Daytona Beach International Airport implements Ready To Fly initiative


Daytona Beach International Airport has implemented best practices of the travel industry to provide a safe and healthy environment for travelers. The Ready To Fly initiative combines enhanced safety practices such as deep cleaning and disinfection, social distancing, sanitizer stations and public messaging.

“Daytona Beach International Airport is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for travelers,” said Airport Director Rick Karl. “Passengers can feel confident in the safety measures in place.  As a smaller airport, it’s much easier to keep your social distance.”

In early March, the airport began enhanced cleaning of the facility with special attention to high-touch surfaces. Also, additional hand sanitizer stations were installed throughout the airport.

The airport has installed protective, transparent barriers at customer service stations, including airline ticket counters, rental car counters and retail shops.

Signs will soon be displayed throughout the terminal reminding people to keep safe distances and practice good hand hygiene. There will also be information about COVID-19 symptoms and local health resources. 

In the coming months, the airport will make personal care kits available for passengers. The DAB Cares Kits include hand sanitizer and a face covering. The airport encourages travelers to follow CDC guidance on face coverings; Delta Air Lines and American Airlines require face coverings while traveling. Specific requirements vary by airline, and travelers should consult the airlines for details.

“DAB Ready To Fly measures reflect the essential role the airport and the travel industry must play to help promote the health and safety of our customers and employees,” said Karl. “But no industry can overcome this challenge alone. Travelers also have a responsibility. They must adopt new travel practices and follow science-based guidelines to help protect the health of their family and those around them, including fellow travelers and industry employees.”
