The airport reported a total passenger number of 4,642,120, a 22% increase over August of 2021, but a slight decline from the record setting number posted in July.

Southwest Airlines continues to be the dominant carrier at Reid, followed by Spirit, Frontier, Delta and American.

Loosening COVD-19 travel restrictions in Europe helped the international numbers, which were up a whopping 209% from the same month one year ago.

For the first 8 months of this year, the passenger count at Reid is up just over 41% from the first 8 months of 2021.
