The airport also released June statistics. A fraction of normal, but a significant increase over May. https://flymsy.com/wp-content/uploads/2 ... e-2020.pdf

The airport saw a total of 195,623 passengers in June which was a 83.2% decline in traffic from 2019. Since everyone is hit by this, our ranking is little changed at 37th busiest airport in the nation. The airport was positioned between HOU and SJC.

May 2020 domestic and February 2020 international load factors and passenger numbers by route have been calculated.

International load factor for all carriers in February was 74.4%. Passenger traffic increased by 27.8% and seat count increased by 21.4% resulting in 3.7% increase in load factor. Our international carriers were doing very well at MSY before the pandemic hit, so hopefully they will be back rather quickly once either natural immunity or a vaccine occurs.

February International route seat count(%change), pax count(%change), and load factor(change)

Airline............Seats.............................Pax..........................LF
AC................8,284(+3.0%).................6,322(+1.4%)........76.3%(-1.2%)
BA................8,790(+2.4%).................6,220(+4.2%)........70.8%(+1.3%)
CM...............3,408(+14.5%)...............2,786(+40.9%)......81.7%(+15.3%)
DL................1,570(+48.7%).................687(+66.3%).......43.8%(+4.7%)
TS................3,024..............................2,633.....................87.1%

May was less terrible than April, but it was still awful. Airport-wide seat count dropped by -80.7%, and pax traffic fell by -92.8% resulting in a -62.7% decrease in load factors to 31.0%. F9's MSY-DEN route had the best loads of the month at 57.4%. WN's MSY-SAT route had the worst loads of the month at 7.9%. One bright spot is every domestic carrier at the airport flew at least one route in May.

One interesting note is that G4 ran a few flights to VPS in May, and they farely well for the times we are in with a 53% load factor.

May Domestic route seat count(% change), pax count(%change), and load factor(change):

Airline.................Seats..............................Pax............................LF
AS..................6,830(-69.1%)..............2,638(-85.6%).........38.6%(-44.4%)
AA................67,996(-68.9%)............25,815(-85.8%).........38.0%(-54.4%)
B6...................6,684(-88.4%).............1,409(-97.0%).........21.1%(-73.7%)
DL................18,877(-92.2%)..............5,420(-97.4%).........28.7%(-67.0%)
F9...................6,324(-79.9%).............2,739(-89.6%)..........43.3%(-48.3%)
G4..................9,480(-36.1%).............2,668(-76.5%)..........28.1%(-63.3%)
NK..................6,156(-97.0%).............2,017(-98.8%)..........32.8%(-58.7%)
SY..................1,488(-49.2%)................342(-85.6%)...........23.0%(-71.5%)
UA................14,664(-92.4%).............6,149(-96.3%)..........41.9%(-51.1%)
WN.............159,847(-27.1%)...........43,275(-90.5%)..........27.1%(-67.2%)

So the spring looks pretty normal. Notably RDU seems to be a permanent daily route.

Wait; for clarity, are you saying that WN is tentatively going back to full schedule by next spring?

Yes, at least as of right now. Of course they haven't been afraid to cut back on short notice, so time will tell. IIRC October and November were cut back to 20-30 daily departures.

And thanks as always NolaMD88fan for compiling the stats. Certainly not a fun job these days, but things were looking good before March. I see a lot of carriers adding Mexico flights, so hopefully there's pent-up demand to support NK's SAP and CUN flight when and if they start. TS has to be very happy with their performance - hope WS is taking note.

Let's hope that the hotels can stay afloat until tourism rebounds. As tragic as it is, the housing of evacuees in local hotels should help in what would otherwise be a really low tourism period

Second only to BA, I'm *really* interested in seeing what NK's plans are for MSY, as the markets begin to recover.

July passenger stats are out for MSY. Best month since the pandemic began with traffic running around 30% of normal. https://flymsy.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/July-2020-Statistics.pdf

The airport saw a total of 319,540 passengers in July which was a 70.5% decline in traffic from 2019. Ranking remained the same at 37th busiest airport in the nation through the first 7 months of the year. The airport was positioned between HOU and SMF. Looking at July alone, the airport was 40th busiest in the nation and was sandwiched between CLE and RDU.

June 2020 domestic and March 2020 international load factors and passenger numbers by route have been calculated.

International load factor for all carriers in March was 63.9%. Passenger traffic fell by 46.3% and seat count dropped by 32.4% resulting in 16.5% decrease in load factor. Obviously, the numbers reflect the beginning of the pandemic lockdown and the hopefully temporary ending of international service.

