Airport leaders tell abc27 that the numbers are in line with what they expected: Double last year’s total and about 85% of Christmas in 2019, before the pandemic.

They also say the snow on Dec. 27 didn’t cause any cancelations.

One Allegiant flight from Harrisburg to Orlando-Sanford was canceled. But, the airline has had big staffing problems in recent days.
