Rockford airport records busiest month ever

Posted: Updated:
ROCKFORD, Ill. (Associated Press) -

The addition of flights to sunny Florida helped a northern Illinois airport record its busiest month ever this spring.

Chicago Rockford International Airport in Rockford served 35,453 passengers in March. That surpassed the airport's previous record of 33,333 passengers set in March 2012.

In a statement, airport Director Mike Dunn says new Allegiant Air service to Ft. Myers, Fla., helped boost the numbers. So did Apple Vacations routes to places such as Cancun, Mexico.

The airport is served by three airlines: Allegiant, Apple Vacations and Frontier Airlines. It offers non-stop flights to nine destinations, including Cancun, Denver, Las Vegas, Orlando and Phoenix.
