Airlines are seeing few passengers these days, and that means few people are passing through Tulsa International Airport.

The number of people going through Tulsa’s security checkpoint on Wednesday was less than 200, down from about 5,000 on the same day the year before. That includes travelers, employees and flight crews.

The federal coronavirus relief bill is helping keep most airport workers employed, but most shops and restaurants are closed, and the parking garage operator has laid off most of its staff.
