As Massachusetts gears up for an expected surge in coronavirus cases, travel in and out of the state through Boston Logan Airport has plummeted.
The number of airport passengers fell by 93% between March 23-29, compared to the same period last year, according to the latest Massport data.
Travel at Boston Logan has been on the steady decline since late February and early March. There was first a 4.5% in the week that ended on March 1; ultimately, Logan saw a whopping 76% drop off in the final of the four weeks recorded.
People appear to be heeding advisories to stay home and avoid non-essential travel.
Gov. Charlie Baker has asked those still traveling to the state to self-quarantine for 14 days.
