Appleton International Airport posted its strongest January passenger results in the airport's 53-year history. January 2018 passengers were up 19 percent compared to January 2017, increasing 48,687 passengers.
Appleton International Airport has had nine straight months of passenger increases.
"We're offering more flights than ever before, and customers are telling us they appreciate more choices," said Abe Weber, airport director. "Our airline staff, TSA team and everyone at the airport really noticed the increase in customers, and it's been a lot of fun for everyone here."
Part of the increase is due to United Airlines' strategy to focus on smaller airports. United passengers increased 34.5 percent compared to January 2017.
"The people of Northeast Wisconsin are behind our airport and our airport gratefully serves them," said Thomas Nelson, Outagamie County Executive. "If there were an Olympic medal for community support, ours would win the gold."
