LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A record number of passengers flew into and out of Lafayette Regional Airport in 2012, marking three consecutive years of record-breaking passenger activity.
A total of 459,119 travelers flew into and out of the airport in 2012, topping the previous number of 455,730 set in 2011.
Mike Burrows, the airport's assistant director of aviation, credited the soaring activity to increased marketing efforts through the Fly Lafayette campaign.
