Mother, father and a child robot stand in an athletic pose with arms raised nearly touching the ceiling. Their heads, appendages and torsos consist of televisions, blitzing with fast-paced video clips of sports highlights, popular culture and desert imagery.<br><br><strong>Do not be alarmed! </strong>The robot figures are not menacing, but part of an intriguing technology-based sculptural installation by the “Father of Video Art," <strong>Nam June Paik </strong>(1932 – 2006). Titled <em>Electro-Symbio Phonics for Phoenix</em>, the artwork was originally commissioned for Phoenix's new America West Arena (now Talking Stick Resort Arena) in 1992. The robots stood along the doorways leading to the arena from the food court, only to be removed during renovations in 2002.<br><br><img src="/aviationsite/MediaAssets/PHX%20Art%20Exhibition%20child%20detail.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:200px;height:266px;vertical-align:baseline;" class="" />Visitors to the Museum Gallery will be treated to an <strong>immersive experience</strong>. The three robots contain 63 televisions activated by four custom video channels created by the artist. Four vibrant neon murals - depicting symbols of technology, biology and language - flank each figure. The symbols include DNA strands, Chinese characters, an electronic transistor signal and Egyptian hieroglyphs. The glow of technology and neon will mesmerize the viewer.<br><br>Innovative and visionary, artist Nam June Paik played a leading role in bridging the gap between art and technology. Paik is credited as the first to use television as an art medium. Throughout an art career that spanned more than three decades, Paik predicted how media would completely change our lives. As early as the 1970s, he coined the term “Electronic Superhighway" to describe the potential technology had to transform the way we share ideas and collaborate. His experimental work with broadcasting and technology laid the groundwork for many artists working in digital media today.<br><br><strong>Electro-Symbio Phonics for Phoenix </strong>is on display at the Phoenix Airport Museum Gallery, located in Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, Terminal 4 on level 3. The exhibition may be viewed for free during gallery hours, 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. through July 2021.<br><br>The Phoenix Airport Museum is one of the largest airport art museums in the U.S.  The museum includes an art collection of nearly 900 artworks, more than 40 exhibition spaces in six buildings and an Aviation History Collection.  For more information, visit <a target="_blank" href="http://avnshw02/Museum/ExhibitionsTerminal4.html">http://skyharbor.com/Museum/ExhibitionsTerminal4.html</a>.<br><div style="text-align:center;">– 30 –</div><br><strong style="font-size:12px;">Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, America's Friendliest Airport®</strong><span style="font-size:12px;">, has an annual economic impact of more than $38 billion.

Currently WestJet is working with health officials to contact all passengers, crew members and Sky Harbor management to be proactive with this latest information.  Health officials advise that the case is being investigated and those at risk of exposure by these passengers will be contacted.<br><br><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Per WestJet's website: </span><br style="text-decoration:underline;"><br>“The safety of our guests and crews is our top priority. WestJet was advised on March 5 by the Public Health Agency of Canada that two guests who flew from Phoenix to Toronto on February 28 on WestJet flight 1199 have tested positive for COVID-19. WestJet has standard procedures in place for dealing with illness and is working with PHAC, Peel Public Health and the Toronto Pearson Airport.  Peel Public Health's investigation has determined that the two cases may have been able to pass the coronavirus to others during their return. Guests who were seated in rows 18-22 of WestJet flight 1199, returning to Toronto Pearson Airport from the Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix on February 28, are directed to self-isolate and call Peel Public Health immediately at 905-799-7700 (or at 905-584-2216 if in Caledon). Guests on flight 1199 are also being advised to self-monitor for signs of cough, fever or respiratory issues and call Peel Public Health if symptoms arise within the next 14 days."<br><br><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Per Maricopa County Department of Public Health:</span><br style="text-decoration:underline;"><br>Anyone sick with acute respiratory symptoms (not asthma or seasonal allergies), including individuals who have traveled on WestJet flight 1199 should contact their health care provider. Unless a person has severe symptoms such as difficulty breathing, it is not necessary to go to an emergency room. The emergency room will not be able to do anything for individuals who do not have symptoms. COVID-19 spreads similar to flu; therefore, you are most at risk for getting sick if you are in close contact to someone who is actively sick with COVID-19 for an extended period of time. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), close contact is being closer than six feet for more than ten minutes with a sick individual. Generally, because of how air circulates and is filtered on airplanes, most viruses and other germs do not spread easily on airplanes.

