Passenger Traffic up at El Paso International Airport

The City of El Paso and El Paso International Airport announced Wednesday that total passenger traffic for the year 2017 increased 4.3% over 2016.

El Paso International Airport served 2,928,159 passengers in 2017, which is 120,425 more passengers than the previous year. This is the second year in a row that the airport has realized year-over-year growth; in 2016 passenger traffic was up 1.6% over 2015.

“With more new flights set to begin service this spring, total number of non-stop flights added within the past three years is up to nine; we are witnessing a steady growth in routes and capacity and we will continue our work to maintain that trend in 2018,” said Monica Lombraña, A.A.E., Managing Director of Aviation and International Bridges.

The increase in passenger traffic is a result of the new services added over the past three years.

Flights that contributed to the increase in traffic include: one additional daily flight to Atlanta on Delta; two weekly flights to San Diego, Las Vegas, Orlando/Sanford, and Oakland on Allegiant; and one daily flight to Denver on United.

New service commencing this spring include one additional weekly flight to San Diego and Las Vegas on Southwest; four weekly flights to Denver and two weekly flights to Chicago on Frontier; two daily flights to Chicago on United; and one daily flight to Chicago on American. United and American will also increase aircraft size on certain routes.
