Last month 302,189 passengers traveled through the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport, compared to 126,704 passengers in January 2021. This is an increase of 138% and is the highest number of passengers for the month of January in the history of SRQ.
“We continue to be pleasantly surprised by the number of passengers who choose SRQ, especially last month, with the many weather-related cancellations. In January, we had 282 flights cancelled, primarily due to the multiple cold fronts moving across the United States. Flight schedules are returning to normal as we prepare for our peak months of March and April,” stated Rick Piccolo, President, CEO of the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport.
Record-breaking growth is expected to continue as airlines add new destinations. Allegiant Air will begin new nonstop service to Akron-Canton, OH on March 3rd and to Appleton, WI on March 11th
