Tucson Airport Authority team members and our partners have been working diligently to help ensure your travel experience through Tucson International Airport (TUS) is as safe as possible. Our custodial crews take pride that their outstanding work in the terminal has long been recognized by passengers in our annual customer service surveys. The TAA is not wavering from those high standards and, in fact, has taken added measures.The following are some of the TUS Cares measures and precautions:NEW: Handrails on escalators and moving walkways are being sterilized by ultraviolet germicidal irradiation using UV-C light installed underneath the rails as they cycle.Transparent acrylic shields have been installed at airline check-in, gate podium and baggage claim counters as well as points of transactions counters for rental cars and shops and restaurants.Signage and markers to indicate safe physical distancing have been installed in queues for airline counters and security checkpoints, gate waiting areas, around baggage claim carousels and in the rental car center.Face coverings are being worn by employees of the TAA, TSA, the airlines and other airport companies at the airport to reduce the potential spread of COVID-19.Restrooms are being monitored and cleaned multiple times throughout the day. All restrooms are disinfected overnight using specialized sanitation machines. (Fixtures - faucets, soap and paper towel dispensers, toilets - use touchless activation.)'High-touch' areas (self-service kiosks, handrails, armrests, etc.) are cleaned multiple times throughout the day using EPA-approved disinfectants designed to kill bacteria/viruses within 5 minutes of application.Gate waiting areas are being cleaned multiple times throughout the day with disinfectants and sanitized overnight.More instant hand sanitizer dispensers have been added throughout the terminal.Extra soap, the preferred method for washing hands, is maintained in restrooms, especially near food service areas.Traditional drinking fountains have been taken out of service and dispensers with disposable paper cups have been installed next to water bottle filling stations on the concourses.Deep cleaning of surfaces has been done throughout the terminal.Airport Parking Shuttles are using new boarding and exiting procedures and limiting capacity to reduce potential for contact.
