Long Island MacArthur Airport is the first airport in the world to install an air and surface pathogen reduction program that operates 24/7 in terminal areas to provide customers peace of mind. Read press release. Watch video.

Additionally, the Silver Defender disinfection films are now on high-touch surfaces at the airport. Learn more.

Masks are required upon entering the airport. Additional Personal Protective Equipment such as face coverings, wipes, hand sanitizer are available via touchless vending.

The airport continues to take proactive steps to make customers feel safe and comfortable in our terminals. This includes increased disinfection and cleaning of restrooms and shuttle buses, along with frequently touched surfaces such as ticket counters and kiosks, gate areas, handrails and doorknobs. Our customers are respectfully complying with physical distancing. Our airlines are also providing protection measures at the ticket counter and gate, as well as onboard aircraft.

Recently, studies from the Dept of Defense/United Airlines and the International Air Travel Association has shown that – while wearing a mask – there is very minimal instance of Covid-19 transmission.

Here are some links to the latest information available from our airlines as they provide updates on aircraft cleaning and health protections for customers.
