Just read an article in a Boston newspaper that the passenger counts at Logan are going to see a 15% drop due to permanent decrease in business travel because of video conferencing like Zoom. With Logan Airport less conjested it takes away the main selling point of ORH (alternate to Logan). The study also states that there is going to be a 25% decrease in Commuter Rail passengers because about 30% of office employees are going to be working from home. Commercial vacancy rates are going to be greatly up as there is going to be less demand. We've already seen this as UNUM abandoned their whole tower at Citysquare. The renovated glass tower is going to find it difficult to attract new tenants. All of this could be a disaster for Worcester.

The airline industry needs to and will adjust. Although business travel is a smaller percentage of air travel, it accounts for a large percentage of the airlines revenue. Massport needs to promote freight (Amazon) in addition typical commercial travel capitalizing on Worcester's central location.

UPS was very interested in setting up a facility at ORH about 25 years ago. The neighbors complained to the City Concilors
and the plan fizzled. It seems like UPS and FedEx are doing fine with their current infrastructure. I'm mean, I always get my packages from UPS and FedEx on time. I'm not sure why they would want to spend millions to have a facility at ORH when things are working well.

An article in today's Boston Globe stated that T. F. Green Airport outside of Providence, Rhode Island voted one of the top five best U.S. airports in 2020 by USA Today, Condé Nast Traveler, and Travel + Leisure.
