Free COVID-19 Vaccine Event Offered to Airport Employees and Their Familieshttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/aviation/1874Aviation4/26/2021 8:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1874/newsroom_aviation_067.jpgFree COVID-19 Vaccine Event Offered to Airport Employees and Their Families<div class="ExternalClassA85426C6FF094BD88C52F27DD675CDD8"><html>PHOENIX – As the largest economic engine in the state of Arizona, the Phoenix Airport system consisting of Phoenix Sky Harbor, Phoenix Deer Valley and Phoenix Goodyear airports employs more than 33,000 people. In order to ensure that employees have access to the COVID-19 vaccine, a free vaccination event is being held at the 44th Street PHX Sky Train® Station through April 29.<br><br>Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego kicked off the four-day event on Monday, April 26.<br><br><img class="" style="margin:5px 0px;width:300px;height:169px;vertical-align:baseline;" src="/aviationsite/MediaAssets/Airport_Vaccine_2.jpg" /><br>“Airport employees are part of our critical infrastructure," said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “ It is clear that protecting public health is also the fastest way to economic recovery. The vaccine s delivered here at Sky Harbor will help our employees, and those that they come into contact with, be protected from the COVID-19 virus."<br><br>The event is providing the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine free of charge to all airport badge holders. Any airport contractor or volunteer who holds a Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport badge or credential is eligible. In addition, badged employees and contractors at Phoenix Deer Valley and Phoenix Goodyear Airports are eligible. This includes, but is not limited to employees of airlines, shops and restaurants, ground transportation providers, other service providers, construction companies and more. Employees are encouraged to schedule an appointment at the end of their shift. <br><br>“Phoenix Sky Harbor is one of our city's largest revenue generators that has been greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, said District 1 Phoenix City Councilmember Ann O'Brien. “Making the COVID-19 vaccine available to all airport workers, including the staff of Phoenix Deer Valley Airport, the busiest general aviation airport in the nation, is a big step toward normalcy."  <br><br><img style="margin:5px 0px;width:300px;height:170px;" src="/aviationsite/MediaAssets/Airport_Vaccine_1.jpg" /><br>The event is also open to any family member or dependent of airport employees. Appointments for employees and their families are recommended, though walk-ups will be available.<br><br>“Our Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport is the largest hub of jobs in the state and its success rests on the hard work and dedication of thousands of workers," said District 5 Phoenix City Councilmember Betty Guardado. “They have felt the effects of this pandemic firsthand, many being laid-off, furloughed or even fired as air travel came to a virtual halt. But today, thanks to the national vaccine rollout, more Americans are traveling and our airport is seeing a steady increase in flights. Now is the time to ensure that all our airport employees have access to the vaccine, to protect themselves, their families, coworkers, and our airport guests. I am honored to be here today, and I am thankful to the leadership of Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego and the efforts of our partners at Maricopa County. It's time for all of us to do our part, roll up our sleeve, and get our shot!" <br><br>This vaccine dispensing event is a collaborative effort between the city of Phoenix, Maricopa County, Curative, and employers at Phoenix Sky Harbor, Phoenix Deer Valley and Phoenix Goodyear airports. <br><br>“It's an honor for Curative to deliver vaccination deployment for the Phoenix Sky Harbor. This is a significant moment in history, and we are ready to bring these life-saving vaccines to people who need them," said Isaac Turner, CIO and co-founder of Curative. “Curative has disrupted the traditional healthcare delivery system by rapidly scaling COVID-19 testing at thousands of sites across the country in a matter of months and administering the flu vaccine – now, we are eager to put our proven model to work for the COVID-19 vaccine. We're building on everything we learned over the last year at Curative and we look forward to making healthcare more accessible to all: both now and in the future as we evolve as a company."<br><br>Over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Phoenix Aviation Department has been committed to ensuring that its facilities are clean, safe, and welcoming for airport employees and customers.

