Record Number of Travelers Flying from Great Falls International Airport

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

More people are traveling by air in Great Falls. The airport is reporting a record breaking number of passengers during the first few months of 2014.

According to the Airport Authority, 83,458 people came through the airport in the first quarter of the year. That's a three percent increase from 2013 and a one percent increase from 2012.

The record number of travelers is thought to be from the record low ticket prices. FAA data shows the average ticket price in Great Falls is down four percent over the last two years while national ticket prices are up nine percent.

The Airport Authority adds that they expect the high number of passengers to continue throughout the typically busy summer months.
