NWA Daily

With summer in full swing, NWA is doing vacation like it's 2019. The Northwest Arkansas National Airport is seeing more leisure travelers going to more locations and a growing demand for flights.

  • All play, no work: XNA expects the number of business travelers to rebound in the coming months, but leisure flights have been taking the reins recently.
  • More to come: Total number of travelers coming through XNA is still down from pre-COVID levels, but the projections look promising. Assuming all direct flights return, along with new flights recently announced, travelers could take "27 routes to 24 unique destinations by October."
