San Antonio International Airport is celebrating it’s busiest month of March on record.
Nearly 800,000 visitors went through the airport terminal and City Councilman Joe Krier says there’s a couple of things that need to happen in order to continue that trend.
He says there needs to be plans in place for the needs of airline passengers 20 years from now.
Krier also cites the success of non-stop flights to Canada and Washington DC and says there needs to be more non-stops added.
So why are more people choosing to fly into or out of San Antonio International? Krier credits a strong economy which means more people can actually afford to travel by air.
He also notes that with traffic on I-35 being some of the worst in the country, people who used to go to Austin to fly out of that airport are choosing to avoid the traffic hassle and fly out of San Antonio instead.
