Passengers Tested Positive in Canada for COVID-19 After Being on Flight from Phoenix Sky Harborhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/aviation/1022Aviation3/9/2020 9:45:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1022/newsroom_aviation_054.jpgPassengers Tested Positive in Canada for COVID-19 After Being on Flight from Phoenix Sky Harbor<div class="ExternalClassAA1633AD2461482B9AE7E430BB06417E"><html>Phoenix, Arizona, USA: Two Canadian passengers who flew on WestJet from Phoenix to Toronto on February 28, 2020 have tested positive for the coronavirus, (COVID-19) according to Canadian Health Officials. 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.

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.

Convenience. Reliability. Value. These are critical factors the Wall Street Journal looked at when conducting its annual Airport Rankings study. It examined 14 different measures within these categories, as well as surveying more than 2,500 subscribers. The results found that among other things, Phoenix Sky Harbor's short taxi-to-takeoff times, restaurants and fast WiFi makes it the top airport in the country.  <br> <br> “Sky Harbor is the gateway to our state and the largest economic engine in Arizona," said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego.  “It's wonderful to see the Airport being recognized for its focus on customer service, reliability, and convenience on a national platform. This is a solid testament to both our airport employees and the hundreds of volunteer Navigators who donate their time at Sky Harbor." <br> <br> Phoenix Sky Harbor ranked particularly high for its average Yelp rating for restaurants. America's Friendliest Airport is also America's Tastiest Airport with local favorites like Barrio Café, La Grande Orange, Four Peaks Brewery, Matt's Big Breakfast, San Tan Brewery, the Tavern and others in the terminals as well as nationally-recognized options available.  <br> <br> Phoenix Sky Harbor also saw a major improvement in its WiFi speeds, something that is very important to travelers. PHX was ranked second among the largest airports for WiFi service. <br> <br> With great weather, PHX also had favorable on-time arrivals as well as low taxi-to-takeoff times, making it a very reliable airport.<br> <br> With a focus on providing world-class customer service to every customer every day, Phoenix Sky Harbor currently has a nearly $2 billion capital investment program underway to help elevate the passenger experience. Among these projects is the modernization of Terminal 3. Earlier this year, a new South Concourse opened with all new shops, local restaurants, customer amenities like access to charging stations from nearly every seat, a Delta Sky Club, a Children's Play Area and more. The renovated North Concourse will open in 2020, thereby completing the project.  Also in process is the extension of the PHX Sky Train® to the Rental Car Center and a new eight-gate concourse to be occupied by Southwest Airlines at the Airport's busiest terminal, Terminal 4. <br> <br> These projects are in addition to the many services and amenities the airport already offers travelers, including award-winning shopping, one of the largest airport art programs in the country, the ability to check security wait times before coming to the Airport and upon arrival, a large volunteer program that provides friendly and helpful service to travelers, a dog therapy program called the Navigator Buddies that delights travelers, nursing stations both before and after security, pet parks at all terminals, and an urgent care facility, among others.  <br> <br> The airport also ranked high for its proximity and ease of use when traveling to and from downtown Phoenix. <br> <br> For more information about Phoenix Sky Harbor's current capital investment projects and services and amenities, please visit  <a target="_blank" href="https://www.skyharbor.com/">skyharbor.com</a> . <br> <br> Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, America's Friendliest Airport® , has an annual economic impact of more than $38 billion.

Modern Terminal 3 Home of Stained Glass Revivalhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/aviation/566Aviation11/12/2019 7:00:00 AMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/566/newsroom_aviation_047.jpgModern Terminal 3 Home of Stained Glass Revival<div class="ExternalClass9BDFEBA3FF094BD69FE8AE66459DE9DA"><html> <p>PHOENIX – Terminal 3 at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport is still undergoing its modernization program but a classic look will complement its new appearance with the debut of a new stained glass wall. <br><br>The east arrivals plaza on the north curb is the site of the art installation by Ken Toney, an Arizona glass artist who for decades created architectural stained glass installations. Toney is responsible for the 1,400-square-foot stained glass ceiling that was in Terminal 3 from when it opened in 1979 to when that section of the terminal closed for modernization in late 2016.<br><br>Now, the glass installation lives again as it is repurposed for this new artwork.<br><br>Toney is known for the creation of uniquely designed stained glass windows in several Phoenix-area churches and the original Maricopa County Courthouse. <br><br>The type of art glass Toney uses is called <em>Dalle de verre</em>, which is also known as slab glass. The material is substantial: It's produced by casting molten glass into 1-inch-thick slabs, 8-by-12 inches. The edges are often chipped or faceted to increase the reflection or refraction of light passing through. Glass window and wall panels are fabricated by arranging cut shapes of slab glass into the desired pattern and then a matrix of epoxy, silica and aggregate is poured between the pieces to adhere them together. Once dried and cured, the panels are strong and durable and can be arranged in a metal framework. <br><br>The geometric design of the new stained glass wall is in the same symmetrical arrangement as when it was a ceiling inside Terminal 3. It will now be a major way-finding exterior element, viewable on the north curb of the terminal.<br><br>This installation is a part of the permanent Phoenix Airport Museum collection, which, at more than 900 pieces, is one of the largest airport art collections in the United States.</p> <p> <br> <strong>Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, America's Friendliest Airport®</strong>, has an annual economic impact of more than $38 billion.
