Traffic down at Statesville airport due to coronavirus


With NASCAR events postponed and corporate representatives staying home in response to the coronavirus, business at Statesville Regional Airport is down.

Airport Manager John Ferguson said the airport usually saw takeoffs and landings on Thursdays and Sundays related to NASCAR and corporate flights throughout the week.

Corporations that use Statesville’s airport include Ashley Furniture, Cheney Brothers Inc. and Scotts Miracle-Gro. Ferguson said there has been a significant reduction in corporate flights in the last week.
