Huntsville airport ranks 2nd safest airport

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - Huntsville International Airport is flying high once again as a top-performing U.S. airport. The airport is ranked the second safest U.S. airport One Year Into the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Representative Jana Steen says airports around the country were looked at and ranked based on the the Safe Travel Barometer, which measures COVID-19 safety protocols, disinfection frequency, thermal screening and more.

In addition to ensuring safety, Steen says the airport has focused on maintaining services and flight routes during the pandemic.

“COVID-19 has impacted small community airports more than any others and we are lucky that in this market we have not lost any of our air carriers. A lot of small markets have. And so we’ve maintained all of the air carriers that we had pre-covid and as of May we will have routes and at least one flight operating to all of the nonstops that we have before COVID. And that’s a really big deal,” said Jana Steen Huntsville International representative.

Steen says airport officials are hopeful of expanding in the future, they are constantly talking with carriers.
