In addition to these operational changes GPA wishes to remind travelers that effective at 10:00am today a non-medical face mask or other suitable covering is required for air travel.
Communications with air carriers, airports, government officials and local authorities are ongoing to review the needs of the community.
“It is incumbent upon our airport to do our part in reducing the spread of COVID-19 in our region”, says Brian Grant, CEO. “We recognize our responsibilities to provide essential service to the region and as such the airport continues to remain open as usual 24 hours per day 7 days per week to all other users.
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.
