CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- The Eastern Iowa Airport saw a record number of passengers for the month of February.
The total number of passengers last month was 89,854. That's up by 3.4% from the previous record.
The airport's director Marty Lenss says airlines are adding more seating in planes. He says that's part of the reason for the record number of passengers.
"The continued airline investment into CID speaks strongly to the strength of our regional economy. When the airlines experience a positive response to their investment it further enhances our collective ability to retain service and look toward future growth opportunities," said Lenss.
