With air travel steadily on the rise this summer and increased vaccination rates, it’s a good time to remind our airport guests that when you’re ready to travel, Vantage airports are ready to welcome you safely.

We participated in a study by researchers from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health that explored how safety measures in place throughout the air travel journey have significantly reduced the risks of COVID-19 transmission, both on board aircraft and curb-to-curb at airports.

Over a six-week period, the research team surveyed health safety measures at 25 airports, including several in Vantage’s network. The study found that airports have implemented a robust set of science-backed, layered risk mitigations which significantly limit the possible transmission of COVID-19 and protect passengers and employees from curb to gate.

In the early days of the pandemic, Vantage airports quickly implemented a range of safety measures, including mandatory mask requirements, enhanced cleaning, disinfection and ventilation, as well as contactless technologies for airport transactions like check-in and meal ordering and delivery.

Findings of the Harvard study validate our layered approach to health measures and offer an important reminder that we all have a part to play in staying healthy and safe.
