  • Follow Latest News

The Augusta Regional Airport had its best year since 2000 with passenger boardings surpassing 200,000.

The airport had 202,908 departing passengers in 2009, it reported today. That is a 12 percent increase over 2008.

In 2000, there were 208,444 enplanements, according to Federal Aviation Administration. In 2006, only 134,000 people flew out of the airport.

Total passengers for 2009 were 399,077, also a 12 percent increase over the prior year.

Load factors, the overall percentage of filled seats on flights, was 76 percent in spite of more seats being added into the market, said airport spokeswoman Diane Johnston.

US Airways Express flies to Augusta six times a day from Charlotte, N.C. Delta connection carrier Atlantic Southeast Airlines has 10 flights daily from Atlanta.

I will say this for the

I will say this for the Augusta Airport, since ASA quit flying the propeller planes into AUG, the service and reliability has greatly improved. I would also commend Delta or whoever is responsible for getting the fares very competitive. I fly almost every week and quite often find fares cheaperout of AUG than even ATL, which used to almost never happen. Hats off also to the gate agents, security and ground crew at AUG, all of whom are very professional and friendly.

399,077 total passengers.

399,077 total passengers. I'll bet close to 399,077 pieces of lost luggage. I wonder what percentage of flights were late, what percentage were cancelled, etc. My experience with Augusta Regional has been that their performance grade would be a good strong solid F.

Knowing that people tend to

Knowing that people tend to set data I wonder what is classified as a "departing passenger"? Are pilots and cabin crew classified as departures, and how about private aircraft?. In any event it is refreshing to see that after spending millions of dollars we are almost at the amount of usage the old terminal had.

I love Augusta airport. I fly a lot for business, and I always fly out of Augusta. My luggage has never been lost or delayed. I fly US Air, and my flights are on time, not canceled.

It's Airtran. Used to be Valujet. And Augusta is not a big enough market for LCCs. Not to mention its proximity to ATL. They figure there are plenty of passengers to carry out of Atlanta from both the city and its surrounding areas without having to set up shop in Augusta, Savannah, etc.
