“While our passenger traffic decreased slightly compared to last February because of leap year in 2012, it would have increased by 1.9 percent if we adjust for the extra day,” said Manager of Aviation Kim Day. “Our year-to-date numbers are on track, and I am happy to say that the number of destinations flown to and from Denver increased from 167 in February 2012 to 175 this February. Working with airlines to add new service continues to be a priority at Denver International Airport.”
