In April, Colorado Springs Airport (COS) saw a total of 194,004 passengers travel through the terminal, which represents a 15.4 percent increase from last April. Enplanements were up by 15.6 percent year-over-year, with 97,293 travelers boarding a plane out of COS in April.

“We have consistently seen an increase in traffic at COS, and as we approach the summer months, we anticipate that this trend will continue. This reflects the strong support of our community for our airport,” said Greg Phillips, Director of Aviation. 

With a 10.2 percent YOY increase of seats available in April, totaling 118,774 seats for the month, COS saw a nice increase in enplanements and a 3.8 percent increase in load factors, averaging 81.9 percent for the month across all nonstop options.

Looking ahead to summer travel, seats are 6 percent higher from June through August than in the same period last year. This summer will also boast an array of new air service, including Avelo Airlines Hollywood-Burbank/Los Angeles (BUR) nonstop flight, Sun Country Airlines, and Delta Air Lines nonstop flights to Minneapolis/St. Paul (MSP), and on June 4, Southwest Airlines will initiate nonstop service to Baltimore/Washinton (BWI).  In addition, Delta will launch a second daily nonstop service to Atlanta (ATL) starting in July.