March International route seat count(%change), pax count(%change), and load factor(change)

Airline............Seats.............................Pax..........................LF
AC................5,624(-40.9%)................3,442(-51.8%)......61.2%(-13.8%)
BA................4,930(+47.7%)...............3,535(-56.9%)......71.7%(-15.2%)
CM...............2,816(-35.1%)................1,788(-48.9%)......63.5%(-17.2%)
DL..................628(-52.4%)..................405(-57.7%)........64.5%(-8.0%)
TS................2,646..............................1,468....................55.5%

The slow recovery continued into June. Airport-wide seat count dropped by 72.0%, and pax traffic fell by 82.8% resulting in a 38.5% decrease in load factors to 51.8%. NK's MSY-LAX route had the best loads of the month at 84.5%. WN's MSY-LGA route had the worst loads of the month at 25.9%.

June Domestic route seat count(% change), pax count(%change), and load factor(change):

Airline.................Seats..............................Pax............................LF
AS..................8,710(-58.5%)..............5,191(-71.8%).........59.6%(-28.2%)
AA................79,077(-57.8%)............48,479(-69.3%).........61.3%(-27.2%)
B6...................5,992(-85.3%).............1,983(-94.4%).........33.1%(-61.7%)
DL................28,712(-87.1%)............13,087(-93.5%).........45.6%(-49.5%)
F9...................7,800(-76.9%).............5,443(-80.9%)..........69.8%(-17.5%)
G4..................5,100(-60.5%).............2,241(-77.5%)..........43.9%(-43.0%)

Anecdotally -- I've flown each of the past 3 weeks on United. All flights basically full to IAH and DEN. Airport seems very dead still but the flights that are going out would seem to have good loads.

August passenger stats are out for MSY. No significant change from July in terms of passenger traffic levels. https://flymsy.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/Airline-Statistics-August-2020.pdf

The airport saw a total of 309,019 passengers in August which was a 70.2% decline in traffic from 2019. Ranking remained the same at 37th busiest airport in the nation through the first 8 months of the year. The airport was positioned between RSW and SMF.

July 2020 domestic load factors and passenger numbers by route have been calculated. There is no international update given the service suspensions associated with COVID-19 travel restrictions.

Sharp increase in passenger numbers as NK started serving most destinations again in July. Airport-wide seat count dropped by 51.9%, and pax traffic fell by 69.8% resulting in a 37.2% decrease in load factors to 49.7%. NK's MSY-FLL route had the best loads of the month at 79.7%. WN's MSY-LGA route had the worst loads of the month at 21.7%. Overall, the load factor didn't change much even with an increase in capacity, so that is good sign that most of that capacity increase was absorbed.

WN remained the largest carrier, but AA and NK were number two and three in July DL and UA continued to be very slow with capacity buildup to MSY.

July Domestic route seat count(% change), pax count(%change), and load factor(change):

Airline.................Seats..............................Pax............................LF
AS..................8,930(-53.9%)..............3,750(-76.6%).........42.0%(-40.8%)
AA..............125,764(-28.5%)............74,610(-47.5%).........59.3%(-26.6%)
B6................13,658(-58.9%)..............4,225(-84.7%).........30.9%(-62.8%)
DL................48,560(-77.5%)............22,531(-87.6%).........46.4%(-44.9%)
F9.................10,832(-71.4%).............6,329(-79.5%)..........58.4%(-28.1%)
G4..................6,486(-52.2%).............3,083(-69.2%)..........47.5%(-35.7%)
NK..............119,055(-39.3%)...........72,772(-52.7%)..........61.1%(-22.1%)
UA................34,852(-75.8%)...........16,838(-85.8%)..........48.3%(-41.4%)
WN.............290,241(-45.7%).........122,857(-69.5%)..........42.3%(-43.8%)

Amazon Air will begin operations at MSY. Glad to see a new cargo operator and a new livery at the airport.

It’ll be a slow December - February for WN at MSY. It looks like less flights to all of the hub cities plus. Maybe someone can do a compare/contrast to today.

AA looks like it will have 18 flights on peak days. 11 of those will be on E175’s. Down to one flight to Miami.

NK looks flat or down compared to today. I see a lot of reductions in December.

Seriously the only truly positive news recently has been the arrival of Prime Air. I don’t think we’ve seen one new route addition since covid became a thing. While there is some leisure traffic over the weekends, with full airplanes, the lack of conventions and cruise ships is really packing a punch.
Spread hope like fire.

Any chance amazon adds a flight to CVG? Right now they are only doing AFW-MSY-AFW with a 737F.

The Amazon facility is maxed out at CVG so they aren't adding new routes at the moment. Once the new facility opens more routes will be connected to the CVG hub.
