RIC sets a new all-time annual passenger record


The Capital Region Airport Commission reports that 2017 set a new, all-time annual passenger traffic record of 3,657,479 at Richmond International Airport (RIC), surpassing the previous mark established in 2007 (3,634,544). Additionally, the 2017 total represents a 2.8 percent increase over 2016 passenger traffic.
"The momentum we saw in the final quarter of 2017 was unmistakable," said Commission chairman Aubrey Stanley. "Despite a few hurdles with an early December snowfall and the historic power outage at our second most popular destination, the year finished with three record months, allowing RIC to report its fifth consecutive year of growth, establish a new annual passenger traffic record, and set an optimistic tone for more good news in 2018."

Passenger traffic

Closing out 2017, the Airport ended the year with new monthly passenger records being established in October, November, and December.
December passenger traffic rose 2.5 percent (292,273 in 2017 vs. 285,097 in 2016) and surpassed the previous mark set in 2007. Delta Air Lines was the market share leader in December with a 32.5 share of passenger traffic, followed by American and United. Three airlines, United (+19.1%), JetBlue (+10.6%), and American (+3.8%), reported growth in December.

Cargo and operations
For the year, total cargo handled at the airport amounted to 135.3 million pounds, a 0.6 percent increase versus 2016.  Aircraft operations increased two percent in 2017 to 96,583 operations. Air carrier, general aviation, and military aircraft operations all finished the year on a high note, reporting increases of 8.4, 32.1, and 84.3 percent, respectively, in December.
