Leadership in a Time of Crisis: Rhode Island Airport Corporation

At times such as these we are fortunate that “resiliency” is woven into the very fabric of Rhode Island. Indeed, as our state and nation continue our collective recovery, it is our support for each other that can have the greatest impact.

The Rhode Island Airport Corporation recognizes that T.F. Green and all our public airports play a critical role supporting Rhode Island’s hospitality, tourism and business travel economies. Our collective road to recovery will not be brief or easy, and we expect it will be many years before we see a return to pre-pandemic levels of travel.

We remain proud of the leadership shown by our state and business community throughout this crisis, and we will continue to work with our airline and public health partners to promote safe travel for all.

Yet the choices Rhode Islanders make at this time can make all the difference as airlines begin to choose where and when to restore routes and service.

When you #ChoosePVD rather than other regional options, you send a clear message to the airlines that Rhode Island is making a thoughtful choice to “Fly Local” even if that choice requires connecting flights.

The return on your thoughtful investment will pay dividends to all who depend on Rhode Island’s connections to support our local economy, and your choice will help us help you as we seek to restore passenger volume and expand travel options to the state.
When you #ChoosePVD you help Rhode Island. And as you lead, others will follow.

We thank you for your patience and support, and know that having navigated the storm together, we will be even stronger – together.
