Yeager passenger numbers back up to pre-pandemic levels


CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The state’s busiest airport for commercial flights is back to pre-pandemic levels when it comes to a number of passengers. 

Yeager Airport Director Nick Keller told members of the Yeager board Wednesday the airport is averaging about 4,000 enplanements a week. 

Keller said low-cost flights to Orlando and Myrtle Beach on Spirit Airlines have been a big help. He told board members he’s further optimistic with the June 6 return of American Airlines flights to Philadelphia. 

“That will be a complete restoration that we lost with COVID,” Keller said. “Really importantly in June we’ll have more seats in the market for June this year than we had in June 2019.”
