Visit Naperville – Air travel just became more convenient for planning meetings and events
Above / Naperville is pleased to promote 19 lodging choices, all convenient to many happenings and local attractions. Both Chicago O’Hare Airport (ORD) and Chicago Midway Airport (MDW) are conveniently located less than an hour’s drive from Naperville.
Our community welcomes news received today from the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA) regarding the COVID-19 testing requirement for travel.
AHLA President & CEO Chip Rogers released the following statement on June 10, 2022, after the Administration announced it was lifting its requirement for travelers to test negative for COVID-19 before entering the US, beginning at midnight Sunday, June 12.
“Today’s announcement is a significant win for hotels and the broader travel industry. AHLA consistently called on the Administration and Congress to lift this testing requirement, which was out of date and had a chilling effect on inbound international travel to the US,” stated Rogers. “Lifting the requirement will make travel easier, facilitating more international visitors and helping hotels continue on the road to recovery, especially as we approach peak travel season this summer.”
Rogers credited Senators Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.), Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.), Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), and Rick Scott (R-Fla.) for their leadership in pushing for this critical change.
