This week’s MEA break is typically a very busy travel time at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. However, this year has been anything but typical due to COVID-19. Kyle Potter with Minneapolis-based ThriftyTraveler.com says it will be interesting to see how many Minnesotans will be going on vacation:
“Given everything that’s going on many students and teachers are teaching and learning remotely, I just don’t know how much this is going to change that normal dynamic. So I think we are going to have to wait and see what it really looks like in the weeks following MEA.”
Potter says back in April air travel in the U.S. was down over 95 percent. He says it’s still down about 60 to 70 percent from normal.
