SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — San Antonio International Airport set a record last month.

961,838 passengers traveling through the airport in July making it the single busiest month on record.

“This is the single-busiest month of growth on record and the excitement builds each month as we wait for the monthly report,” said Russ Handy, Aviation Director for the City of San Antonio. “We eclipsed 10 million annual passengers for the first time ever just six months ago, and to think that we are already 300,000 passengers ahead of last year’s pace is just astounding.”

The airport is reporting increases in both domestic and international traffic along with a jump in total air cargo.

This growth comes even though the Boeing Max 737, a popular aircraft with several carriers, has been grounded worldwide.

July 2019 was the 37th consecutive month of increased traffic at the airport.
