Covid-19: What to Expect at the Airport
SRQ has taken steps to fight the spread of COVID-19
On-Demand Eco-friendly Sedans, Luxury Sedans, and SUVs are available just outside the baggage claim area on the west end of the terminal. SRQ’s select on-demand transportation is provided by ALD Limo and is available for all arriving flights. A uniformed starter will connect you with a luxury vehicle of your choice, provide you with a fixed rate, based on your destination, load your luggage, and get you on your way. Download the ALD Limo free mobile app to find guaranteed rates. You may contact ALD Limo Premium Limousine Service at 855-799-LIMO, or via ALD Limo.
ALD Limo has installed a new layer of protection inside every vehicle – sneeze guards. The protective screens will stand between a passenger and a driver. Vehicles are sanitized after each customer and face masks are required for drivers.
