Airport traffic continues growth

As it seems in most markets passenger traffic is in strong
growth pattern..

The Huntsville-Madison County Airport Authority has approved an operating budget for 2005-06 that projects more than 1.2 million passengers.

That's a projected passenger traffic increase of almost 14 percent over the current budget. The airport's new fiscal year starts July 1.

The budget has $24.7 million in revenues, and about $21 million in spending for the airport, Sheraton Four Points hotel and Jetplex Industrial Park operations.

The planned improvements include renovating the terminal and concourse, and expanding the parking deck and the air cargo apron.

Rick Tucker, the airport's executive director, reported that passenger traffic for 2005 through May was 522,477 - up 15.5 percent over the same period in 2004. The number of passengers in May reached 118,281, up more than 14.4 percent over May 2004.
