PHOENIX — As COVID-19 continues to take its toll on Arizona, Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport has seen the economic impact of the virus firsthand.

Amid a sparse crowd practicing social distancing in a city council meeting that wouldn’t allow in-person public participation, Sky Harbor’s Director of Aviation Services Jim Bennett flashed pictures of emptiness of the airport to the Phoenix mayor and City Council.

“Last year, we had the busiest year in the history of Sky Harbor Airport, with a record 46.3 million passengers,” Bennett said. “Fiscal year to date, through February, we were showing a 3.9% increase over last year.”
