A local newspaper reported the airport has now exceeded attendance records for the sixth consecutive fiscal year. The airport saw 2.2 million more passengers from July 2018 through June 2019 compared to the previous fiscal year, marking an increase of about 15 per cent.
Airport president and CEO Doug Kreulen said the airport’s passenger growth was unprecedented. It expected to see more than 18 million passengers this calendar year.
The airport expected to have an economic impact of about $7.1 billion on the area. It offers about 540 daily flights and is in the middle of an expansion that includes additional parking, a new concourse and a hotel.
