RDU sets new record for monthly traffic

Raleigh-Durham International Airport keeps breaking traffic records.

Memorial Day, Mother’s Day and college graduations contributed to a steady increase in passenger traffic in May, which set a new record for monthly traffic.

More than 1.4 million people flew through the airport in May, a 10.5% increase from April.

The surge in traffic was higher than expected, with a 9.7% increase over Memorial Day weekend compared with the same weekend last year. 

As The 10th Street Journal previously reported, the airport set a single-day record after Mother’s Day and graduation weekend, with nearly 59,000 travelers passing through the terminals.
