SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC News)– The holiday season has arrived and usually that would mean more people flying home to be with family. However, due to the pandemic, that is not the case this year.
In Syracuse, students were moved online and people encouraged to not to travel for Thanksgiving if possible. This meant less people going through the airport in what normally is the busiest time of year.
Executive Director of Syracuse Airport, Jason Terreri says numbers have drastically gone down this year. “We see a modest bump next week, but most people are staying home” says Terreri.
For Ashley Win, she’s traveled through Syracuse numerous times and even with the pandemic, felt comfortable traveling through the airport. She explained that both travelers and workers did their part to socially distance and sanitize.
If you are traveling through Syracuse, Terreri advises to arrive early. Make sure to do your part by wearing your mask and sanitizing your hands and surfaces you may touch.
