San Antonio airport jobs added

Tuesday, June 5th, 2018

A number of San Antonio airport jobs have been added, according to recent statistics.

San Antonio International Airport (SAT) reported unprecedented growth in passenger statistics in the month of March. During that time, San Antonio hosted the NCAA Men’s Final Four, which drew record numbers of passengers during the last week of March and into the first week of April.

According to industry reports, a record 848,233 passengers flew through the airport during the final month of the first quarter. This is a remarkable 10.65% increase over the same month last year. This represents the highest level of passenger traffic for any month on record, with the exception of July 2017.

TSA security screened an average of 1, 200 passengers per hour during peak departure times, while non-commercial general aviation and charter traffic soared with 989 arrivals and 1,010 departures during the week of the Final Four.

Domestically, traffic climbed 10% compared to the same time last year. This boost is attributed to both the Final Four and new routes on Frontier and American Airlines. International traffic surged by 38.3%, with new and additional service to Toronto and Mexico City contributing to the increase.

More than 22,000,000 pounds of cargo passed through SAT in the month of March, for a 6.1% increase from year to year.

March 2018 represents the 21st consecutive month of passenger growth at SAT.
