HOUSTON (CW39) – More than a dozen air carriers are restarting their international service at Houston airports following the huge decline in air travel during COVID-19.
In March, the aviation industry started experiencing a sharp decline in air service. At the height of the downturn in April, Houston experienced a 95% decline in air traffic.
When it comes to international service, now fourteen out of the twenty-two carriers that were serving Houston before the pandemic started are back in service.
