The Sacramento International Airport
achieved a significant milestone in May 2018, serving over one million passengers in a single month. The last time this benchmark was reached was in July 2007.
Sacramento International Airport served 1.052 million passengers in May 2018, marking a 12.3 percent increase in passenger traffic over May 2017. The number of available seats grew 11.8 percent in May compared to the same period last year.
With eight new nonstop markets added during the past twelve months and additional capacity to existing destinations, the airport expects to continue serving at least one million passengers in the months of June, July, and August.
“Our outstanding passenger loyalty and strong airline partnerships have combined to build our momentum. The SMF team strives to continually expand our nonstop destinations and the results are showing,” said Mark Haneke, manager of air service development and marketing for the Sacramento County Department of Airports.
