Airport Board Meeting Updates
We were up 16.2% on enplanements in the month of August over August last year. With a reduction of 1.7% in the amount of seats available.
In September we were down .9% over September last year. That is great considering we lost the Albuquerque flight and Southwest saw a 5.8% reduction.
The airlines are reducing flights to fill the aircraft we have here. Please book your trips early. The more early bookings the easier it is for the airlines to justify extra aircraft and flights.
We are projected to surpass Lubbock this year in enplanements. In the calendar year we are projecting a number around 500,000 people.
The new ramp construction is set to begin tomorrow. Jones Brothers has 60 days to finish Phase 1. The entire project should be completed in 225 days.
