The latest information from the Tallahassee International Airport shows that passenger traffic increased in October by 9.5% when compared to traffic one year ago. The number of passengers was up from 72,334 during last October to 79,205 this year.
The Passenger Traffic Report shows passenger counts increased for all three carriers. American was up 17.2%, the Delta Group was up 4.9% and Silver Airways was up 0.4%.
The graph below shows the annualized number of passengers for the last 24-months. The annual rate of passengers at TIA in October was 856,855. This is 8.42% above the annualized rate reported during this month last year. The annualized number of passengers is calculated by summing the previous 12 months of traffic.
The annualized passenger traffic before the Great Recession was approximately 947,000 in 2007.
How I wish the Tallahassee airport would grow and get another carrier (Southwest). For a capital city, the airport is minuscule.
