Operation Traffic Counts: May 25, 2021
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the dedicated aviation safety professionals that NATCA represents have continued to provide essential service across more than 29 million square miles of airspace. Air traffic controllers are critical to our country’s response to this pandemic, helping ensure delivery of hundreds of millions of doses of the COVID-19 vaccine across the nation. During these vital efforts, NATCA members continue running the world’s safest, most efficient National Airspace System. While the airline industry continues its recovery to pre-pandemic traffic levels, the general aviation community, in some geographic areas, increased flying.
