The Chicago Rockford International Airport saw a decrease in both available seats and passenger traffic in the first two months of the year.
The airport saw an 11 percent decrease in available seats during those months, but only a 9.7 percent decrease in passenger traffic. Flights were 87 percent full.
Director of Economic Development and Governmental Affairs Mike Dunn says the decrease in passenger traffic is due to the absence of service to Ft. Myers, Florida in January and part of February. He expects the addition of that service and service to Montego Bay, Jamaica to increase traffic in March.
In January the airport served 16,313 passengers, down from 19,652 passengers in the same month last year. In February, 18,828 passengers were served, down from 19,263 in February 2012.
