Another traffic record set at ABIA

Thursday, August 7, 2014 by Mark Richardson

Austin Bergstrom International Airport continues to set records for passenger traffic. June was the busiest month in the airport’s history, with a 6 percent increase in traffic to 968,545 passengers. That tops the previous record of 942,825, set in March 2014. It marks the second time the monthly record has been broken this year and sixth time in the past 16 months. Almost all of the airport’s carriers showed year-to-year traffic gains in June, while three new airlines — British Airways, Allegiant Air and Aeromar — began service in recent months. Air cargo tonnage continued to drop in June, off 6 percent.
