The Rogue International Medford Airport is anticipating a busy holiday travel season.
“We’re still seeing a lot of folks coming in, taking their trips and going off to visit family and doing the things that they would normally do during the holiday season,” said Jason Foster, air service manager.
Although non-essential travel isn’t reccomended during this time, Foster says a lot of people have already pre-planned and pre-booked their trips.
Foster says their focus continues to be on keeping the airport safe for travelers.
“We’ve upgraded the cleaners at the start of the pandemic to all hospital grade,” Foster said. “You can probably hear the HEPA air filters that we have going on around the airport right now, so we’re scrubbing the air 24/7.”
He says they might see a reduction in business travel over the holidays, but they’re remaining optimistic that traffic at the airport will return to normal.
“We’re looking forward to having people back and just making sure we’re doing the things to keep them safe when they do arrive,” Foster said.
