San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport Has Best First Quarter Ever

More than 113,000 passengers have flown out of the airport in 2019

SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA — The numbers are in: San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport (SBP) has had the busiest first calendar quarter in its history. A total of 113,320 passengers flew in and out of SBP during the initial three months of 2019, a 15 percent increase over last year’s 98,516 passengers.

This continues the airport’s five-year upward trend. 2018 was the airport’s busiest year on record, and SBP has been named one of the fastest growing airports in North America by Airports Council International – North America.

“Our strong passenger growth is exciting, consistent, and sustainable,” said Kevin Bumen, C.M., C.A.E, Director of Airports. “March marked the 27th month of consecutive passenger increases at the airport, and we’ve now doubled our passenger count from five years ago. We’re thrilled that our neighbors keep choosing to fly out of their hometown airport, and we will continue to provide them with the amenities and flights that keep them coming back.”

The passenger count is expected to continue rising next quarter as well: on April 2, American Airlines began daily nonstop service to Dallas/Ft. Worth.
