While cargo had been ticking upward, it can't cover the losses of commercial air travel. What impact will this mean for Iowa's airports? How long could it take to recover and what could this mean for the future of air travel for consumers?
Panelists include: Marty Lenss, Director of the Eastern Iowa Airport; Tim McClung, Iowa Department of Transportation, LeAnn Ridgeway, Collins Aerospace. Moderator: Lee Hermiston, The Gazette.
