In considering the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in our region and the announcement by Alberta Health Service
on October 13, 2020 that the City of Grande Prairie has been elevated to a “Watch” status, the Grande Prairie Airport will be reimplementing access restrictions into the Air Terminal Building to passengers and staff only commencing Friday October 16, 2020. The requirement to wear a mask in all public areas of the facility remains in effect at this time. These restrictions do not affect curbside drop off or parking. Passengers can still be met outside in front of the Air Terminal.
COVID-19 circumstances and updates continue to occur frequently at this time and we wish to assure the traveling public that the Grande Prairie Airport is monitoring and adjusting where necessary with public and employee safety as our top priority.
“We are aware of the delicate balance between control of the pandemic and the need for essential travel. The addition of temperature monitoring at airports by airlines and CATSA has increased our ability to monitor and track COVID-19 and we look forward to enhanced testing solutions in the future” says Brian Grant, CEO.
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.
