Denver airport traffic dips in October
December 10, 2008
DENVER ” Traffic at Denver International Airport was essentially flat in October, but the 0.1 percent dip was enough to break the airport’s 21-month string of monthly increases.
The 4.2 million passengers who used the airport in October were about 2,800 fewer than the number in October 2007.
Denver Aviation Manager Kim Day said Wednesday that Denver did better than other airports, which reported double-digit declines in October. Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, for instance, reported an 11 percent drop in passenger volume.
Denver airport officials still expect at least 50 million passengers to have traveled through the airport for 2008, topping the record set last year of 49.8 million passengers.
