SRQ Passenger Growth Increases for May 2022  
 
In May 332,431 passengers traveled through the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport, an increase of 43,880 over May 2021.  Passengers traveling through the airport year-to-date totaled 1,803,944 compared to 1,146,782 year-to-date for 2021, an increase of 57%.   Both Southwest and United Airlines showed year- to- date increases of 100% or more compared to the first five months of 2021.
 
“We continue to see growth as we come into our summer months at SRQ.  However, rising fuel prices and pilot and personnel shortages with the airlines nationwide continue so some schedule cutbacks are expected. Therefore, it is recommended you book your travel early to assure you get your desired destinations,” stated Rick Piccolo, President, CEO of the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport. 
 
Upcoming New Service
Allegiant Air will start nonstop service to Minneapolis, MN (MSP) beginning October 6th.
