Charleston International Airport is reporting an uptick in travel for the first time since mid-March despite a newly issued requirement that mandates travelers quarantine for a period of 14 days if coming from (or through) South Carolina to Kansas, New Mexico, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and Chicago.
We saw roughly 33,400 passengers come through the airport, which is a lot better than what we’ve been experiencing. Now, keep in mind that’s still compared to the 98,000 people we had last year for the same week—so it’s still not great comparatively to previous years. But compared to the last few months, it was a God sent.
Elliott Summey, CEO/ Director Charleston International Airport.
The airport is requesting that passengers follow the CDC guidelines by social distancing and wearing a mask. GCT recommends that if you’re flying, be sure to wear a mask, avoid touching your face, wash or sanitize your hands often, and try to keep your distance from others.
When arriving or departing, we can provide safe Charleston airport transportation in fully sanitized and clean vehicles driven by healthy, professional chauffeurs. We have taken a number of extra measures to ensure our customers’ safety and well being. Learn more about what we’re doing.
