Erlanger, Ky. (November 19, 2020) – Airports and airlines across the country are working together to prepare for the holiday travel season. The Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) expects November and December to be the busiest months for passenger traffic since the pandemic started with the more popular destinations being Florida, Arizona, Cancun, and the Rocky Mountain region.
The busiest days for the Thanksgiving holiday will be Friday 11/20; Tuesday, 11/24; Wednesday, 11/25; Saturday 11/28; Sunday, 11/29; and Monday, 11/30.

Specific changes and updates passengers will see at CVG:
- Frequent cleaning and disinfecting of high-traffic areas and touchpoints including restrooms and handrails, and aircraft (which is done by the airlines). A new product enhancement at the airport is the use of SafetyNet, a two-step process that first applies an electrostatic disinfection followed up by an anti-microbial solution that binds to and protects surfaces for 30+ days.
- Plexiglass guards installed at ticketing counters, security checkpoint, concessions locations, and gate areas.
