Lehigh Valley Airport

One of the hardest-hit segments of the economy this year is the travel industry. But the Lehigh Valley International Airport announced an expansion Tuesday. United Airlines will add two direct flights daily to Washington, D.C.

Commercial passenger travel through the lehigh valley international airport dropped 70 percent this june as compared to the same time last year because of the pandemic. But as WLVR’s Ben Stemrich reports, officials say a new hangar that’s been under construction for nearly three years could bring in other flights.
