RecordPassengers035603[1]It was a summer for the record books at Mitchell Airport! Not for the heat index, but rather for the record number of passengers who traveled out of the airport in June, July and August.

In August alone the airport’s passenger count increased nearly 20 percent compared to August 2009, marking the twelfth straight month of record passenger growth and surpassing the previous highest single-month records in June and July 2010.

In the first eight months of 2010, the airport served 6.6 million passengers, a 30 percent increase over the same period in 2009.
