2015 was a record year at the Springfield airport — the total passenger count was 919,044. It smashes the old record set in 2005 of 888,738, and is a 9% increase over 2014 passenger numbers.
“Over 70,000 more passengers used the Springfield airport last year than in 2014,” says Brian Weiler, airport director of aviation. “This level of passenger growth is very good news and a strong indicator of a much improved local economy.”
2015 was marked not only by a record number of passengers, but also by several air service improvements.
