Passenger counts are picking up at Armstrong International as they get ready for a busier holiday season. The airlines say they are doing all they can to keep their jets COVID-19 free. Plexiglass protects counter attendants and crews cleans every interior surface of the plane between flights. While passenger counts are picking up, they are nowhere near what they were at this time last year. Armstrong officials predict they will be at about 50% of what they were a year ago. Airport officials urge everyone to wear masks when walking about the terminal or boarding a plane. Some airlines keep the middle seat empty to provide adequate social distancing. But other airlines sell every possible seat.
