surge in COVID cases here and across the country.
“Passenger safety is our top priority as evidenced by our global health accreditation,” said Candace McGraw, chief executive officer, CVG. “We encourage passengers to visit our website which provides information, videos and links to resources for travelers to plan ahead to feel comfortable and confident when arriving at the airport.”
Specific changes and updates passengers will see at CVG:
- Frequent cleaning and disinfecting of high-traffic areas and touchpoints including restrooms and handrails, and aircraft (which is done by the airlines). A new product enhancement at the airport is the use of SafetyNet, a two-step process that first applies an electrostatic disinfection followed up by an anti-microbial solution that binds to and protects surfaces for 30+ days.
- Plexiglass guards installed at ticketing counters, security checkpoint, concessions locations, and gate areas.
- More than double the number of hand sanitizer stations added throughout airport facilities.
- Friendly reminders for travelers to wear masks and social distance themselves from others.
