NY Airport boardings climb and officials credit winter
With storms and heavy snowfall during the winter,
New Yorkers are constantly encouraged to fly to
warmer areas for an escape.
According to data released this week
by Albany International Airport,
the number of passengers between
Jan. and Mar. this year increased by 1.5%
compared with the same period last year.
The main reason for the increase was
this year's long winter and brutal snowstorms.
American Airlines saw the highest increase
this March, up 7.7% from last year.
Southwest Airlines increased by 7.1%.
