Lincoln Airport Passenger Numbers Continue to Climb in 2015
The Lincoln Airport (LincolnAirport.com) experienced its third consecutive year of growth in passenger traffic in 2015 with traveler numbers up 13 percent. A total of 326,613 passengers flew in and out of Lincoln on Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and charter flights. The number of travelers using United and Delta grew by 15 percent.
Traffic growth on Delta was fueled by a full year of direct flights to Atlanta, leading to a 34-percent increase for the airline. United numbers grew by a more modest 5 percent.
David Haring, executive director of the Lincoln Airport, says most flights from the Lincoln Airport are nearly full.
“We expect the trend of full flights to continue in 2016,” said Haring. “But the rate of growth in passenger numbers will slow unless airlines add more capacity. We continue to explore opportunities for improved service through new destinations, additional flights and larger planes serving existing routes.”
Haring says travelers can expect more improvements in the Lincoln Airport experience in 2016, including enhancements in parking facilities and services.
