Airport traffic levels off

PANAMA CITY, Fla. -- Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport reported its first gain in passenger traffic in more than a year at a board meeting last week. Passenger traffic increased 2.74 percent over the previous year, the first traffic gain since August 2012. Airport Director Parker McClellan said he sees the passenger gain as the beginning of a leveling out process for the airport, due to a significant reduction in flights that took about 400 seats out of the market in the fall of 2012. The airport is in West Bay, northwest of Panama City. (Source: News Herald, 02/02/14)
