Denver airport sets August traffic record
DENVER, Colorado – Denver International Airport has set another monthly record for passenger traffic.
Airport officials said Wednesday that nearly 4.9 million travelers passed through the airport in August. That’s up 2.3 percent from August 2008 and is the busiest August on record.
The airport also set a monthly record in July.
Airport aviation manager Kim Day says overall traffic for the year will probably be down from the record 51.2 million passengers who used the airport last year. But she says traffic is better than expected because of strong competition in the Denver market.
Through August, the airport’s passenger traffic this year is down 2.8 percent from the 35.3 million passengers who used the airport in the same period last year.
