Kansas City, MO - While the pandemic continues, cities and states have begun the process of reopening and it's expected that air travel will get back to normal at some point.

Due to the coronavirus shutdowns, the 'stay-at-home' orders, and the quarantines, air travel took a big hit.  Air travelers nearly vanished in the first three months of the pandemic.  

Airports have become near ghost towns, airlines have parked a lot of their planes (see above), and many that are flying have been sometimes nearly empty or only half-full, due to the lack of travelers and by the airlines' own process of social distancing onboard aircraft. 

One even has their pick of spaces in the economy lots at KCI Airport.  The lots are almost empty. 

For our Travel Tuesday feature series, E.J. Becker spoke with a pair of well-seasoned travelers from the Acendas Travel Agency in Mission, KS.
