While putting together information for Sunday’s Market Report, I learned that the Bellingham Airport set a new record for the number of people flying out in a month. Here are the numbers:
May 2009: 28,087
April 2009: 27,342
May 2008: 22,333
The May total is 25.8 percent higher than May 2008. It may increase even more in June, with Alaska now flying to Las Vegas and Allegiant ramping up its B-ham to Los Angeles flights.
