SFO 2019 Traffic Numbers

Fri Feb 14, 2020 6:55 am

Based on this the airport handled 57.488M, which is less than 2018. Does anyone know why this would have decreased? Norwegian moved flights from OAK, and others started numerous routes/frequencies.

Possibly the Max grounding played some part in it?

The year-over-year changes are right in that report for Dec 2019, by region. It was domestic and Latin America. The domestic decline was big enough segment to swamp international growth.

Runway construction in September didn't help but that was a short blip and of course the MAX is forcing a bit more capacity discipline for United than it would otherwise have.

That said, the broader more structural change is probably the continued fast growth of SJC. SJC grew 3x as many passengers as SFO lost. People have a preference to fly into SJC whenever possible over delay-prone SFO.

While on the fringes and probably atypical, I know people that prefer to connect to get to SJC than fly nonstop to SFO if they are working in Santa Clara county. Between delays and the traffic to get down there, connecting is often a better option than the nonstop to SFO in terms of total time.

Total emplaned passengers were down about 350k for the full year with the total at just over 57M. 200k of that was the Sept runway construction so the decline is about .25%. Pretty small in the bigger scheme of things.
