Travel Stress Free this Thanksgivinghttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/aviation/1631Aviation11/19/2020 7:00:00 AMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1631/newsroom_aviation_060.jpgTravel Stress Free this Thanksgiving<div class="ExternalClass5BF35D66BCA248E9B75ACD390991236D"><html>PHOENIX – Like so many things this year, Thanksgiving travel is going to look and feel different from previous years. It is usually one of the busiest travel holidays at our Airport and this year, while a little different, will no doubt still be a busy Thanksgiving weekend. If you are planning to travel out of town, here are some tips to keep in mind for a safe and stress-free trip:<br><br><ul><li><strong>Tip #1 – Use the 44th St. PHX Sky Train® Station to pick-up or drop-off travelers and avoid terminal curb congestion.</strong> The 44th St. PHX Sky Train® Station is centrally located and can easily be reached from highways, major streets and the Valley Metro Rail. It features a <a href="https://www.skyharbor.com/ParkingTransportation/CellPhoneLots" target="_blank">Cell Phone Waiting Lot</a> and it provides easy access to all airport terminals via the free <a href="https://www.skyharbor.com/ParkingTransportation/PublicTransportation/LightRailConnection" target="_blank">PHX Sky Train®</a>.<br></li><li><strong>Tip # 2 – Check your flight status and security checkpoint wait times before arriving at the airport.</strong> Flight status can be checked with your airline and security checkpoint wait times are available on the homepage of <a href="https://www.skyharbor.com/" target="_blank">skyharbor.com</a> and on the flight information displays at the airport once you arrive.<br></li><li><strong>Tip # 3 – If you're planning to park at the airport, book your parking ahead of time with <a href="https://www.skyharbor.com/ParkingTransportation/parking" target="_blank">Sky Harbor Discount Parking</a> to save time and money.</strong> Our parking options provide you with the most convenient access to the terminals. Save money while arriving to the airport in the safety of your own vehicle and avoid the last-minute hassle of figuring out where to park.<br></li><li><strong>Tip #4 – Be on the lookout for overhead freeway signs.</strong> The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is the busiest day of the year on our roadways. The signs will alert you to traffic, accidents and provide alternate routes where possible. Be sure to check <a href="http://www.az511.com/" target="_blank">www.az511.com</a> for the latest traffic information.<br></li><li><strong>Tip #5 – Review the TSA requirements for carry-on and checked baggage.</strong> It doesn't hurt to reference the TSA <a href="https://www.tsa.gov/travel/travel-tips/travel-checklist" target="_blank">Travel Checklist</a> and see what you can and can't pack in your suitcase including that turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce.<br></li><li><strong>Tip # 6 – Lastly, be sure to give yourself plenty of time.</strong> Plan to arrive at least two hours prior to your departure time and be sure to bring a face covering. Travelers are required to wear a face covering inside all airport facilities including the rental car shuttle buses. If you forget your face covering or need other personal protective equipment (PPE), you can purchase one at a PPE vending machine or at a retail store or find masks available outside the security checkpoints. </li></ul><br>If you haven't traveled by air in the past eight months, you can find all the information you need about Sky Harbor's health and safety measures by visiting the <a href="https://www.skyharbor.com/BeforeTraveling/health-information" target="_blank">PHX – Here for You</a> page on skyharbor.com. We have implemented increased sanitization, including installing UV-C Light technology which constantly cleans escalator handrails. Restrooms provide touch-free handwashing facilities. We have also installed distancing markers and plexiglass barriers throughout our terminals. And face coverings are required throughout all public airport facilities for the safety of all travelers. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) also launched a <a href="https://www.transportation.gov/flyhealthy" target="_blank">new online resource</a> for travelers to learn how to Fly Healthy during the holiday season. Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving. <br><div style="text-align:center;">#​## </div><br><strong>Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, America's Friendliest Airport®</strong>, has an annual economic impact of more than $38 billion. Every day approximately 1,200 aircraft and more than 125,000 passengers arrive and depart at Sky Harbor. PHX Sky Harbor is funded with Airport revenue. No tax dollars are used to support the Airport.<br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/aviationNewsaviationPhoenix Sky Harbor at DuskAviationThanksgiving, Thanksgiving travel, holiday travel, travel, travel tipsMain Aviation PIO MailskyharborPIO@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/8/Aviation2.pngPHXSkyHarbor

Councilwoman Pastor Applauds Eight Years of Perfect Scores on the Municipal Equality Indexhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/district-4/1648City Council District 412/3/2020 4:30:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1648/Newsroom_Council_News_04.jpgCouncilwoman Pastor Applauds Eight Years of Perfect Scores on the Municipal Equality Index<div class="ExternalClassFB8A9F02165D4B0A9FD6271762672C5A"><html>​Today, the City of Phoenix received a perfect score of 100 for its efforts to ensure equal treatment for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community. 2020 marks the eighth year in a row that Phoenix has received a perfect score. <br><br>“Year after year, this perfect score is an example of Phoenicians embracing and celebrating our city's diversity. Phoenix's broad diversity is what makes our city a wonderful place to live and work for everyone. The momentum we have had since the 2012 expansion of the city's anti-discrimination ordinance has been extremely promising. <br><br>While the ordinance makes its unlawful to discriminate against people based on sexual orientation, gender identity or disability in the areas of employment, public accommodations, housing and government contracts, discrimination still occurs. My office is proud to stand with the LGBTQ community as an ally every single day. Our fight for equality is far from over, but its important we continue to make strides and milestones, like this perfect score."<br><br>About the Municipal Equality Index (MEI): The MEI examines how inclusive municipal laws, policies, and services are of LGBTQ people who live and work there. Cities are rated based on non-discrimination laws, the municipality as an employer, municipal services, law enforcement and the city leadership's public position on equality.<br><br><p>To access the full report, visit <a href="https://www.hrc.org/mei" target="_blank">hrc.org/mei</a>.​<br></p></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district4News
