      Getting to Grand Rapids

      Grand Rapids is both accessible and convenient for meeting attendees. Our Gerald R. Ford International Airport was ranked #1 in North America (by size) in 2015 – and it’s gotten even better since then, adding new carriers and undergoing a $45 million transformation.

      Lines are short – visitors pass through security in less than five minutes, on average – and hospitality is abundant. In addition to a Visitor Information Center and roaming Certified Tourism Ambassadors, planners can arrange for Experience Grand Rapids staff to greet attendees coming off their planes.

      Fly Safe. Fly Ford.

      The Gerald R. Ford International Airport is the first airport in Michigan to earn the Global Biorisk Advisory Council™ STAR® Facility Accreditation status from the ISSA -- the worldwide cleaning industry association. 

      In addition to being the "gold standard" for cleaning and and sanitation, the airport introduced a Fly Safe. Fly Ford. campaign in 2020 to educate travelers on new precautions for their health and restore confidence in air travel. New safety features at the airport include continuous cleaning protocols, hand sanitizer stations, plexiglass dividers at interaction points, visual cues to reinforce physical distancing, and PPE available in concession areas and through vending machines. Passengers, guests and airport personnel are asked to wear facial coverings throughout the terminal.

      The Ford airport also offers COVID-19 testing in the Economy Lot, in partnership with TACKL Health. No appointments are needed and drive-up testing options include: Rapid Molecular PCR tests (results in 30 minutes), Standard Molecular PCR Tests (results in 24-72 hours) and Rapid antigen and antibody tests (results in 15 minutes). The site is open fro 4 AM-8 PM every day. More information is available on the TACKL Health website. Explore more airport safety measures and travel tips.
