Daytona Beach, FL – According to airport officials, passenger traffic through Daytona Beach International Airport (DAB) in October increased 14.4% compared to October in 2016.
“October passenger traffic numbers rebounded after a down September due to Hurricane Irma,” said Rick Karl, DAB Director. “We anticipated numbers to be up for October, but it was better than expected. We’ve seen passenger traffic increases throughout most of 2017, which is a very positive indicator for growth at Daytona Beach International Airport.”
This October 58,707 passengers traveled through DAB compared to last October’s 51,303 passengers. In the last year (ending on October 31), the number of passengers flying in and out of DAB increased 4% after 719,135 passengers traveled through the airport compared to 2016’s 691,362 passengers.
“Looking forward, we expect passenger traffic to remain relatively flat for the remainder of 2017. We do expect numbers to increase in the spring of 2018 with Delta adding an additional daily flight,” said Karl.
