More than one million passengers have enplaned at Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport, officials of the airport district announced.

GSP compared the past 12 months with the same period in 2015, on a rolling 12 months count. The airport is reporting more than one million departing passengers for the past three months – May, June, July. It’s the first time in its 54-year history GSP has had more than a million passenger enplanements.

“We’ve been seeing solid growth trends from our airline partners and so this major milestone is great news for the region and for the airport,” said Dave Edwards, President/CEO of the GSP Airport District.

“It’s an indication that the GSP Airport District and its airline partners are delivering the right environment with the right service at the right price,” said Edwards.

Since the beginning of the summer travel season, the new ticket lobby has opened along with the new centralized passenger screening checkpoint and the new automated exit lanes. Work continues on the second floor Grand Hall area and the Airside Garden. Both areas are expected to open prior to the end of the year, according to airport officials.
