Palm Springs International Airport (PSP) continues its pandemic rebound by setting another passenger record in July!
On the heels of even more route announcements, PSP broke another passenger record. Total passenger counts for July reached 129,463, or a 32% increase over the previous record set in July 2019 when 97,834 total passengers utilized the airport. PSP started its return to pre-pandemic levels in May and has exceeded pre-pandemic numbers throughout the summer.
July 2021 passenger numbers are up 283% compared to July 2020, however, 2021 year-to-date passenger numbers are still lagging 2019 by 37%.
“This summer has been one of the busiest we’ve ever had at the airport, and we expect this rebound to continue with more available flights and ten new routes starting this fall,” said Palm Springs Mayor Christy Holstege. “With the completion of the ticket lobby renovations and the installation of a new baggage system, we are improving the airport user experience and accommodating future demand.”
