PORTLAND – The Portland International Jetport reports positive passenger growth in 2013. Some 1,675,978 passengers used the Jetport in 2013, which represents an increase of 3.7% over 2012.
“The Portland International Jetport carried 59,255 more passengers in 2013,” said Paul Bradbury, Airport Director. “There were a lot of factors contributing to the increase and a big contributor was the addition of Southwest Airlines in April of 2013.”
The Jetport is also happy to announce that Southwest Airlines will offer new Saturday nonstop service to Chicago’s Midway Airport starting June 14. This service offers connections to 64 cities with over 200 daily flights. They will also add a fourth daily nonstop flight to Baltimore June 09, 2014. This service is now available to travelers via www.southwest.com.
"This addition clearly is in response to the growing demand for travel to and from Portland and the increased use of the Jetport,” said Bradbury.
