How will Florida’s aviation sector adapt to a post-COVID landscape amid tourism rise?

By: NewsUSA

(NewsUSA) - Florida's aviation sector is grappling with significant setbacks post-COVID-19, particularly in direct international flights, a crucial component for the state's tourism and commerce. Fort Lauderdale, once bustling with direct flights to London and Paris by Marabu Airlines and Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA, now sees a complete halt in these services. This decline is part of a global trend where airlines prioritize major hubs, impacting smaller destinations like Fort Lauderdale. The reduction in air connectivity comes at a time when Florida's tourism is on the rise, with Visit Florida reporting a 3.0 percent increase in visitors from 2019. The state now faces the challenge of adapting to a new aviation landscape amidst growing tourist numbers, highlighting the need for strategic adjustments in its air travel network to sustain growth and connectivity.
