IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - More than a quarter-of-a-million passengers traveled through the Idaho Falls Regional Airport (IDA) during 2018, according to the most recent numbers compiled by airport personnel.
The total of 320,000 passengers is an increase of more than 30,000 passengers from 2017. That is a 10 percent increase over the previous year and the highest totals for the airport for more than a decade.
“Those passenger figures are pretty significant, especially when you consider we were closed for an entire week this year to renovate the runway,” said IDA Director Rick Cloutier. “Had we not been shut down during that time, those number would have been much higher.”
With the exception of Boise, more than twice as many passengers used IDA in 2018 than any other regional airport in Idaho.
IDA currently has seven non-stop destinations to serve Idaho Falls travelers.
