JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - The Jackson Hole Airport is on track to set a record this year for the highest number of passengers.

Airport officials are reporting more than 48,100 air travelers in July, a month that’s typically the second-busiest of the year.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports (http://bit.ly/1oHFqlx ) that 189,000 people had boarded a commercial jet at the airstrip this year through the end of July. The travel hub is tracking for a record year.
