Commercial carriers had one of their best months in August, but it still wasn’t as good as this time last year. Steve Best has been looking at the figures…..
The 4 airlines servicing the Rogue Valley report just over 60,000 traveling customers in August. It was their third busiest on record, but still over 4% down on 2010. The best year was 2007, when over 65,000 travelers passed through the gates.
Both United Express and Allegiant Air saw declining numbers due to fuel costs and fewer flights. Horizon Air grew by nearly 24%, while Delta Connection saw a modest 1.7% rise.
So far this year, the airport has seen over 417,000 travelers fly in and out, down nearly 2% on last year.
