The increase is 5.4% above 2006 numbers. It's really amazing when you consider the passenger count in 1997 was only 2.9 million.

Anyone have the numbers for ROC, SYR and ALB? just curious how they compare from 2006 to 2007.

Me thinks B6 had something to do with the drastic increase over '97.

The increase has alot more to do with the Canadians than any airline.

Yes, Canadian travelers or passengers bound for Toronto, form a significant part of the traffic thru' BUF....

The real reason is lower fares, which is obviously created by WN, B6, and FL. Most of those Canadians would not drive across the border if not for the savings vs. flying out of Toronto.

I also credit the easy to use modern terminal and non-stop service to places like LAS.

Glad to see the Security expansion. I am through BUF every 2 to 3 weeks and the lines can get HUGE. Often, though, TSA does not have all lanes open, and there are a LOT of frantic passengers running for the gates, due to TSA delays.
And, as a Canadian from Hamilton, there is NO WAY I will fight Pearson (YYZ) for US destined flights when BUF is almost just as close!



I love to fly, and it shows!

I found Rochester's TSA facilities to be more ample, and easier to get through then the long lines at BUF. If you're talking about an early morning departure and you're among the first there, the scramble at BUF is a lot worse than that of ROC. ROC is quite comfortable to fly out of. Of course, the difference in bus fare doesn't quite justify it though. Plus, you need a taxi from the bus depot to the airport (average is $25 OW for BUF; and $15 for ROC). Farther to go to ROC from YYZ, and bus fare more expensive. Sometimes the difference between BUF and ROC isn't that much. However, I would still choose ROC because of its to travel out from. ROC, if you take time to appreciate it, the downtown is more modern and more uplifting in ambience than that of BUF. Overall, I like ROC better.

Hence the reason they are adding infrastructure to BUF that will allow for a new baggage claim system and expanded security area. Several times I've been at BUF for the first flight out on a Monday morning after a Bills game. The queue line can go back to the escalators. It's a huge line no doubt, but it only takes about 30-35 minutes to get through it. That's not too bad for the major rush hour of the day. Many of the Canadian travelers who arrive that early stay overnight at local hotels. I'm sure they are not cutting it too close if they are willing to be so diligent about getting to the area a full day in advance.
