Burlington airport busier than in 2012; lags peak

Posted: Updated:

BURLINGTON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (AP) - Officials say people boarding planes at Vermont's Burlington International Airport were up in August over the same month a year earlier. But the airport still is not as busy as it was before the recent economic downturn.

Officials with the city-owned airport say 61,325 people boarded planes in August, up from 59,557 in August of 2012. August was the strongest month for the airport so far this year.

But it was down from 79,304 passengers boarding in 2008 and more than 75,000 a year later.

This year's August increase over 2012 followed a dip in July from the same month a year earlier.
