The Kansas City Aviation Department is dedicated to providing a safe, secure and healthy environment for our travelers and employees at Kansas City International Airport. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Department leaders are in close contact with the Kansas City Health Department and other expert agencies. If there are any related developments, the Department supports those agencies’ efforts.

How to keep yourself safe:
Based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as the Kansas City Health Department, the City of Kansas City, Missouri issued a face mask order in effect until at least January 16, 2021. The ordinance requires the wearing of face (nose and mouth) coverings in all public buildings, including KCI terminals, buildings and buses, where social distancing cannot be maintained. In addition, the Aviation and Health departments recommend that all KCI Airport patrons continue to practice social distancing and regularly wash their hands. Be sure to arrive early for your flight. New safety precautions are in place, so check-in, screening and boarding processes may take extra time.
