DAYTONA BEACH -- Passenger traffic at Daytona Beach International Airport increased 14 percent in November compared with the same month last year, according to VolusiaCounty officials.
During November 37,402 incoming and outgoing passengers traveled through Daytona Beach International Airport. This compares with 32,853 travelers recorded in November last year.
For the past 12 months, 491,339 travelers have flown in and out of the county-operated airport, a 16 percent increase compared to the same 12-month period for the prior year when the airport handled 422,452 total passengers.
