SOUTHWEST FLORIDA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT SEES INCREASED TRAFFIC, COMPLETES BOND SALE

NASAO Friend, Southwest Florida International Airport, recently released its numbers for the month of May, sharing that it served 602,891 passengers for a year-over-year increase of 2 percent. Year-to-date passenger traffic is also up 4.8 percent when compared to the same period of time last year. Delta Airlines was the busiest carrier for the airport with 156,411 passengers, followed closely by Southwest which had 143,100.
In separate news, the airport has completed the sale of $33.4 million airport revenue refunding bonds to refinance the outstanding portion of an earlier bond issue designed to help fund the new terminal complex. The Lee County Port Authority took advantage of a strong rally in the municipal market to sell the airport bonds at very favorable interest rates.
