Local Air Travel is Up, Up and Away—But Only Slightly

Lynchburg Regional AirportLynchburg Regional Airport saw a very slight increase in passenger traffic last month. October’s increase of less than 1% is the most recent reported in four months of year-over-year drops. According to the Airport Director, the change is likely due to the fewer number of canceled flights in 2013 year compared to last year. Officials are hopeful that number will increase through the end of the year. According to AAA, the Wednesday before Thanksgiving is expected to be the busiest travel day of the season, with 37 percent of travelers hitting the roads, rails or airports that day.
