Taking Flight: The State of Air Travel

Chicago is the transportation epicenter of the country, but as COVID-19 has decimated the travel industry globally, Illinois has seen a 51% reduction in scheduled passenger flights from this time last year. With millions of jobs already lost or at risk, what are the implications for our regional economy? How have airlines adjusted and what steps are they taking to ensure that travelers are safe on every leg of their journey?

Join the Chicagoland Chamber and experts from Chicago’s major carriers for a panel about the state of business travel.
