FSVA Director Carol Waller said that while the air travel demand has increased in the past 6 months, the season ahead remains a bit more uncertain due to new surges in COVID-19. “We don’t know exactly what the future holds, but we know good air service is important to our community and our residents, so we have worked to retain our core service for the winter with a modest increase in frequency for Chicago and the new daily fall service from Denver.”
The total number of SUN currently scheduled winter 2020-21 seats is 82,246, up 4% from the previous winter.
