Weather conditions may at times affect airport operations. RDM does not usually close during most inclement weather conditions. The RDM terminal building will remain open at all times unless damaged or in case of an emergency.
Flight delays, cancellations and re-routing decisions are made by the individual airline on a flight-by-flight basis. FAA air traffic controllers may also play a role in an airlines decision-making process. Information on a flight’s status is best found on the airline’s website.
RDM does not accept any responsibility or liability for delays to its parking services as a result of circumstances beyond its control including (but not limited to) traffic congestion, road accidents, flight delays, security alerts, and severe weather conditions.
Road construction and issues could also lead to traffic delays so be prepared and plan ahead!

With a surge in cases expected to intensify later this month, officials across the region are urging people to take steps to reduce the spread of contamination to alleviate pressures on our hospitals. Consistent with this approach, the City of Redmond owned Redmond Municipal Airport (RDM) will immediately begin encouraging all airport passengers to do a 14-day in home self-quarantine upon arrival in Central Oregon.
“These actions are difficult, but they will help flatten the curve and lay the groundwork for a quicker recovery,” states Mayor George Endicott.
With the virus spreading more each day, this recommendation is being made regardless of the originating airport. RDM is currently experience a 90% reduction in travelers passing through the terminal, down from a daily average of 1,500.
Individuals who develop symptoms during their voluntarily self-quarantine should contact their medical provider immediately. This recommendation is another important measure to protect the health and safety of our community.
