NAD Prepares for Uptick in Travel over Easter Holidays

Travelers should arrive early for their scheduled flights given COVID-19 protocols.

 

March 31, 2021 – NAD anticipates an uptick in visitor arrivals and departures over the upcoming Easter holiday period.  The month of March 2021 has been the most successful month for passenger arrivals since the COVID-19 pandemic commenced and Easter will allow April to start strong.

Passengers traveling internationally over the Easter Holidays are reminded to arrive at the airport at least 3 hours prior to their scheduled departure time. This will allow ample time for check in and other processing taking into consideration COVID-19 travel protocols.  COVID-19 Rapid Antigen testing is available at the airport for passengers traveling to the United States.  Travelers who plan to have their tests administered at the airport should arrive at least 3.5 hours prior to their scheduled departure time.

NAD has seen steady but incremental monthly increases in domestic traffic since November 2020.   There has also been month over month increases in international travelers for November, December and January.  The airport experienced a slight downturn in international passengers during February compared to January, however March has shown the type of positive upward trend that we hope can continue throughout 2021.

During March, NAD had nonstops flights from 21 markets. Nine of those 21 markets had daily or near-daily service for the month.  It is anticipated that April will have nonstop flights from 23 markets with American Airlines adding flights from Washington, DC; JetBlue adding flights from New Jersey and United Airlines reintroducing its Denver flight.

Passengers travelling via LPIA are reminded of the airport’s COVID-19 protocols.  All airport users must wear a mask or face covering (over the mouth and nose) when in the terminal buildings.  Passengers must observe social distancing especially when queueing and adhere to the social distancing markers throughout the airport.  Access to the terminal facilities is limited to ticketed passengers only. NAD will allow non-ticketed individuals who are assisting elderly passengers, passengers with restricted mobility and minors travelling alone.  The airport has ample hand sanitizing stations and washrooms to facilitate hand cleansing.

NAD wishes all travelers a safe trip and Happy Easter!
