Virginia Airports Saw Drastic Decline in Passengers for April

Airports across the state saw significant drops in passenger numbers during March and April, while most people sheltered in place and canceled travel plans during the pandemic.

Airlines also scheduled approximately 70% fewer departures for May 2020 as compared to May 2019, said Steve Sterling, Norfolk International Airport deputy executive director for administration and operations.

Richmond International Airport April statistics are expected to be released on May 26, said Troy M. Bell, Capital Region Airport Commission director of marketing and air service development/PIO.

“As far as April, we won’t have final data until mid-May, but we anticipate a passenger drop in the neighborhood of 90% to 95% versus April 2019,” he said in mid-April. “People have been instructed to stay home because of the COVID-19 pandemic and there is little demand for air travel in the U.S. at this time.”
