RIC Adopts New Measures as Virginia Reopens

Richmond International Airport (RIC) has been working hard to provide a best-practices response for travel during the COVID-19 outbreak. As the Commonwealth begins to execute the Forward Virginia blueprint for reopening, we're ramping up our efforts by clearly communicating social distancing guidelines, best health practices and more throughout the terminal.

While you're at RIC, listen for public address system announcements concerning travel safety and note digital ads and signs promoting social distancing and the use of face coverings.

Your health and safety are our top priority, but the reality is that we need everyone's cooperation to minimize the risk of transmitting COVID-19 and keep air travel safe for us all. Please do your part by protecting your health, staying informed and staying well.

We look forward to flying with you soon.

All airlines operating scheduled flights at Richmond International Airport require masks or facial coverings onboard aircraft. Additionally, several require facial coverings during "all phases of travel" including at the ticket counter, in the gate area, during boarding, on the aircraft, and during the flight. Please visit your airline's website for specific policy details.
