Airport Reports 3rd Busiest Year on Record

January 25, 2016

Wichita Eisenhower National Airport 2015 passenger numbers increased by 37,679 over 2014, a 2.46 percent increase airport officials reported on Monday. Officials said the 1,571,348 Eisenhower passengers in 2015 amounted to the third busiest year on record.

“We are very pleased that passengers have responded to the conveniences and amenities of our new terminal and our air service.  With the capacity reductions, our flights have been pretty full; otherwise, we would have seen more growth,” said Valerie Wise, Air Service Manager.

The previous highest record years occurred in 2007 (1,596,229) and 2008 (1,619,075).

For December, total passengers decreased 2.11% compared to December 2014.  The decline can be attributed to weather conditions that caused 39 cancelled flights in December.  Also, there were 6% fewer seats available compared to December 2014.
