REDDING, Calif. - As coronavirus restrictions loosen around our area, it's changed the way we travel. The Redding Municipal Airport has made some changes and modifications to its facility in order to accommodate coronavirus restrictions.

Action News Now reporter Karen Alvarez was live at the Redding Municipal Airport. 

Airport manager, Jim Wadleigh, told us that passenger travel at the Redding Municipal Airport is down significantly, which is expected since travelling is still not encouraged.

The terminal at the Redding Municipal Airport is open, but because the number of people travelling has dipped, so has the number of flights.

Airport officials say before the coronavirus, there were three flights to and from San Francisco and one to and from Los Angeles. Private, corporate, and air cargo flights are down too but are still operating.

Airport officials say they continue to encourage travellers to follow the recommendations of health officials.

Airport manager, Jim Wadleigh: "For example, take any opportunity to wash your hands thoroughly, avoid touching your face, using hand-sanitizer, follow social distancing guidelines and space apart from other travellers and bringing a mask."

If you happen to forget a mask or do not have one, the airport offers complimentary masks which you are required to wear while onboard.

Airport officials say they've ramped up cleaning and disinfecting the terminal with special attention to all "touch points" they've also installed a "step and pull" to each of their restroom doors, placed a number hand-sanitizing stations, and even offer complimentary travel-size hand sanitizers.

Airport manager Jim Wadleigh tells Action News Now he belives travelling will start to pick up in the next few months as restrictions loosen.
