The aviation industry has been a leader in implementing health and safety measures for its travelers since the pandemic changed our world. And travelers are learning to adapt to the new requirements in order to fly.
With new rules in place – and the compliance that has had to occur – air travel numbers continue to grow.
At AVL, more people flew in October than in any other month since mid-March – an early estimate shows we served approximately 88,000 total passengers. This is a huge climb from April’s 2,400 total passengers.
And the news for our region’s airport is even better: our monthly passenger numbers (by percentage compared to last year) have significantly outpaced the national average since June.
Airports are part of the nation’s critical infrastructure, and must remain open and operational. We are proud to be able to do that with health and safety top of mind, and we remain ready when you are.
