Throughout the month of August, 236,799 passengers traveled through the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport. This is a 2.9% decrease as compared to August 2021. Passengers traveling through the airport year-to-date totaled 2,611,962, a 28.6% increase as compared to 2021 totals of 2,030,487 for the first 8 months.
“As summer comes to an end, we continue to see a slight reduction in monthly passenger levels compared to last year. We expect this to change starting in October when the number of seats scheduled by airlines servicing SRQ begins to exceed 2021 levels. Another trend we are seeing is aircraft passenger load factors are higher this year compared to 2021. We expect this trend to remain as our community continues to rapidly grow and demand to use SRQ increases,” stated Rick Piccolo, President, and CEO of the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport.
