Tampa, Fla.-(Newsradio 970 WFLA)-Tampa International Airport had the busiest month in airport history in March. A record 2,192,602 passengers went through T.I.A. during the 31 day period.
Tampa International's Danny Valentine says the new record beat out the previous high in March of 2017 by over 213,000 passengers. The new figures mark a 10.8 percent increase in passenger traffic.
Valentine says the good passenger numbers were fueled by both domestic and international passenger growth. Domestic travel was up by almost 10 percent while international passenger traffic rose by over 12 percent.
Frontier Airlines was T.I.A.'s fastest growing carrier, with over 116 percent growth. Tampa International's largest airline, Southwest, grew by 4.3 percent.
