SAVANNAH, GA – Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport has set another passenger record welcoming 241,235 travelers in July and breaking its previous monthly passenger record set earlier this year in May. Enplanements for the month were up 17% bringing the total number of passengers for 2017 to 1,449,478 an increase of 13% over the same period one year ago.
The airport has seen an increase in overall capacity – meaning more seats and more airlines for passengers – reporting a 15% gain in the number of available seats for the month. The key reason for stronger numbers can be contributed to the addition of seat capacity due to larger aircraft on several routes including those on American and United and the addition of seasonal service with Air Canada, and Allegiant.
Savannah/Hilton Head International currently offers 23 destinations with 49 daily non-stop departures and several additional weekly nonstop flights and destinations offered seasonally. For current flight information, check the Airport’s website at www.flySAV.com.
