Jamestown Regional Airport sets new all-time boarding record


- al Airport saw its paid passenger boardings for March soar to 1,266, a new all-time record for the airport.

The Jamestown Regional Airport Authority reviewed the boarding numbers Wednesday. Airport Director Sam Seafeldt said this was the second month in a row that the paid passenger boardings record had been broken. The airport had 1,199 paid passenger boardings in February.

Total passenger boardings, which include paid and non-paid passengers, also set a new record for March with 1,301.

“March was our best month ever,” Seafeldt said.

Airport Authority Chairman Jim Boyd said SkyWest Airlines officials have been “very pleased” with the passenger boarding numbers at Jamestown Regional Airport. Boyd and Seafeldt spoke with SkyWest Airlines officials earlier this month.

“They said usually with their EAS (Essential Air Service) airports, there is a drop in passengers after the start of the year,” Boyd said. “We joked that we have good passenger numbers because everyone wants to get out of here during the winter.”

Seafeldt said there will be a dip in the numbers for April, but it will still be in the 800s for paid passenger boardings. For the year the airport is averaging 1,109 paid passenger boardings a month.
