Passenger traffic at Daytona Beach International Airport (DAB) increased 4.1 percent for June in comparison with the same month last year.* During the month, 65,404 passengers flew in or out of the county-operated airport, compared to 62,845 passengers last June.
For the 12 months ending June 30, total passenger traffic at DAB increased 3.76 percent with 707,413 passengers traveling through the facility last year compared to 734,046 passengers this year.
“June marks the fifth straight month of passenger traffic increases over 2017,” said Airport Director Rick Karl.
Karl added: “Even though American Airlines (PSA) had 28 flight cancellations last month, passenger traffic still increased over last year. American’s cancellations were caused by computer hardware outages in Charlotte, causing flight disruptions for several days. Delta also had two flight cancellations due to mechanical issues.”
For the month of June, both American and Delta added flights over last year, which offset the flight cancellations. Passenger traffic would have increased double-digits over last year, if not for the cancellations. The airport anticipates the positive trends to continue over the next few months. However, the recent taxiway construction may cause reductions in seat capacity.
