COVID Crashes KCI Traffic

A worthwhile perspective on the local airline industry as Kansas City continues to build a new terminal as the industry isn't likely to recover any time soon.

Kansas City International Airport passenger traffic laid low by pandemic - Kansas City Business Journal

Passenger traffic at Kansas City International Airport ended 2020 down nearly 62% from the previous year due to the pandemic. For the year, KCI reported slightly less than 4.5 million passengers, the Kansas City Aviation Department reports. That compares with nearly 11.8 million passengers in 2019 - the third-busiest year in the airport's history.

Good thing we are spending all of that money on a new airport we don’t need. Are they still claiming that it will pay for itself?

I just feel terrible that all of the minority businesses tied to airport contracts won't be paid. What a shame that that meal ticket won't come through for them.
