DENVER – Over 4 million travelers passed through Denver International Airport in September to set a record for the month.

The airport said Monday that the 4.35 million passengers seen in September was up 8.6 percent from the roughly 4 million travelers who used the airport during the same month last year and also in 2008, when the record for September was set.

Through the first nine months of 2010, about 39.5 million passengers have gone through the airport. That’s up 3.1 percent from the same nine-month period in 2009 and up about .4 percent from that period during the airport’s busiest year in 2008.

Flight operations and cargo handled at the airport in September were also up from September 2009.
