Airport Emergencies

In the event of an emergency, the District’s primary responsibility is safe and orderly airport operations. Media requests will be handled as quickly as possible by the Communications Department. During emergency situations, please contact the airport’s Communications team at 864.968.4274 or [email protected] for event updates and to request information. Only the Communication Department is authorized to speak on behalf of the District. Therefore, please do not contact other District departments requesting information. If an emergency occurs at GSP, the District will experience a high volume of media inquiries. To ensure you receive the most accurate information:
  • Follow GSP’s Twitter account: @GSPAirport
  • E-mail a request to be added to the media relations distribution list at [email protected]
  • If the need for a media briefing arises, the airport will share the media briefing location and time via Twitter at @GSPAirport and via email press releases.
  • During emergencies, media calls will be returned individually, as District staff are able to provide information.

While at the Airport

Media outlets are welcome in all areas of the airport that are accessible to the public including the ticket lobby, baggage claim, parking lots and roadways. The terminal concourses, airfield areas, buildings and land will require a personal escort by a credentialed member of the District’s communications team.

Restaurants, shops, lounges, airline and rental car operating spaces, and all other tenant leasehold areas are private. Permission must be obtained from those entities before filming inside spaces leased by third-parties.

Equipment and/or personnel at the security checkpoint may not be filmed or photographed.  In the event that enhanced security procedures are mandated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Transportation Security Administration (TSA) or other regulatory authority, there may be additional restrictions on media access.

Interior building live shots are permitted with wireless technology. Cords may not be used inside buildings. Do not block egress or walking paths. Media visits must not impede passenger traffic or airport operations.

Requests to film from the airfield at GSP are handled on a case-by-case basis. Decisions are made based on the airport’s manpower to accommodate such requests, as well as operational and safety considerations.
