ORLANDO, Fla. — People are eager to get out and travel after a long year at home.
Orlando International Airport is seeing record-setting travel once again.
Airport leaders said travel is getting close to pre-pandemic levels.
New numbers show April traffic was 2000% higher than April last year.
The airport was a ghost town in April 2020 due to the pandemic.
According to the latest monthly numbers from April, Orlando International Airport saw more than 3.2 million passengers pass through.
Channel 9′s Christy Turner spoke to a passenger who said air travel appears to be back on track.
“It’s kind of crazy to think that just a couple months ago, everything was shut down,” said Keyara Vandenburg.
Airport leaders said they are seeing a big bounce back.
This past weekend, the airport drew a record-breaking crowd of passengers since the COVID-19 pandemic started.
Saturday saw more than 67,000 air travelers alone.
Airport leaders say the numbers are strong domestically, and hope it’s a promising sigh for big turnout when international travel recovers.
