Except for a few modifications, Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport will continue to operate at a normal capacity during the COVID-19 outbreak, airport officials said.
To limit the spread of germs, the airport has adopted “increased sanitation efforts” in addition to its routine cleaning and disinfecting procedures, said Dave Edwards, the airport’s president and CEO.
“Around the terminal building, you’ll notice more frequent cleanings, additional hand sanitizer stations and informational signage,” Edwards said in a release.
The airport has also closed its Economy Lot A and temporarily suspended valet parking services, citing a national and local decrease in demand for air travel. Valet service will remain available for returning passengers. The Economy Lot A shuttle service will also be available for those who need to pick up their vehicles.
In addition, Economy Lot B shuttle service will be temporarily suspended starting Monday, March 23. Parking remains available in Garages A and B, the Sky Lots, Economy Lot B and the Daily Lot.
“We are monitoring developments, working closely with federal, state and aviation industry partners and following the recommendations from health officials,” Edwards said. “It is our intent to both limit the spread of the coronavirus … and keep your hometown airport operational.”
The airport has also launched a COVID-19 webpage for the latest coronavirus updates. Contact information for airlines that serve GSP Airport can be found at gspairport.com/airlines.
