2020 vs. 2019 Retention vs. TSA Through DEC 2020

With the publishing of TSA Throughput data through December I have updated the workbook that allows you to compare your airport’s enplanement retention on a month-to-month basis versus 2019 and versus the 2020 TSA average. 

As you can see below, Fargo’s retention rate has fallen to 43.15% in December 2020 versus December 2019 but is still higher than the national average. 

Overall, since the pandemic began in March 2020, Fargo’s retention for 2020 was 37.48% versus the national average of 27.77%.

Please feel free to download the workbook at:


Just remember, in the Inputs worksheet you need to change the airport code in cell B1 and manually input your airport enplanements for July through December to make the chart work.
