The Passenger Traffic Report shows passenger counts decreased for the three major carriers. American was down 57.5%, the Delta Group was down 80.4% and Silver Airways was down 100.0%.
The graph below shows the annualized number of passengers for the last 24-months. The annual rate of passengers at TIA in July was 606,718.
