ST GEORGE, Utah (AP) - New data shows that St. George Regional Airport continues to grow and attracted a record number of passengers last year.

The St. George Spectrum reports (https://bit.ly/1PJrQcc ) that Federal Aviation Administration data released last week shows an 8.7 percent increase in the number of people boarding planes in St. George since 2013 and a 60 percent increase since 2010.

The airport offers daily flights to Salt Lake City and Denver and uses only one commercial airline, the St. George-based SkyWest Airlines.

With 59,321 passengers, the airport falls behind Salt Lake City and Provo as Utah’s third-busiest airport.

The current airport opened in 2011, a replacement for the old airport located on a mesa in the center of the city. The $160 million project was promoted as safer and economically beneficial.
