With the new U.S. rules for international
travel will covid testing centers remain
open? There is no answer to that
but other countries have different requirements
so it seems that these centers
will remain open for the near future.
Covid testing centers will remain
open at the airports until September.

NEW: The TSA has increased fines
for mask violations and extend necessity
to wearing into 2022. Masks are required
at all times in every building at the
Port Authority airports.
FAA Statement on Wearing Masks in
Airports and On Planes The Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),
the Transportation Security Administration
(TSA), and the U.S. Department of
Transportation (DOT) remind the traveling
public that at this time if you travel,
you are still required to wear a mask on
planes, buses, trains, and other forms
of public transportation traveling into,
within, or out of the United States, and
in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports
British Airways at JFK Terminal
& held a big celebration welcoming
back British and international
travelers to JFK Airport. It
was a happy, warm and exciting
event with hugs, kisses and claps
from everyone as passengers exited
the arrivals hall.
The influx of travellers will
bring us all closer to normalcy and
bring in billions of dollars in tourist
and hospitality dollars. Airport
concessions in particular at the
airports will reap the benefits. The
entire workforce at all the airports
will benefit from increasing number
and types of jobs available.
It is said that the lack of response
to job opportunities is
lackluster. Some feel that there is
a sense that people are looking
for more than just a paycheck. But
studies show that they are looking
for more personal fulfillment.
Today there are a wide variety
of positions in the aviation field,
and opportunities to explore more
jobs. More companies are offering
additional benefits such as
schooling, and more PTO to accommodate
the pressures some
have with childcare.
It is a great time to begin a new
career or go back to school. The
aviation community needs more
qualified people in cargo, piloting,
freight, hospitality and more.
