CRW TO PARTICIPATE IN JETSTREAM MUSIC FESTIVAL

“For so many airports across North America, live music entertainment in the terminal has become a fun way to delight and engage passengers,” said ACI-NA President and CEO Kevin M. Burke. “Despite the sudden and significant drop in passenger traffic at North America’s airports because of the coronavirus health pandemic, this effort by Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and many other North American airports provides a unique opportunity to connect with their passengers. We look forward to hearing these musicians again in airport terminals soon.”

The lineup features a diverse range of acts, representing each city’s unique music culture. The full lineup for the Festival will be released later this week. Austin’s Latin pop songstress, Gina Chavez, will perform and host the event.

Festival viewers will be able to tip musicians throughout the performance and learn about organizations assisting the communities in each city. Viewers can also join in the celebration using the hashtag #JetStreamFest.

“Live music brings Charleston together. Whether it’s down on the levee, or at one of the many venues downtown. It’s something people here are passionate about,” said Yeager Airport Director, Nick Keller. “We can’t get together right now, but that doesn’t mean the music has to stop.”

Beyond the music, viewers will hear from leadership at many of the airports. Airports across North America remain open for essential travel and vital cargo. Employees in these facilities are working around the clock on enhanced cleaning operations, continued airport maintenance and operations, security, and more. Airports are a critical component to the supply chain—including for medical supplies—and continue to provide services for those who must travel.

UPDATE: COVID-19 Additional Measures Being Taken at Yeager Airport

UPDATE: COVID-19 Additional Measures Being Taken at Yeager Airport

The safety of Yeager Airport employees, vendors and passengers is our top priority. When the COVID-19 outbreak started, Airport Director, Nick Keller, and other Airport leaders began meeting with Kanawha County health officials twice a week. Following a meeting with health officials on Sunday, March 22nd, Yeager Airport has implemented the following additional measures to limit the spread of COVID-19:
    • Limited Terminal Access

The terminal is only open to ticketed passengers. If you are picking someone up, we ask that you wait outside. If you have questions about a flight or need to book a flight, please call your airline directly. You can also visit your airline’s website. 

    • Work From Home

Only operation essential employees will be on Airport property. These essential employees are working in teams in two-week shifts while a complete “back-up” team is working from home. This gives us a reserve workforce available to come in if an employee is exposed to COVID-19 and has to quarantine. 

    • Taking Temperatures

A number of our Airport staff members are working from home. For those that still have to come into work to perform essential duties, temperatures screening will take place upon arrival. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or above will be sent home. We are also asking all airport tenants to take the same measures with their employees. 

Yeager Airport is going to remain open and operational. Air Traffic Controllers and TSA, and essential Airport tenants also have contingency and continuity plans in place to keep Yeager Airport open.
