COVID-19 Response and prepardness

We want to instill the highest level of confidence that Pensacola international Airport is a safe, clean, and comfortable airport for our employees, passengers and guests. While the protocols and procedures described in the COVID-19 Response Plan are key components, it all starts with our staff and a certain frame of mind we ask of each employee and tenant. Every person that comes through our airport is important and it is our privilege and duty to create an environment that displays that feeling.

Our key components are:

  • Safe and Clean Facilities for our Team and Travelers
  • Clear Communication
  • Organizational Resilience
  • Strengthen Business
  • Economic Recovery


In light of COVID-19 and a heightened concern for public health, Pensacola International Airport has launched an Airport-wide effort “AtTheReady” to implement best practices designed to slow or stop the spread of germs and viruses. The Airport is also strongly urging passengers and guests to modify behaviors and follow guidelines designed to keep themselves and others healthy and safe.

This informational one-pager is designed to help each passenger know what they can expect when they enter our facility. Pensacola International Airport is committed to you and prepared for when you are ready to return to the skies.

The Florida Department of Health does not have any screening procedures at Pensacola International Airport. FDH has setup testing sites around our community for persons to be tested.

TSA is currently allowing one liquid hand sanitizer container, up to 12 ounces per passenger, in carry-on bags until further notice. Since these containers exceed the standard 3.4-ounce allowance typically permitted through a checkpoint, they will need to be screened separately. This will add some time to the checkpoint screening experience. Please keep in mind that all other liquids, gels and aerosols brought to a checkpoint continue to be limited to 3.4 ounces or 100 milliliters carried in a one quart-size bag.

Pensacola International Airport does not perform temperature checks on passengers arriving or departing our airport. Those coming to the airport for meetings, badging, or testing will have their temperature checked.

Some exceptions do apply for those with medical conditions, for eating, and drinking. Passengers are encouraged to continue to keep appropriate distancing while at the airport. 

Airlines require all passengers to wear a mask before boarding and while on your flight.
