Kamloops Airport passenger count keeps rising
Kamloops Airport continues to see more and more people pass through its terminal.
In the second month of 2013, the airport counted 25,951 travellers, a 0.6 per cent increase from the 24,739 passengers who flew through Fulton Field in February 2012.
“Growth in the numbers of travellers using the airport has continued at the same pace set in 2012,” said Fred Legace, the airport’s managing director.
Through the first two months of the year, Kamloops Airport has seen 50,621 people pass through, which is a 2.7 per cent increase from the 49,253 people who landed and departed through February of last year.
“With the additional leap day in February last year, growth for this past month was expected to be less by comparison.
“When that is factored in, though, growth continues at the pace set in the past eight months.
“Among the groups contributing to this growth are skiers and commuting workers.”
