Last month, the airport saw a 10% increase in passengers, compared to February of 2019.
Though the full numbers aren’t in, the airport director says revenue is way down this month.
“We’re probably looking at anywhere between 80 and 85% decrease in passengers using the airport,” said Jerry Brienza.
Brienza says MFR will remain open, unless closed by the state or federal government.
