Travelers Steadily Returning to XNA Following Pandemic Slump

Northwest Arkansas National Airport
25,739 people flew through XNA in July compared to only 3,151 in April.

After hitting record lows for air travel earlier this year due to COVID-19, passenger traffic is beginning to rise at Northwest Arkansas National Airport. In April, XNA had a 95% drop in enplanements from 2019, but those numbers were at approximately 71% for July. A spokesperson for XNA credits leisure as the main driver for travelers.
