28 Percent Passenger Increase at Casper-Natrona County Intl. Airport in April
It was yet another strong month for Casper-Natrona County International Airport.
The airport recorded its 15th consecutive month of increased passenger traffic in April. Casper-Natrona County International Airport manager Glenn Januska says, so far, his airport has thrived in 2013.
“28 percent increase this April compared to last – that means, for the first four months of this year, compared to the first four months of last year, we’ve seen a 25 percent increase,” Januska said. “So far, it has been a very good year.”
Januska says several airlines are utilizing higher-capacity aircraft and are flying more frequently to Casper compared to last year. Because of that, Januska says he expects the positive momentum to carry into the summer months.
“When we look at the additional seats that are available, as well as what we’re seeing from a passenger demand standpoint - particularly, when we compare ourselves to last summer - we should have some good, continued growth this summer,” Januska said.
Airport officials say April’s passenger increase was the highest seen at the CPR since 1987.
