Passengers Up 3.7% at Eugene Airport

EUGENE, Ore. — Between bowl games and business travel the Eugene Airport reports a record number of passengers traveled through the airport in 2012.

Since 2011, the number of passengers increased by about 3.7 percent.

Airport managers say in the past five years significant gains have been because of bumps in leisure travel and more business travel because of an improving economy.

Both the Beavers and Ducks contributed to heavy team, band and fan traveling.

The airport also added two new non-stop routes and experienced two record travel days.
