WASHINGTON – Airports Council International – North America (ACI-NA) President and CEO Kevin Burke today sent a letter to the Secretaries of State, Commerce, and Transportation on the need to work with industry and the Canadian government to begin the process of re-opening the border between the United States and Canada. ACI-NA is the trade association representing commercial service airports in the United States and Canada.
“I am writing on behalf of airports in the United States and Canada to express our support for your efforts to responsibly reopen travel between two countries that share a border and whose economies are deeply entwined,” Burke wrote. “Airports in both countries have worked closely with federal, state, provincial, and territorial governments to establish and enforce strict health and sanitation protocols to limit the spread of COVID-19 and protect the travelers and workers who pass through these facilities. From the very early days of the pandemic, we have collaborated closely with government officials to do everything possible to ensure the health and safety of airports, and we are eager to partner with governments in both countries to resume safe and responsible travel between the United States and Canada.”
