In 2020, the usual hustle and bustle of holiday travel at the Gerald R. Ford International Airport is anything but.
“Last year at this time around 7,000 people came through the building. Now, we’re going to expect around 3,000 to 4,000.”
That’s roughly half the usual holiday traffic. It’s welcomed business in the midst of a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic.
Alex Peric is Gerald R. Ford International Airport’s COO. “We are experiencing an uptick from the average day. So, our average day now is around 2,500 passengers through the terminal building.”
