COVID-19 Fears Not Having Much of an Impact on Travel at FYI



FRESNO, Calif. (KMJ) — Airports in California and throughout the country are reporting a decline in travelers, amid worry over COVID-19.



Fresno Yosemite International isn’t seeing much of a change, although spokeswoman Vikkie Calderon says they’re taking precautions.

“We’re in regular contact with the Fresno County Department of Public Health. Some of the enhanced efforts that we’ve made at the Fresno airport include disinfecting common areas, such as ticket counters, counter tops, seating, and arm rests,” Calderon tells KMJ News.

While passenger traffic at FYI doesn’t appear to be down at this point, Calderon says, “Some of the airlines have announced that they’re going to be reducing air service system wide. We are anticipating that we may see some of those change occurring here in Fresno; that may include decreases to flight frequencies and downsizing of aircraft.”

The airport still expects to be busy during Spring Break.
