With the updated Indiana Stay-At-Home Order, many travelers and their loved ones are wondering what that means for the Indianapolis International Airport (IND). The airport is defined as an essential infrastructure. That means that IND remains open and operational, though in many cases airlines have reduced their schedules. Travelers are strongly advised to check with their airline before heading to the airport. Additionally, public health guidance recommends only flying for essential travel.
In addition to the continuation of flight operations at IND, businesses that are part of the usual airport operations are also exempt from the orders. Concession stores, parking offerings, and ground transportation providers all continue operating, though in some cases with adjusted schedules or protocols.
Individuals are also still allowed to travel to IND to pick-up or drop-off friends and loved ones, but the Stay-At-Home Order and public health guidelines remain, and it is recommended that those guests remain in their cars and practice social distancing rather than going into the terminal to meet their parties.
