WARWICK, R.I. (AP) - Passenger traffic at Rhode Island's largest
airport fell to its lowest level for the first six months of the
year since the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
Officials at T.F. Green Airport in Warwick say about 2.2 million
people passed through the facility from January until June. People
who make round trips are counted twice.

lower than 2005.
The number of travelers using Green in the first six months of

percent, to about 385,000, compared to the same month last year.
