Southwest Florida International Airport scored record growth in the first quarter of 2018, including a 10.2 percent year-over-year increase in passengers for March, an 11.4 percent increase in February and an 8.2 percent increase over the same period last year.
In March alone, the airport served 1,379,728 fliers despite numerous flight cancellations … due to weather conditions in other parts of the United States. March historically is the airport's busiest month but this March now stands as the single-busiest month at the south Fort Myers airport, which will mark its 35th birthday in May.
RSW served more than 8.8 million passengers in 2017 and is one of the top 50 U.S. airports for passenger traffic. Today, 15 airline partners serve RSW with nonstop service throughout North America and international service to Canada and Germany.
