Covid-19 Coronavirus Updates
Due to ongoing concerns related to the COVID-19 Coronavirus, Harrisburg International Airport and our business partners are taking proactive steps to reduce the risk of potential contamination to passengers, employees and others using the airport.
Throughout the terminal building our cleaning company is regularly wiping down surfaces using disinfecting products. Restrooms are cleaned multiple times per day and at night special equipment is used to thoroughly disinfect the entire restroom, including the floor. They are ready to quickly respond should a potential transmission risk be identified in any part of the terminal building.
International passengers arriving from affected areas of the world are screened at the major gateway airports (ATL, ORD, DFW) when they first arrive in the US, and before they fly in Harrisburg.
Our Fire Department/EMS staff is available to aid any passenger/person who may be reported to them as sick/ill.
The airlines serving HIA have waived ticket change fees in many situations. Please contact your airline or visit their website for specific parameters. Please be patient as response times are longer than normal.
The airport recommends all passengers and employees strictly adhere to the guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the US/PA Departments of Health including:
- Wash your hands with soap and water
- Avoid close contact with sick people
- Stay home if you are sick
- Cover nose and mouth when coughing—through away all tissues after each use
- Do not touch your eyes, nose and mouth as much as possible
- Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects used regularly
Airports throughout the nation are taking similar preventive actions so collectively, as an industry, we can continue to serve those who are flying on a daily basis as safely and efficiently as possible.
