PUNTA GORDA AIRPORT IS OPEN!

Charlotte County Airport Authority and PGD staff are continually monitoring the COVID-19 coronavirus and are taking the appropriate actions to ensure the safety of the passengers, employees, tenants and visitors that utilize PGD.  

The Florida Governor’s Executive Order Number 20-80 directs incoming passengers from New York’s Tri-State Area to isolate or quarantine for 14 days.

3/25/20 UPDATE

PGD is supporting our local Florida Department of Health as it implements screening protocols starting tonight for incoming passengers from the following New York state destinations: Albany, Elmira, Niagara Falls, Plattsburgh, Rochester, Syracuse and Stewart/Newburgh.

Flight attendants will distribute a Florida Department of Health (DOH) form to each passenger to fill out before arriving in Punta Gorda.  DOH representatives will meet passengers in a separate area to process their forms and provide further direction.
