Daytona Beach International Airport increased 5 percent in June
Passenger traffic at Daytona Beach International Airport increased 5 percent in June compared with June, 2013. During June, 56,007 passengers flew in or out of the county-operated airport compared to 53,572 passengers recorded last June.
For the 12 months ending June 30, passenger traffic at Daytona Beach International Airport increased 5 percent -- from 591,906 passengers to 623,007 passengers.
According to Rick Karl, the airport’s director, the traffic increase in June is the result of additional seats offered by Delta Air Lines and U.S Airways combined with increased service demand by passengers. Aircraft passenger loads increased from 88 percent last June to 91 percent this year.
“We remain optimistic traffic will continue to be stable and positive throughout the summer and into the fall,” Karl said. Karl also advised of continued efforts to obtain expanded service from existing airlines and seek additional air carriers to serve the community.
