El Paso International Airport Sees Largest Drop in Travelers in 9 Years

Airports across the country are seeing fewer travelers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Less travelers made their way through the El Paso International Airport this April than at any point in the last nine years.

Empty airports have become a common site during this time. More people cancelling trips means less people flying. Comparing the number of travelers since 2011, this is the first time numbers have been this low.

There were only 24,375 travelers in the month of April compared to 148,618 in March, 231,314 in February and 248,347 in January of this year.
