According to a reporter at the Rockford Register STar, RFD's traffic is up 70 percent this January compared to last. Thanks to Allegiant Air's flights to LAS
and Orlando. LAS
flights averaged 80 or more percent full in Jan and Orlando in the 70's. The reporter said more concret information will be available tomorrow in the afternoon when the press release comes out. RFD may has had its ups and downs, but overall the airport is doing better so far this year than last. And with the frequency to LAS
picking up to 6 days a week this month the traffic will be even higher. Also, UAX starts soon.
