The Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) has just confirmed what we already knew … that the tourist season just ended was one of the most successful in history!
With more flights to more destinations, RSW served almost 1.12 million passengers in March – the LARGEST total for the month, and the BUSIEST month since the airport opened in May 1983.
The airport handled 234 flights in March 2012. That soared 54 percent to 361 flights in March of this year. More full flights swelled the ranks of passengers.
United Airlines served 52 percent more local passengers this March and Spirit Airlines doubled the number of cities it served from Fort Myers from three to six, raising its March passenger total by 37 percent, year-over-year.