Working Together to Help Travelershttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/aviation/1833Aviation3/24/2021 9:45:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1833/newsroom_aviation_066.jpgWorking Together to Help Travelers<div class="ExternalClassAE0CA0D21D4246B380B54C66F6665D03"><html>​<strong><em>America's Friendliest Airport® develops Android version of important app</em></strong><br><br>Early in the pandemic, the aviation industry realized the need to communicate health and safety requirements and information about COVID-19. Because there wasn't one standardized place to look for information, under the leadership of the ACI World IT Standing Committee's ACRIS (Airport Community Recommend Information Services) Group, ACI, multiple airports and World Business Partners worked together to come up with a solution to help passengers get COVID-19 related health and safety measures at arriving and departing airports. Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport has played an integral role in this group, and the Airport's Technology team has helped to develop an app that provides travelers with the critical information they need.<br><br>The group, which was led by San Francisco International Airport, focused on two main initiatives. The first was to develop an airports-only application to allow airports to enter and update their own COVID-19 health and safety measures. This data is published in real-time and allows airlines and third parties to access the data from a single source.<br><br><img style="margin:5px;width:400px;height:280px;" src="/aviationsite/MediaAssets/PressRelease_Check%26Fly.jpg" />The second initiative was to develop a passenger-facing app. Last year, <a href="https://aci.aero/" target="_blank">Airports Council International (ACI) World</a> launched an app called Check & Fly. The app, which was developed by Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA), was for iOS operating systems, meaning that it was only available to Apple users. Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport's Technology team saw the need for ensuring that Android users had access to this critical information, and therefore, developed an Android version of the app. This version was recently released by ACI World to the Google Play Store.<br><br>The free app provides users with comprehensive information about what they can expect when they travel through a particular airport. The app includes information about whether health screenings are required, what measures the airports have put into place regarding sanitation, what services they can expect when they arrive, and much more. Users simply download the app and then can select a departure or destination airport. It's a helpful resource for travelers as they navigate travel during the COVID-19 pandemic.<br><br>As of March 2021, the COVID-19 health and safety information from 291 airports is digitally accessible through the iOS and Android mobile apps. Visit the <a href="https://apps.apple.com/ca/app/check-fly/id1520489875" target="_blank">Apple app store</a> or <a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=aero.aci.checkfly" target="_blank">Google Play</a> to download and start using this app today.<br><br><div style="text-align:center;">– 30 –</div><br><strong>Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, <em>America's Friendliest Airport®</em></strong>, has an annual economic impact of more than $38 billion.

Facilities must also demonstrate that they have established and maintained a cleaning and disinfecting program to minimize risks of infectious diseases; have employed the proper protocols to clean and disinfect facilities; and have staff who are trained for outbreak and infectious disease preparation and response.<br><br>“Meeting the highest industry standards is a commitment that Phoenix's airports consistently work to achieve," said Vice Mayor Thelda Williams, Chair of the Transportation, Infrastructure and Innovation Subcommittee. “Earning the GBAC STAR™ accreditation is the gold standard in a performance-based program and it demonstrates our commitment to safety and preparedness as we build confidence with our passengers, customers and employees in our facilities and procedures."<br><br>Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Phoenix Sky Harbor, Phoenix Deer Valley, and Phoenix Goodyear airports have employed a number of initiatives to ensure a safe, welcoming and healthy environment for those coming through the airports. This includes a robust cleaning program, the installation of plexiglass and UV-C LED sanitizing lights on escalator handrails and more.<br><span id="ms-rterangepaste-start"></span><img style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:211px;vertical-align:baseline;" class="" src="/aviationsite/MediaAssets/Cleaning%20the%20PHX%20Sky%20Train.jpg" /><span id="ms-rterangepaste-end"></span><br>“Receiving the GBAC STAR™ facility accreditation at all three City of Phoenix airports is an outstanding achievement," said District 8 Phoenix Councilmember Carlos Garcia, who represents the district where Sky Harbor is located. “Travelers should feel assured that our facilities are clean and safe, with staff specifically trained to help stop the spread of COVID-19."<br><br>“Phoenix Sky Harbor and the Deer Valley and Goodyear airports continue to provide world-class safe, clean facilities and service to our customers," said District 3 Phoenix City Councilwoman and member of the Transportation, Infrastructure and Innovation Subcommittee Debra Stark. “I am very proud of the entire Aviation team for earning the GBAC STAR™ accreditation."<br><br>For additional on what Phoenix Sky Harbor is doing to keep travelers safe, visit <a href="https://www.skyharbor.com/BeforeTraveling/health-information" target="_blank">https://www.skyharbor.com/BeforeTraveling/health-information</a>.

