DAYTONA BEACH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT TRAFFIC UP 7 PERCENT IN JULY
Passenger traffic at Daytona Beach International Airport (DAB) increased 7.4 percent for July in comparison with July of last year.* During the month, 64,746 passengers flew in or out of the county-operated airport, compared to 60,262 passengers last July.
For the 12 months ending July 31, total passenger traffic at DAB increased 6 percent with 671,651 passengers traveling through the facility last year compared to 711,897 passengers this year.
“July traffic numbers marked another notable increase this summer,” said Airport Director Rick Karl. “Load factor increases – the number of available seats – for Delta and JetBlue were again the driving force behind the growth in July.”
Karl added, “With capacity, load factors and passenger traffic all trending up, along with an additional daily flight for Delta anticipated to commence in October, we expect data for the second half of the year to remain positive.”
