JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - The Jackson Hole Airport served almost 300,000 passengers last year, a 7 percent increase over 2012 that’s attributed in part to new winter flights to the West Coast and the East Coast.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports (https://bit.ly/1bCOyBv ) 296,369 people boarded a plane at the airport in 2013, up from 278,000 passengers in 2012.

Airport manager Ray Bishop says new winter flights to Seattle and New York City are part of the picture, as are several other improvements at the airport, which is Wyoming’s busiest.

The airport’s busiest year was in 2008, when the passenger count hit 305,566.
