Since the beginning of the Pandemic, many airports ceased their operations, canceling flights and many activities, this terribly affected tourism at an international level, since the airports were closed for commercial flights, stopping the flow of tourists around the world.
Now many destinations have joined together to guarantee security to each and every tourist at the different airports around the world. In the case of Cancun, since the beginning of the pandemic, very strict measures were taken to avoid any contagion, and official transportation at Cancun airport is no exception, since it takes care of the health of travelers above all.
After the start of lockdown in March earlier this year, airport activity was deeply affected in Mexico (and all over the world), especially with the uncertainty of the pandemic and its advances in the country. Many flights had to be cancelled, and new measures had to be taken in order to go back to what’s called the new normalcy and give outstanding service.
With new health protocols for businesses all over the country to prepare to restart the economy after the COVID-19 pandemic, Cancun Airport has taken every measure to keep its customers and shop owners safe, considering it receives international flights every day and connects to others that are bound to visit the rest of the country and the rest of the world.
Wearing a mask is obligatory for giving and receiving service and to enter the premises, as well as temperature checks and the use of health regulated 90% alcohol hand sanitizer. Safe distancing is encouraged and businesses within the airport have new policies regarding capacity inside its stores to prevent overcrowding, which could lead to a higher risk of exposure.
Some airlines have installed self check-in kiosks to reduce contact, which are sanitized periodically to keep your belongings safe.
Before reaching the airline modules, certified staff reaches out to incoming customers for a health related questionnaire to ask about related symptoms and thus minimize risk of contagium.
Help desks and other points of contact have also been modified with barriers and safe distancing to prevent microbial spread, limiting contact between staff and customers according to suggestions from respected medical authorities.
Airlines have taken preventive measures as well, like giving their customers flexibility in ticket purchasing, and adjustment in routes, schedules and even seat charting in order to protect personnel and patrons alike. Flight personnel are required to use personal protection, including face masks and shields, as well as gloves.
Cancun airport and its providers are complying with all of the sanitation regulations the federal government has issued so far, as well as keeping up with WHO directives and updates on the pandemic to keep preventive measurements and train staff to follow new protocols and guide the public in safe practices to make their experience more enjoyable.
These measurements include transportation to and from the airport to hotel complexes and other accommodations in the city. But only the Official Cancun Airport Transportation are sanitized and disinfected after
