GRAND RAPIDS — Passenger activity in November at the Gerald R. Ford International Airport was down by slightly more than 13 percent from the same month last year.

About 140,400 passengers left from and arrived at GFIA in November. In November 2000, 161,700 did the same.

For the year, passenger air travel was down by 3.7 percent from the first 11 months of last year. In 2000, 1.75 million passengers flew to and from GFIA. So far this year, almost 1.69 million have flown.

The cargo total for the year was down by 11.4 percent and 5.7 percent for November of this year. Both drops were due to a decline in airmail shipments, as freight was actually up by 1 percent for the year and 36.2 percent for November.

Mail totals were down by 38.5 percent for the year and 78.7 percent for November.

In addition, general aviation flights to and from GFIA have fallen by 11.2 percent for the year and by 16.2 percent for November.
