Passenger traffic at Syracuse's Hancock Airport predictably took a sharp decline in March due to COVID-19 related travel restrictions and traveler comfort levels. The Syracuse Regional Airport Authority officials say in a release that 47 percent fewer people passed through the terminal compared to March 2019.
Federal and state orders mean the airport remains open for essential travel only. Airlines have also dramatically modified their schedules. Those traveling in the coming weeks are strongly urged to check with their airline to confirm the status of their flight.
