Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport continued its streak of record-setting passenger activity by welcoming 224,864 total passengers during March; the highest monthly passenger total in the history of Gateway Airport.
March represented the 18th consecutive month of year-over-year passenger growth for the airport. For the first quarter of 2019, activity is up 24% over the same time period in 2018, according to a release.
Gateway Airport has taken several steps during the past year to prepare for this growth in passenger activity, increasing parking capacity and expanding terminal roadways, TSA security checkpoint lanes, and improving checked baggage handling systems, according to the release.
