PEORIA – The month of March marked a new record for the Peoria International Airport.

More than 59,000 people traveled through the airport last month.

That’s the highest passenger count ever for a single month.

Ridership is up for both leisure and business travel.

Because of spring break travel, March has become the new peak month for PIA.

This year’s numbers are more than 5% higher than last year’s record.