Record Number of Passengers Traveled through Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in 2019https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/aviation/875Aviation1/28/2020 7:00:00 AMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/875/newsroom_aviation_050.jpgRecord Number of Passengers Traveled through Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in 2019<div class="ExternalClassFC1B41D2E40E4429BDB72D5FF237E143"><html>​PHOENIX –  In 2019, America's Friendliest Airport® achieved an all-time high for the number of passengers traveling through the Airport. Nearly 46.3 million travelers passed through Phoenix Sky Harbor last year, surpassing the previous record set in 2018 when just under 45 million passengers were served. The year-end passenger total for Phoenix Sky Harbor was 46,288,337, a 3 percent increase compared to 2018.<br><br>Passenger numbers were strong throughout 2019, but December saw a 9 percent increase in passenger traffic compared to 2018. In 2019, Phoenix Sky Harbor had 70% origin and destination traffic, meaning that the majority of travelers started or ended their journeys in Phoenix rather than connecting through the Airport in route to somewhere else.<br><br>“The record-breaking number of passengers Sky Harbor saw in 2019 is another data point highlighting the importance of investing in our airport," said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport is the number one economic engine in the state—yet receives no tax dollars and operates solely with the revenue generated by businesses operating there. We must continue to deliver not only world-class customer service, but ensure upgraded facilities to travelers and those that want to do business with our airport."<br><br>In order to meet the demand on facilities, Phoenix Sky Harbor has several projects underway. These include the 2.5-mile extension of the PHX Sky Train® from the terminals to the Rental Car Center. Additional passenger traffic has placed enormous demand on the Airport's facilities, in particular the curbs. The extension of the PHX Sky Train® to the Rental Car Center will take more than 80 buses off of the roadways and help alleviate curb congestion as well as make for a more efficient experience getting passengers to and from their rental cars.<br><br>Other projects include the recent completion of the Terminal 3 Modernization Program which included three phases – a new consolidated security checkpoint to get travelers to their gates faster, a brand new South Concourse, and a renovated North Concourse, both with all new local restaurants, shops and customer amenities.  Construction is also underway at Terminal 4 where an eight-gate concourse is being built and slated to open in 2022. It will be occupied by Southwest Airlines and will feature new shops, restaurants and customer amenities.<br><br>Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport also continues to bring new airlines and destinations to its customers. In 2019, American Airlines launched their first-ever nonstop service from Phoenix to London Heathrow Airport as well as new service to Chihuahua, Mexico. Condor Airlines extended their seasonal service to Frankfurt, Germany, and in 2020, America's Friendliest Airport® will welcome Eurowings, which will begin nonstop seasonal to service to Frankfurt as well. PHX currently offers nonstop service to more than 100 domestic destinations and 23 international destinations.<br><br>For more information on Sky Harbor's future development projects, please visit <a href="https://www.skyharbor.com/about/development" target="_blank">skyharbor.com/about/development</a>, and for information on all the places you can travel from PHX, visit <a href="https://www.skyharbor.com/flights/flyphx" target="_blank">skyharbor.com/flyPHX</a>.<br><div style="text-align:center;">– 30 –<br></div><div style="text-align:center;"><br></div><div style="text-align:left;">Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, America's Friendliest Airport®, has an annual economic impact of more than $38 billion.

This is another important investment in our state's number one economic driver."<br><br>Cindy McCain also attended the unveiling of her husband's plaque, which will be permanently installed on Level 1 of the terminal bearing his name.<br><br>“Aviation was in John's blood. The terminal that now bears his name in our state's beloved airport is one small way that his legacy will live on in the place he called home," she said.<br><br>The north concourse features 10 airline gates and all new shops, restaurants and customer amenities such as an animal relief area, a nursing room, a family restroom, hearing loop connectivity in the gate areas, and access to power from every seat. <br><br>New restaurants include Ajo Al's, Scramble and The Phoenix Beer Company. These restaurants represent local favorites and will give visitors to the Airport a taste of what the area has to offer. New shops include Discover Arizona with Tech-on-the-Go/House of Marley and Stellar News + Market with Starbucks.<br><br>Like the previous two components of the Terminal 3 Modernization Program, the north concourse offers incredible views of Phoenix's desert landscape, including Camelback Mountain, and plenty of natural light. <br><div style="text-align:left;"><img class="" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:200px;vertical-align:baseline;" src="/aviationsite/MediaAssets/5X3A4211.JPG" />Travelers will also find a public art installation in the north connector bridge. The piece, titled Phoenix Light Threshold, is designed by James Carpenter. The piece features 750 reflective blue and gold aluminum cells that amount to a light-gathering beehive along the west wall of the bridge.</div><br>The north concourse will welcome the first arriving flights on February 3. The first departures from the newly renovated concourse will begin on February 4. All airlines will be relocated from Terminal 2 to Terminal 3 by February 6. With the completion of the Terminal 3 Modernization Program, Terminal 2 will close. Terminal 3 will serve Air Canada, Alaska, Boutique Air, Contour Airlines, Delta, Frontier, Hawaiian, JetBlue, Spirit, Sun Country and United.<br><br>The project, which cost $590 million was paid for through airport revenues such as parking, concessions, and tenant fees.  No local tax dollars are used. <br><br>For more information, please visit <a href="https://skyharbor.com/terminalmodernization" target="_blank">skyharbor.com/terminalmodernization</a>.<br><br><div style="text-align:center;">##</div><br>Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, America's Friendliest Airport®, has an annual economic impact of more than $38 billion.
