DAYTONA BEACH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT TRAFFIC UP 23 PERCENT IN SEPTEMBER
Passenger traffic at Daytona Beach International Airport (DAB) increased 22.8 percent for September in comparison with September last year.* During the month, 53,691 passengers flew in or out of the county-operated airport, compared to 43,728 passengers last September.
For the 12 months ending Sept. 30, total passenger traffic at DAB increased 22.8 percent with 622,294 passengers traveling through the facility last year compared to 689,586 passengers this year. This month marks the 11th consecutive month of year-over-year passenger traffic increases.
“Even in a slower travel month like September we saw very positive growth in passenger traffic over last year,” said Airport Director Rick Karl. “We remain cautiously optimistic heading into 2017 since we haven’t experienced this type of growth in more than 10 years. However, Delta and American have both added capacity over the last six months, and the demand has kept up. Delta had its strongest load factor of the year at 94 percent. These are all very positive indicators for continued growth.”
