In the past two months, I have travelled nearly 5,000 miles via a vast assortment of automobiles, taxis, boats, ferries and, yes, airplanes. My expeditions included both major and not so major airports. Regardless of the size or location, each airport had one thing in common. Every airport I visited was undergoing some degree of construction, expansion, repairs, or other improvements.
TALE OF THE TAPE:
- In the United States, there are well over 15,000 airports and airfields. For educational purposes, know that roughly one-third of those have paved runways.
- Since a dip created by the recession in 2008-2009, air passenger numbers are back on the rise.
- Four of the world’s top eight busiest airports are in the U.S.
- From 2010-2014, the U.S. was by far the world leader with 762,560,000 air passengers carried. This number includes both domestic and international aircraft passengers of air carriers registered in the country.
It’s been well established that air travel continues to grow at a significant rate in the United States. As a result, airports have been compelled to improve and expand operations. While this includes the major airports in the U.S., it is assuredly not limited to just the more well noted airports. Regional airports are also raising their game. Here is one more example of opportunity at a smaller airport.
