Hampton Roads Airline Passenger Volumes Decrease in 2010

Hampton Roads Airline Passenger Volumes Decrease in 2010

The total number of passengers at Hampton Roads commercial airports decreased from 4,427,792 in 2009 down to 4,394,473 in 2010, a decline of 0.8%. Since 2005 (the peak of airline travel in Hampton Roads), the number of passengers through Hampton Roads airports has decreased 11.1%.

Norfolk International Airport (ORF) is the largest airport in Hampton Roads, serving 3,332,466 passengers in 2010. This represents a decrease of 2.3% since 2009, and a decrease of 14.2% since 2005. On the other hand, Newport News-Williamsburg International Airport (PHF) served 1,062,007 passengers in 2010, setting a record high for the airport. Passenger volumes at PHF increased 4.2% from the 1,019,336 passengers in 2009, and have increased 0.3% since 2005. The Newport News-Williamsburg International Airport opened a new concourse and added Frontier Airlines in 2010, which may have contributed to the higher passenger volumes.
