Walla Walla Air Travel Zooms to New Heights

horizon brand new

 Last year was the biggest for commercial air travel in Walla Walla, and not by a little.

Commercial air passenger numbers at the Walla Walla Regional Airport were poised to surpass the 40,000 mark for the first time in history, but then ended up burying that by another 1,000 passengers, the end-of-year numbers show.

A total of 41,259 passengers flew out of the airport in 2015. That figure is up 13.7 percent from 2014.

Even slightly more passengers — 41,277, flew into Walla Walla in 2015. That was also up 13.7 percent for the year.
