April 2014 Passenger Statistics

Aided by a late Easter holiday and late spring break season, April 2014 passenger statistics increased by another impressive margin.  Total passengers through Toledo Express rose 17.9% over April 2013 to 19,467, besting the usually heavy travel month of March 2014.  Allegiant Air handled 12,744 for an increase of 32.9% over April 2013 and American operated by Envoy Airlines handled 6,662, an increase of 3.8% over April 2013 despite one less daily flight.

Year to date, 66,631 passengers have passed through Toledo Express which is an increase of 15.4% over the same period last year.  Also, incredibly enough, year to date passenger travel is above the same period in 2010.

Outlook:  The rest of 2014 enplanements should remain flat to slightly negative as Allegiant Air has increase seating capacity but not flights in their schedule extensions.  American Airlines operated by Envoy Airlines will see capacity down around 13% for the summer, however, as long as pricing remains competitive, we should see flat to slightly negative passengers growth.  *Note – fall schedules have not been finalized.
