According to a press release from the Eastern Iowa Airport, June was an all-time record-breaking month.
The total number of passengers in June was 127,333, which is a new record for the location. Year-over-year, that is a 19.5 percent increase from June 2018.
Airport officials attributed the increase to bigger planes, more flights, and a new Nashville route on Allegiant Airlines.
The previous record was set in March 2019. The new mark is 4.6 percent higher than that month's passenger total.
