COVID-19

Current federal regulations do not require a COVID test or a vaccination in order to fly domestically. However, you do need to wear a mask in the airport terminal and on the aircraft.

If you're flying overseas you may need a COVID test. Do your homework before booking travel.

COVID testing is not available at this airport. Testing is sometimes available at U.S. airports with international flights.

When you travel to the United States by air, you are required to show a negative test result or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before you board your flight.

GETTING THERE


Bottom line: it’s easy to fly within the continental United States. Travel to many foreign countries is trickier due to travel restrictions and fewer overseas flights. Do your research before buying tickets.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE AIRPORT


As mandated by federal law, everyone entering the terminal must wear a mask. Additionally, masks are required on-board the airplane. No mask, no fly.

Inside the terminal custodians are busy cleaning surfaces that people touch: counter tops, door handles, restrooms. Furniture is wiped down several times a day. Hand sanitizing stations are located at strategic locations throughout the terminal.

At the security check point TSA staff wear masks, rubber gloves, and face shields. The gray bins are cleaned after every use.

Counters have sneeze guards. Social distance stickers mark the floor. Airlines deep clean aircraft every day.

At times, our terminal smells hospital clean. This effort is not unique to Springfield — it’s going on at airports across the country.

All of us look forward to welcoming you back — when you’re ready.
