Air Travel Slow To Recover

Deplanements

Traffic through the Jackson Hole Airport apparently is not quickly recovering from the recession – but at least it is improving gradually according to the monthly report to the airport board.  According to the monthly enplanement/deplanement report, the number of those catching flights out of the valley increased by one percent over January of 2010; just as those did who were arriving on the four commercial air carriers serving the valley.  However, the number of passengers arriving during the same month in 2010 had dropped six percent from 2009 which was, in turn, down from 2008.  Specifically, 19,919 arrived by air in Jackson Hole during January 2011 compared with 21,002 in 2009.  At the same time, ground transportation personnel at the airport are quick to point out that their business continues to be down for a second year. Meanwhile, the number of flights serving the valley are increasing once again and actually numbered 2% more than flew in and out of the valley in 2009.
