American Airlines, which began service to Phoenix in February, reported 3,325 passengers in April and 8,598 for the year. The carrier’s load factor — how full the seats were on each plane — was 83 percent.


Allegiant reported 1,816 passengers in April, with a load factor of 68 percent, and 7,054 passengers for the year.
