COVID-19 Update

The project team is excited to announce we are well underway on the 2020 WVAEIS! The beginning of the WVAEIS was marked with a kickoff meeting in January and the project team has since progressed on tasks in preparation for the next step of the project: data collection. Travel restrictions and social distancing guidelines in light of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic are impacting the team’s ability to safely conduct site visits at West Virginia’s 24 system airports which is a vital component of data collection efforts. The project team’s top priority is to protect the safety and health of airport managers, staff, tenants, and other West Virginia aviation stakeholders during these unprecedented times and we will continue to assess the situation until it is deemed safe to begin conducting site visits.
