PQI Ready-to- Fly

The safety of all passengers and staff remains our top priority here at Presque Isle International Airport. We continue to follow the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as it relates to sanitizing high-touch, high-traffic areas. On an ongoing basis we are evaluating what best practices other airports are implementing across the Country to slow or stop the spread of COVID-19. Passenger care kits and the implementation of electrostatic sprayer technology are just two examples of the best practices found. The overall effort to implement the best-of-the-best is dubbed “PQI Ready-to-Fly”!
