Last month 323,396 passengers traveled through the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport, compared to 283,125 passengers in July 2022. This represents an increase of 14%. The 12-month activity through July 2023 totals 4,185,188 passengers, a 12% increase compared to 3,752,032 passengers for the 12 months through July 2022. Year-to-date the airport has experienced a 14% increase in passenger traffic over the same period in 2022.

“We are excited to see our passenger traffic continue to grow at SRQ and are working hard on multiple construction projects to handle the future growth needs of the airport.  Last week we opened a new cell phone lot which provides paved parking and upgraded restroom facilities.  A new 5-gate terminal expansion is in on track to be completed by the end of next year and additional paved parking lots will be completed before this upcoming season’s peak travel days.  Concourse B is currently being refreshed with additional space for seating, new carpeting, a new companion assist restroom, and a new mother’s nursing room.

Additional projects will break ground in the next couple of months including a new ground transportation facility, expansion of the west air carrier apron, and expansion of the employee parking lot,” stated Rick Piccolo, President, CEO of the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport.
