Our systems meet or exceed industry filtration standards, meaning we filter the air at a recommended level between “Superior Commercial Buildings” and “Hospital Inpatient Care.” Additionally, 60 percent of air handlers installed in the airport contain ultraviolet light which provides extra protection to kill bacteria and viruses.

11/23/2020  Being a Good Traveler

2019 Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory
In 2015, the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority (Airport Authority) launched The Good Traveler program at San Diego International Airport (SAN) to provide an easy, affordable, and meaningful way for interested passengers to make their travel more sustainable. Through the program, individuals can purchase carbon offsets online, at select terminal concessions, and through the airport parking reservation and payment system with proceeds going toward conservation projects that help counteract the effect of greenhouse gas emissions on the environment. Since launching five years ago, the program now includes 17 participating airports in North America that have collectively offset nearly 670 million miles of travel.
