NCBC – Checking in with CHO

North Charlottesville Business Council March 2, 2023

Melinda Crawford, Chief Executive Officer of Charlottesville Albemarle Airport (CHO), shared how the airport has rebounded from extremely low passenger numbers during the height of COVID. She also reported on a number of upgrades completed within the airport while passenger traffic was slow.

More good news is on the horizon: American Airlines will offer nonstop flights to Philadelphia beginning in April 2023, and Avelo Airlines will provide service to Orlando starting in May 2023. CHO staffers are working hard to bring back direct flights to Chicago in 2023.

Special thanks to NCBC Chair Steve Gaines of Fulton Bank for organizing the group's first meeting since 2020! We look forward to quarterly networking meetings in 2023.
