Last month was the busiest June ever for Gerald R. Ford International Airport.

In June, Ford airport served 309,439 passengers compared to 282,863 in June 2018, a more than 9% increase. On average, 9,779 passengers are coming through the airport each day.

This is the airport’s busiest second quarter and busiest first half on record.

Through June, 1,770,050 passengers have traveled through the airport this year, and overall passenger traffic is up 11% from 2018, which was the busiest year in the airport’s history.

Ford airport has seen passenger increases for 21 consecutive months and in 71 of the last 78 months.

“2019 continues to be an impressive year, and the growth we’ve seen in our community is concurrent to the growth at our airport,” said Brian Picardat, interim president and CEO, Ford airport.

“With new additions in air service, summer travel trends peaking upwards and an overall satisfaction with our services at the Ford airport, we’re continuing to see these numbers climb.”
