KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City International Airport reported a 62% decline in passengers last month compared to the previous year.
The city’s aviation department said in a press release Monday that 305,807 people flew in or out of KCI in January, and passenger boardings declined 63.6% in the same timeframe.
While a spokesperson described the “pandemic-related declines” as "disappointing," KCI is encouraged by future nonstop service to New York-LaGuardia from American Airlines, according to Pat Klein, director of aviation.
Air mail also saw a 70% decline.
