Airports must meet new security requirements to reopenAirports must meet new security requirements to reopen

Air traffic remains grounded in the United States. The FAA is requiring that Part 107 air carrier airports (airports served by airliners with more than 60 seats) go to the highest level of security before they are allowed to reopen. Some of those requirements may take some time to implement. But the FAA has not yet said what will be required before general aviation airports can reopen. AOPA continues to work with the FAA to ensure that general aviation can get back in the air as soon as possible.

The elevated security requirements at the major airline airports include evacuating all passenger terminals and conducting a sweep for dangerous objects, establishing police-staffed security checkpoints, discontinuing curbside check-in, and identification checks.
