On Friday, 23,760 people traveled through the facility, more than in 2019, almost a full year before the pandemic lockdown.

  • FRIDAY – 23,760 passengers
  • SATURDAY – 18.200
  • SUNDAY – 18,000
  • MONDAY – 22.470

The totals were a long way from 2020, when the airport struggled with a pandemic-stricken daily high of just 5,000 passengers that same weekend.
