The Peoria International Airport continues to break ridership records into the summer months.

The airport just reported its highest monthly passenger count ever with more than 59,000 passengers flying in June.

That number is up nearly ten percent when compared to June of last year.

PIA has been breaking passenger records since March of this year after a brutal winter set-back.

The airport’s traveler total is more than 230,000 in the last four months.
