MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Due to a reduction in passenger traffic as concerns about the COVID-19 virus have increased, Memphis International Airport is making some changes to its operations.

If you are heading through Memphis international here’s what you can expect.

  • C checkpoint temporarily closed: Beginning Friday, March 13 all checkpoint operations will take place through the B checkpoint. TSA has indicated that this is best allocation of their resources and the most efficient way of managing checkpoint operations. The C checkpoint will be available for reactivation if necessary.
  • Maggie O’Shea’s, Moe’s to temporarily close: Maggie O’Shea’s in B Ticketing Lobby and Moe’s in C Concourse restaurants will be temporarily closed, and resume operations in the future.
  • Airlines remain operational at MEM: Airlines will continue to operate at MEM, with no reported cancellations due to COVID-19.
