Rickenbacker Airport records strong cargo growth in H1 2017
Jul 27, 2017: Passenger and cargo volumes at John Glenn Columbus International Airport (CMH) and Rickenbacker International Airport (LCK) increased significantly year-to-date over 2016, supported by a thriving regional economy, new air service announcements and airport developments.
Cargo imports and exports at Rickenbacker rose 21 percent in the first half of 2017, driven by increased service from Etihad and Trinity Logistics, the 2016 expansion of Emirates, and the June 2016 opening of Air Cargo Terminal 5 in collaboration with public and private partners.
“Passenger and air freight carriers are capitalising on the dynamic opportunities that continue to arise in the Columbus Region, enabling our airports to offer additional travel options for passengers and strategic opportunities for businesses,” said Elaine Roberts, president & CEO of the Columbus Regional Airport Authority, which also oversees Bolton Field airport.
Passenger traffic rose 4.3 percent at John Glenn International where nearly 3.7 million people traveled through the terminal from January through June on Air Canada, American, Delta, Frontier, Southwest, United and Vacation Express. Passenger traffic at Rickenbacker, which includes Allegiant and passenger charter operations, is trending up 34 percent over the same period last year.
“Coupled with the Columbus Region’s strong economy and our strategic business plan, we have an extremely stable environment of growth and development to offer current and future air service partners,” said Roberts.'
