The airport saw more visitors this April than in any since it opened, staff members told the Jacksonville Aviation Authority board on Monday, with 545,386 people enplaning and deplaning.

This is up 13.55 percent from April 2017 and represents the seventh month of year-over-year passenger growth — a sustained period of growth that hasn’t been seen in a decade, said Chief Financial Officer Richard Rossi.

For the first seven months of the year, enplanements and deplanements were up 6.5 percent, with 1.7 million passengers using the airport.