(Nasdaq: XSPA) (“XpresSpa" or the “Company"), a health and wellness company, today announced with the City of Phoenix Aviation Department for an XpresCheck™ COVID-19 testing facility at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. <br><br><img style="margin:5px;width:250px;height:183px;" src="/aviationsite/MediaAssets/IMG_0160.jpg" />The Company is converting a closed urgent care medical clinic, located pre-security in Terminal 4, which is adjacent to the PHX Sky Train® corridor, to an XpresCheck Testing Facility. This facility will host six separate testing rooms with an anticipated capacity to administer over 400 tests per day. COVID-19 testing options will include a rapid molecular COVID-19 test, the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Test, and the Blood Antibody Test. All three tests are similarly offered at XpresCheck locations in JFK International Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport, and Boston Logan International Airport.<br><br>"We are delighted to launch XpresCheck at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, which will be our fourth COVID-19 testing facility in the U.S., and to be commencing operations ahead of Thanksgiving, which has historically begun the busiest travel period of the year," said Doug Satzman, XpresSpa CEO. “The infrastructure we have built with XpresCheck is laying the groundwork for much more than coronavirus testing. We are prepared to address second and third waves of the virus, in addition to any other easily transmittable virus in the future. While our current focus is providing convenient, reliable COVID-19 testing, our long-term goal is to become the leading brand in the rapidly emerging travel health and wellness category by helping people manage medical conditions during travel."<br><br>“Widespread testing is one of the best ways to fight Covid-19. The City of Phoenix continues to provide testing opportunities for all residents and looks for new, innovative ways to assist in slowing the spread. The city's newest partnership with XpresCheck will offer testing for airport employees, travelers and members of the public. These services will help restore a bit of normalcy and convenience to the airline industry by providing an extra layer of security and comfort," said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego.<br><br>The City of Phoenix is also using Federal CARES Act funding, through the end of December, to supplement the cost of testing for Phoenix residents who do not have health insurance that covers the service. Residents can pre-book their appointments in advance or come in for a walk-up visit. XpresCheck will verify the patient's residency at the time of the test. <br><br>“A COVID-19 testing site in the airport terminal may give passengers peace of mind about their own health, fellow passengers and can help to boost travel," said Thelda Williams, Phoenix City Councilwoman – District 1 and Chair of the Transportation, Infrastructure and Innovation Subcommittee. “Phoenix Sky Harbor is a gateway to Arizona and a major economic engine for the state; partnerships like this add another layer of health safety."<br><br>“The launch of XpresCheck at Sky Harbor is beneficial to our local community," said Carlos Garcia, Phoenix City Councilperson – District 8, which includes Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. “The city of Phoenix has been focused on ensuring that testing is available to its residents. This is another avenue to make it easier for our residents to get tested as well as for those visiting the state."<br><br>“This is an important partnership that will benefit not only travelers and airport employees but city of Phoenix residents," said Laura Pastor, Phoenix City Councilwoman – District 4 and member of the Transportation, Infrastructure and Innovation Subcommittee. “I'm pleased that we will be able to offer free testing to city of Phoenix residents due to CARES Act funding that we received earlier this year. This is another way we are making it easier for our residents to get the testing they need."<br><br><strong>About XpresSpa Group, Inc. </strong><br>XpresSpa Group, Inc.
