For the first time since 2007, passenger traffic at Sacramento International Airport has increased for 12 straight months, officials said recently.
The increases are for the number of passengers each month compared to the month in the previous year.
The first three months of the year are typically slow for the airport, but this year’s first quarter has seen an increase of 5 percent over the first quarter last year, with more than 1 million passengers.
Airport officials expect the upward trend to continue, in part because of new service additions by four airlines, including Southwest Airlines, the airport’s largest carrier, adding service to Dallas’ Love Field last month.
