Airports ask you to mask up

Lori Schmidt

John Glenn Columbus International Airport and Rickenbacker International Airport are now requiring face coverings. You will also be required to mask up on airport shuttle buses. 

Most airlines already had such a requirement, but prior to now, mask-wearing at the airport was only strongly encouraged. 


There are a limited number of complimentary masks available, though vendors at the airport may have some for sale as well. 

Additional safety measures taken by both airports include new machines that will allow you to obtain a ticket to park in their lots without having to touch a keypad, as well as strongly recommending that patrons follow health guidelines regarding socially distancing and frequent hand washing. 

There are now 4,200 passengers departing from John Glenn every day. That is a 66% decrease from traffic at this time last year, but it’s also more than 12 times the number of flyers the airport saw at its lowest point in April.
