COS February 2020 Traffic Report & COVID-19 Response Update

Share this page:

The Colorado Springs Airport (COS) reported strong passenger numbers in February. For the month of February, COS enplaned 58,506 passengers, bringing the total passenger number for the month to 117,361, representing a 12.6 percent increase from the same period last year and 10 percent for the year.

While load factors for the month showed a 4.4 percent decrease from this time last year, this is attributable to a large increase in seats available in the market, where they were up 16 percent in February, with all four carriers showing an increase in seats.

While the first half of March showed equal promise to February, current enplanements and booking numbers are declining based on reduced travel due to the Coronavirus response in the US.

Looking Ahead

As the COVID-19 public health emergency remains fluid, COS will continue to work with local and state agencies to ensure that COS continues to follow all recommended practices and procedures from the CDC.  We have incorporated several measures within our facility to help prevent the spread of disease and increase education and awareness. We will continue to monitor the situation and make all necessary changes to ensure the health and safety of our passengers, tenants and employees.

While airport concessions are exempt from Governor’s Order Number 20-22, the health and well-being of our passengers and employees is our priority and recent changes have been put in place temporarily closing or reducing the hours of some Airport concessionaries. These will be consistently updated on the FlyCOS website and on our social media channels.

Effective March 20, 2020 at 5 p.m., valet parking operations will be suspended for in-bound travelers and the Mortgage Solutions Financial™ Premier Lounge will be temporarily closed until further notice. Premier Lounge members will be able to park in short-term parking at no cost and are instructed to use a manned booth when exiting to have their ticket validated. COS will continue to update the traveling public on any changes made that may affect your travel.

When you say ‘YES to COS’ you’re saying ‘hello’ to hassle free travel. Flying out of the Colorado Springs Airport is the smart choice for easy travel to direct and connecting destinations. COS offers simple parking, easy check-in, and a short drive home. COS is a primary economic engine for the state of Colorado, generating more than $3 billion for the region annually.
