We are Ready.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the Gerald R. Ford International Airport works closely with health experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, local, state, and federal governments, along with airline partners to ensure the safety and well-being of our passengers, guests, and employees. 

As of June 1, 2020, all Michigan residents have been able to travel freely in, and beyond, our state. Our team continues to develop and implement new safety and sanitation protocols throughout our facility to ensure every step of your journey is safe — from arrival to departure, and everything in between.   

We are ready when you are – and we can’t wait to see you again soon.

MASK REQUIREMENT UPDATE

On Monday, April 18, 2022, a decision was released by a federal judge in Florida to overturn the CDC’s mask mandate on public transportation and in transportation hubs.

Until further notice, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will not enforce its Security Directives requiring the use of masks on public transportation and in transportation hubs. We will continue to monitor this rapidly evolving situation and communicate any updates as they occur. We encourage our travelers to check with their airline carriers on specific requirements they may have regarding the usage of masks. Read more. 

COMMITMENT TO SAFETY

At the Ford Airport, we believe traveling, whether for business or pleasure, is essential to our well-being. We prepare our facility with extra sanitation measures and protocols to help you get where you’re going safely and with peace of mind by:

cleaning_lady
Reliance on continuous cleaning protocols to disinfect and sanitize high-traffic areas for our employees, tenants, and guests, including bathrooms, airline kiosks, TSA bins, etc.
hand_sanitizer
Placement of hand sanitizer stations throughout the terminal, pre- and post-TSA screening
HVAC-2
Installation of energy-efficient HVAC systems that improved indoor air quality and temperature comfort

For a complete list of our measures and protocols, please read our Preparedness and Response Plan (last revised 11.14.20).

WE NEED YOU ON BOARD

We need the help of all travelers and guests to ensure our safety measures and protocols are successful on top of everyday operations. Here’s what you can do:

Maintain a physical distance of six feet from others at all times in the airport terminal.
stay_home
Remain home and avoid travel if you have recently been diagnosed with or are currently experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.
