FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
COVID-19 circumstances and updates are occurring rapidly at this time and we wish to assure the travelling public that the Grande Prairie Airport is monitoring and adjusting where necessary with public and employee safety as our top priority.
While we realize that air travel is a key point of concern we also understand that this essential service is a necessary form of travel to our region.
At this time the airport is functioning normally and extra precautions are being taken in accordance with public health directives. Communications with air carriers, airports, government officials and local authorities are ongoing.
The Grande Prairie Airport has a dedicated monitoring team active 24 hours a day to ensure the most relevant information and updates are carefully reviewed and operations are adjusted accordingly.
We wish to remind the public that the Grande Prairie Airport does not have direct air service to any locations outside of Canada and arriving passengers from those locations are being monitored under the direction of our federal and provincial authorities at appointed ports of entry including international airports.
