At YWG, we are committed to enhancing our cleaning practices and exceeding all public health guidelines to provide a safe environment for all.
The global pandemic introduced many new realities in the air travel industry. Seemingly overnight, it challenged us to modify our processes to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and implement best practices to protect all travellers, visitors and staff at Winnipeg Richardson International Airport. Many of these practices are here to stay and are continually being expanded upon as part of a comprehensive plan to make the airport environment as safe and secure as possible and instill traveller confidence each step of the way.
YWG Clean Program
The YWG Clean Program represents our ongoing commitment to help keep the community we serve safe by enhancing cleaning practices to meet the highest standard in light of COVID-19. The program demonstrates actions taken to date, as a result of the pandemic, to provide a clean and well-kept environment, with ongoing guidance from public health authorities. We continue to work with our airport partners to meet and exceed all public health protocols, improve upon each aspect of a traveller’s journey and implement additional measures to enhance safety and best practices at the airport. Travel demand is currently low, but the airport is being monitored with increased diligence to safely support those who need to travel at this time and to be ready to accommodate increased volumes in the future. A number of safety strategies are currently in place to manage high traffic zones or queues and support the many different ways people interact with and enjoy their time at the airport.
Coming Soon Initiatives
The YWG Clean Program is continually being expanded upon with new initiatives coming soon to YWG. We look forward to rolling out additional measures to help further minimize touch encounters and enhance aspects of the traveller experience under new, revised conditions. Keep an eye out on our social media channels for YWG Clean Program announcements and an inventory of the latest safety methods, strategies and actions can be found below.
