It’s An Unusual Holiday Travel Season This Year

Holiday Air Travel

Holiday air travel for 2020 will not be like any other year, but it will still be a time to reflect on the year and anticipate what’s in store for 2021 travel. While many organizations and governments are recommending people stay home and not travel, there are many people that do need to travel, so whatever your reason, here are a few suggestions to help make your travel safe.

Airports are keeping travelers updated on security wait times, providing PPE equipment for purchase and even offering testing sites such as the new one at LaGuardia Airport Terminal B. With sanitizing stations throughout the terminals and plexiglass at check in counters, the airports are constantly cleaning the terminals to make it safe to fly.

Packing your bags will be different this year.  For your carry-on, you might want to include extra masks, sanitizing wipes, shoe coverings, even a thermometer – a sign of how 2020 has changed travel. The TSA has temporarily changed its rules on the amount of hand sanitizer you can take to allow larger quantities; check the website and its social channels for any updates and what holiday items (lights, snow globes, etc.) you can take with you. If you’re traveling with gifts, consider whether you should wrap your gifts in advance or at your destination – or have your items shipped to your location. Also be sure to check your airline’s website about what is being offered onboard your flight because drinks and meals may be limited.

Most hotels and resorts allow you to check in remotely; the room cleaning procedures have improved so check their websites for details before you arrive.

Air General Traveler Services has highly qualified Greeters to support you while you travel, even accompanying you to your hotel or final destination to make the journey easier for you. Our Airport Greeters carry additional sanitizing wipes and disposable bags so your items don’t sit in possible unclean security trays and foot coverings in case you have to remove your shoes.
