July data show Pensacola International Airport ridership up
By Carlton Proctor
The Pensacola (FL) Business Journal
Passenger traffic at Pensacola International Airport is headed back toward
positive territory, based on the latest July figures.
Airport marketing manager Belinda Zephir said the six commercial air
carriers serving Pensacola added seat capacity last month, reporting flights
88 percent full, well above industry standards.
Total passengers for July were 148,724, compared with 151,151 for the same
month last year.
One factor contributing to the airport's passenger decline last month was
Delta's decision to cut two of its three daily commuter flights to Memphis.
Delta has announced it will eliminate all flights to Memphis this month.
Once again, Delta passengers will have to fly to Atlanta exclusively to make
connections to other cities in the U.S. and around the world.
A bright spot of note:
. Air freight shipped out of the airport has skyrocketed since October of
last year when UPS arrived.
