BLOOMINGTON – Passenger traffic at Central Illinois Regional Airport went up again last month and continues to improve as the summer progresses.
CIRA deputy director Fran Strebing spoke with WJBC’s Marc Strauss.
“We are now comparing numbers from 2021 to our 2019 numbers and we are at 80% of 2019 numbers, which was a good year for us, so we feel really good about that,” Strebing said.
Strebing says many people are heading to leisure destinations and others are flying to reconnect with family and friends.
Business travel is slowly returning, but the Bloomington airport hopes those numbers start to improve after Labor Day.
