Daytona Beach International Airport passenger traffic up 4 percent in December
Airport increased 4 percent in December compared with December 2013. During December, 47,461 passengers traveled through the county-operated airport compared with 45,535 last December. For the 12 months ending Dec. 31, the airport recorded 629,843 passengers, a 4 percent increase over 2013 and the highest level of annual passenger traffic since 2007.
“The traffic increase in December was welcome news,” said Rick Karl, the airport’s director. During December, Delta Air Lines and U.S Airways offered more seats than last December which contributed to the month’s increase. Passenger loads for both airlines increased from 90 percent last December to 91 percent this year.
Karl also said he expects passenger traffic to continue to be stable to increasing in 2015 as the economy continues to improve
and air service demand continues to be strong. Karl noted that for 2015 the airport plans to continue its marketing efforts to
attract expanded air service options for the community.
“We are looking forward to 2015 being another great year at Daytona Beach International Airport,” said Karl.
